Sparkly Ornaments Packaging!!

I have received some questions about my pretty little sparkly ornaments. So here are the answers to your questions. The colors that I used for my reinkers were Purely Pomegranate (retired SU), Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, and Perfectly Plum. I matched the color of reinkers that I had with the colors of the Fine Cosmo Glitter (also from SU). I think they came out pretty well for the first time making them.

Since I was in such a rush to post pictures of them, you didn't get to see how I finished them up and packaged them. So I am sharing those photos with you today. I made a 12 x 12 box and top following Robin's directions here: She was my total inspiration for trying the ornaments and packaging them up in the boxes.

I attached some satin pomegranate ribbon (also retired SU), that I had left from last year. Some of the ornaments have the silver cording. I put some of the Christmas rubons on some, as you can see in the photo, some came out a little crooked!

Then I attached a top note die gift tag, which I made in my previous technique video, which you can find a link to on the right hand side of my blog under technique videos!

Hope this helps! I hope some of you try this fun project! I will be busy packaging them all up today and preparing for my Christmas SAS tomorrow afternoon! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Happy Stampin!
