If you have seen the cover of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, you have probably done some major drooling over the luscious ornament featured there. If you haven't seen the catalog, this is what it looks like:

Anyway, I am so excited! Yesterday I actually made one! Here's what mine ended up looking like:

(I should have held mine at the same angle.)

I was lacking two of the essential supplies, so mine isn't as pretty as the cover photo. I didn't have the Stampin' Up! rosette maker or the gorgeous Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper. So I made my not-as-pretty rosette a different way, and from Old Olive card stock. I also didn't use glitter on mine. The finished ornament (or maybe decoration?) is about 6" in diameter. It is such a stunner.

If you're interested in making one of these beauties for yourself (or for everyone on your Christmas list!), following is the supplies list:

There are lots of videos on how to create this ornament online, but the one I used, that I found to be very helpful, is this one:

To order any of the products you need to produce these ornaments, just click on one of the catalog boxes in the right column of my blog. Supplies come from both the big catalog and the Holiday Catalog.

If you do decide to create one of your own (or for lots of others!), I hope you enjoy the process. I did.
