Hello friends!
We are getting closer and closer to Christmas...are you ready?!!
Yeah, I'm getting there in bits and pieces right now!! LOL!!

So happy you have stopped here today!
Have you been following along over on the
  Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Blog?
Sunday was the first day of their "12 Days of Christmas Event"!
There has been lots and lots of inspiration over there every day from the talented design team members along with a fun game and a chance at winning a prize!  Don't worry if you haven't been over there on the first day BECAUSE there is a special "hint" on every post for a chance at winning...so there is still PLENTY of time to "collect" all of the clues!! :)

I hope you will pop on over there to join in the fun and see some inspiration!
Today is  "...the Fourth Day of Christmas, my true love sent to me..." (are you singing now?!)
Well sorry to disappoint anyone, but I do NOT have  the "four calling birds" to share!  LOL!

However, what I do have is a very fun and easy Christmas ornament:
Yes, at least I did manage to get my Christmas tree up and decorated! :)
I have wanted to make these ornaments for such a long time and was excited to be able to put a couple of them together this year!

They're so pretty in person and I think it would be fun to make several of these to match your tree colors or recycle those Christmas cards or use up those papers with that we always seem to hoard so much of!  It really doesn't take that much to make either! (Well, depending upon the size you make, it will take up more paper the larger you go with it.)

For the smaller of these two ornaments, that I show you how to make in the video below, I have used the papers from the Whimsy Stamps October 2015 Christmas Card Kit.  (They are SOLD OUT of this AND the November kit as well, BUT....don't worry, they will be coming out with a brand new card kit next month for 2016....so stay tuned in for it!!)

I have also used the Whimsy Stamps Stitched Circles Die Set to cut out all of the circles to make the ornament.  I thought it was fun to use this die to cut them out because it has the stitched lines on each circle and it gives the ornaments a little extra decorative element.  You could actually use any shape you want, but I found that the circles were easiest to work with.

I have also just used some basic supplies I had on hand like the gold cord to tie the circles together and the loop for hanging on the tree.  I have also used a hot glue gun, but you could also use any strong adhesive that you might have on hand along with some liquid glue, gold ribbon and gold glitter for decorating the top of the ornament if you'd like.

To see how I've put together these ornaments, check out the video below!

I hope that you have enjoyed my 4th Day of Christmas inspiration!  :)
Please be sure to hop on over to the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations blog to see what the new clue is and be sure you don't miss a day to pick up the clues for a chance at winning a prize! While you're there, you can view all of the wonderful inspiration!

Hope you enjoy the rest of the "12 Days of Christmas" event! ;)

Thanks so much for dropping in and I'll see you soon!

These are beautiful, Vicky. Next year I'm going to do better with all non card projects, I'd love to have some of these one my tree...
Sorry I'm late visiting in December, there are things going on all the time, different events, concerts, parties, birthdays and all the last minute shopping and card making. Not in a stressful way, but it limits my computer time. But I'm still here and will check back in my spare moments of this hectic month.

Marvelous paper ornaments, Vicki! I had forgotten about these. I'll have to make some new ones since the older ones somehow disappeared during the move a couple of years ago. :-D
