Countdown to Christmas – Shaker Ornament

Hello! It’s been a while since I have posted but I am trying to get better at it! I’ve just started my weekly Live@Lunch Countdown to Christmas series so my goal is to do a blog post to go along with my video!

Today I kicked off the series with a fun little shaker ornament. It’s easy to make and one box of Mason Jar Shaker Domes is enough to make 5 double sided ornaments or 10 single sided ornaments.

To make this ornament cut a piece of 6″ x 6″ Designer series paper in half. Hold the 3″ x 6″ pieces of DSP together with the same side (design) facing out and punch with the Mason Jar Punch. Trim 6″ length to about 3 1/2″ to 4″. If desired you can trim the 3″ width to about 2 1/2″ by trimming 1/4″ from each side

Next, punch the Penguin Body with the Penguin Builder Punch. Stamp details on white body part and attach to black body part.

Now comes the fun part! Place the penguin body in one of the Mason Jar Shaker domes and add some subtle shimmer sequins. Remove the adhesive covering from the back of the Mason Jar Shaker Domes and carefully align the domes, creating a full jar effect. Remove adhesive covering from the front of one of the domes and align DSP over it. Flip the ornament and repeat the process on the back side, adding some liquid glue along the edges of the DSP.

Add elements to Mason Jar Shaker Domes

Punch a hole in the top of your ornament and thread about 8″ to 10″ of ribbon through hole. Tie ribbon ends together in a knot, trimming ends if necessary. Hang your ornament on a tree or add to a gift box or bag for a little extra “WOW”.
