Christmas Ornaments

I finally finished 12 little sleds for personalized Christmas ornaments! Here is the photo of them! What a job! You can see the names on some but a few have the names in gold emboss which does make them a bit harder to see.
I purchased the little wooden sleds at Jo-Anns for $1 each. I primed with white gesso then painted or sprayed with craft paint, Lumiere paint, or Walnut ink, depending on the paper used. All paper is from our SWIC collections. I used Prima Flowers, the Embellishment Jars, sequins, brads, ribbon, stickles, scrapper's floss, whatever to decorate. I'm hoping everyone likes theirs. The top right has Jesus embossed on it from our Our Savior set along with some phony rhinestones. This will be part of a gift for our church ladies party tonight. The names are embossed using the retired Angel Plate Alphabet as I really like the size. I used decorative snow on the runners.

I still have a couple gifts to make. I finished another last night and plan to post it soon. So, are you working feverishly to get ready for Christmas??

Great idea! I always find it hard to come up with an inexpensive kind of 'bulk' gift. This is a great idea!
