Blue Tilda

So this is the end of the weekend and the autumn holiday - back to work tomorrow!

This evening I have a christmas ornament I made for Totally Tilda (blue and silver) and Magnolia Down Under (make your own embellishment). It also fits A spoon full of sugar (relish to embellish) and the ABC challenge (G is for glitter).

I made an accordion flower using regular cardstock and embossed some swirls along one edge. The lace doily was a bit large so I crumbled it slightly (there's a circle of blue cardstock on the backside so it still looks nice) and the silver ribbon is fastened between the doily and the back cardstock). The bow is separate and just glued to the front.

These ornaments will work in the tree, as a bottle decoration or as a fancy tag on a christmas present cause you can write on the back. Very versatile, and it's my tip of the day so I can enter it in Top Tip Tuesday =).

(each fold on the accordion flower is 1/4 " and the cardstock is 12" x 1 and 3/4")
