Welcome to the
Epiphany Crafts Design Team
Holiday Ornament Blog Hop 2010!! 
Our lovely Design Team has created some wonderful holiday projects, brimming with inspiration and of course, Epiphany Crafts epoxies, buttons, and tools! Visit each Design Team member's blog to see what inspiring projects they have to share. Leave a comment on each blog. When you reach the last blog, you'll receive the final instructions on how to enter to win a fabulous prize pack filled with Epiphany Crafts goodies, straight from Santa!!
Today I am sharing with you how to create a cute ornament from basic, everyday scrapbooking supplies. PLUS the buttons on the ornament perfectly coordinate with the sticker and paper I used since they are made from the paper with the Epiphany Crafts Round 20 Button Studio!!

Supplies:
Buttons and Button Studio – Epiphany Crafts
Paper, Stickers – October Afternoon
Chipboard Oval – unknown
Glue Gloss, Sparkle Fibers, Smooch Spritz – Clearsnap
Twine – Michael's (silver), hydrangeahippo.etsy.com (blue)
Paint – Delta
Paint the chipboard ornament base with white paint. 
 
After that is dry, spritz it with Smooch Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer to give it a frosty glow.
Center a design from the patterned paper into the Epiphany Crafts Round 20 Button Studio. I love these little starlight mints shapes on this October Afternoon paper!! Add the Round 20 Button on top, press, and remove the finished button. Tie twine in each button in a bow.
Fold a 12″ x 1.5″ strip of candy striped paper accordion style. Adhere the ends together to form a tube. Press the end of the tube together on one side to form a lampshade or teepee. Press the gathered part down to make the ends extend out into a rosette. Adhere to the chipboard oval with Fabri-Tac or another strong adhesive.
Apply Clearsnap's Glue Gloss to the edges of a sticker. Sprinkle Sparkle Fibers on the adhesive and allow to dry. Add the sticker to the center of the rosette.
Add the Epiphany Crafts buttons that you created to the ornament as desired. Punch a hole in the top of the ornament and add a string to hang.
