Christmas anyone? Ready or not; here it comes!
Do you ever give money or gift cards for Christmas? Deflecto has a product that's ideal for making an ornament that will conceal a gift card or money! The photo given shows the top clip which is attached to the tree limb. The bottom clip has the paper ornament glued to it, concealing the clip and the money or gift card that is held in the clip.
You can have fun with this. I punched various sized circles and scalloped circles and embellished them with foil and pine stems. Chipboard stickers and chenille stems were used for further embellishing. I used foil and pine chenille type stems. If you would like to cover up the top clip; make a bow from ribbon and adhere it to the front of the clip. I used glitter glue to enhance the snowflakes and the paper.
Below is a stock company photo of the clip that I used for the ornaments.
Some close-up photos of my Christmas surprise clips.
Left over paper scraps from your Christmas card making are great for creating these ornaments. Use die-cuts, punches, stickers and other embellishments to decorate them. The size of your ornament will probably depend on the size of the tree you will be hanging it on. The circles used here were 3" and 2-1/2". Have fun with it! You can also adhere a photo of the recipient or a tag with their name to the clip.
Thank you for stopping by the blog today. May you have a blessed and joyful holiday season! Hope you were inspired to have some creative fun!
Take time to enjoy the small blessings along the way and
Live Life with a Flourish!
