We are enjoying the winter wonderland we have now! We just received 3 inches of snow and it was beautiful falling, huge big snow flakes. It reminded us of the SnowFlakes & Stars Wire Elements in Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog and inspired us to create. We immediately thought how cute would they make as ornaments for a tree! You can use them as decorations on top of a gift or put them in the Kraft Pillow Box like we have done. We hope you enjoy this quick and simple idea. Happy Stamping~ Nancy and Kayla

Stamp your greeting and pine cones on scrap Whisper White cardstock using Versamark.
Sprinkle the Copper embossing power over those images and heat using your Heat Tool being careful not to get to close for you can burn the paper.
Punch out the greeting using the 2-1/4” circle punch and use the matching dies to cut out the pine cones.
Punch out the Starburst on the Copper Foil paper.
Attach the 2-1/4” stamped greeting to the Copper Starburst by offsetting it a bit then attach to the Pearlized Doily.
Cut 6” of ribbon, for each ornament, and tie a knot on each of the Snowflakes & Stars.
Attach the greeting to the front of the card using the dimensionals making sure to put in the middle so the the sides are free and not attached.
Insert your ornaments into the box and tie a ribbon at the top.
