Christmas Floral Ornament – by Heidi Blankenship

This is another one of those ‘OH MY’ projects!  Heidi created a mini Christmas floral ornament for us today using one of the little Maya Road Vintage Linen Treasure Bags as her base.  She filled it with cotton balls, added a few holiday greenery floral sprigs and embellished away using some Prima poinsettias, a Kaisercraft die cut Christmas image, some gorgeous ribbons and a bit of sparkly glitz.  She did use a hot glue gun on this project.  I adore little projects of this type!  Wouldn’t these be fun to make for those small girlfriend exchange gifts so many of us do?  Or for a hostess or teacher gift — wonderful!!!  Let’s take a look:


So very, very beautiful!!!  Just pause to check out every detail — there’s a lot to take in!

The finished project is about 6″ high.
