Joyful Stars November Blog Hop

 photo JoyfulStarsBlogHopBadge3_zpsa824a544.jpgWelcome to the Joyful Stars November Blog Hop!  If you have come from Elizabeth's Blog, then you are on the right track.  This month I have a Christmas Ornament that can be used as a photo holder for your desk or an ornament for your tree.  You can also put small photos on some or all of the sides.  The base is one of the blocks from Z1737 My Creations Collage Cubes.

Each side of the cube is covered with pattern paper from the Sparkle and Shine Paper Packet.  The bow is cut at 1 1/4" in Ruby Cardstock using the Close To My Heart Artiste Cartridge.  It is Accent 3 on page 56 of the booklet.  There is an extra strip 3/8" x 2" cut from Ruby and wrapped around the bow to conceal the large hole in the bow.  

 I used one of the Foundry Pin Clips (Z1612) for the top of the cube to hold a photo or hang the ornament.  These are only available in the "While Supplies Last" section of my website.   The "frame" on the front is on page 61 the Artiste booklet.  It is Accent 4 (shift) cut in White Daisy at 1 1/4" and Ruby Cardstock at 1 1/2".  The frame is stamped in Ruby Cardstock using a stamp from G1071 the Sparkle and Shine Workshop on the Go Kit.
Lori's Blog is the next stop.  Enjoy the hop and Happy Crafting!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family and be sure to stop by again next month.

Pin It!


  1. Great project Betty. Super cute ornament!!!

  2. What a clever way to make a photo block and an ornament all in one! Great idea!

  3. This not only good for an ornament, but it would also be good for a place setting. Thanks

  4. I have never thought of using the pin clips this way! What a great idea! I'm off to make some for gifts.

  5. What a terrific idea! I may have to scrap lift this one. :o)

  6. This is a great idea. I may make them with my class for parent gifts.
