clean & simple sunday no. 131

It’s another clean and simple Sunday here on CheckerberryLane and today I wanted to share an idea for a clean and simple Christmas ornament…

I used the maple tags from A Muse Studio as a base for the ornaments. These are round, flat disks of sanded maple and they give a nice weight to the ornaments. The snowflakes were cut out of coaster board using the Snowflake Trio Too dies (the largest die). The coaster board has a subtle texture and it’s thicker than regular card stock.

These ornaments have a very natural look to them, especially if you add the white button and the natural twine as a hanger. You can certainly color and sparkle these ornaments up with Copics, Splash! ink, glitter and twinkle stickers, but I chose to leave mine natural.

These would be pretty on any Christmas tree, as a cute package tie-on or even to give as a gift! If you’d like to make some, I’ve created a printable tutorial you can download for free.
