This hanging ornament (front and back showing here) uses the middle sized Christmas tree Nestie die cut, and the beautiful matching image is from SparkleNSprinkle.com. First, I stamped the image on white card stock in red ink and then in green ink. Next I die cut both images, added two stars and ribbon. The edges are inked and the tree is sponged with green ink. This is fast and easy and could also make a cute gift tag.

NESTIES CHRISTMAS TREE PAPER PINS AND ORNAMENT
As mentioned in the previous post, these are Paper Pins made with the Nesties smallest Christmas tree die. I die cut two pieces of green card stock and one piece of chip board and modge podged them together and let dry. Next I modge podged the front of the pin and added seed beads, thread and paper stars. Dab a little extra modge podge to secure your decorations and let dry. Last, I modge podged the back, cut a strip of card stock small enough to fit a safety pin and adhered the pin, in an upright position. This is easy and fun. I have been wearing one for a few days now and it is holding up just fine.
