Festive Flurry Ornaments! Love!

I love this kit!!  I bought them several weeks ago and only got around to putting them together today.  Wish I had started sooner because I would have made a ton more.   The kit comes with supplies to make ten and a instructions VIA video online.  I am not a fan of watching video how to's for some reason, not sure why.  I prefer a series of photos, I think so I don't have to pause or rewind.  Anyway, the video tells you to use a hot glue gun and I am also not a fan of the hot glue gun.  A Fellow demo, Meg, who's last name I don't know, said she put them together with glue dots and dimensionals so I decided to do it her way.  Easy peasy! I will make them all this way.  Here are my step by step photos...

Open the kit, punch out your pieces.  You get ribbon and large rhinestones included :)   Kit makes 10 for $14.95.

Take the large Soft Sky snowflake and fold it in half along the score lines. I folded the longer points as "valleys" and the smaller points as "peeks".

Here it is all folded.

Do the same with the silver glimmer snowflake.

Add a glue dot to the backs of the snowflakes on the points.  I put a glue dot on each of the raised folds.  This means 12 per finished snowflake.  That may be over kill, it would most likely be just fine to use a glue dot on every other. 

Place the Soft Sky snowflake onto the Crumb Cake printed snowflake. 

Now add your Silver Glimmer snowflake.

Now make a stack of dimensionals, sticking them together.  I stacked 5, 4 might be good to, depends on how ruffled your snowflakes are.

Stick the dimensionals into the center of the snowflake.

Add the printed Soft Sky snowflake to the center and stick on the rhinestone.  Yea!  Pretty!

Glue your ribbon to the back and use the Crumb Cake circle to cover the ends.  Done!! 

These would be great gift toppers, ornaments, bag decorations! String them together for a garland.  Add them to a wreath!  So Pretty.

And lookie!  It's already on my tree next to last years Ornament!

Last years Ornament uses some products no longer in the catalog but still available online.   The stamps can be found in the "stamps" section under "online only stamps".  They are called "Ornament Keepsakes".

 The ornament framelits match the stamps and are also online only.  I had a hard time finding them online so I ended up doing a search.  Here is the item number so you don't have to search for them.  item # 127816  $24.95

matching stamp set comes in wood mount and clear.  item # for clear is #128051  $24.95.  
Wood mount is # 128048  $34.95.

And, Bonus, that snowflake die I used in the middle is part of the Clearance Rack Blitz! 
Snow Flurry Bigz Die #127813  $13.19!  I checked online to make sure they were still available as clearance rack stuff goes fast and as on today at 1:00 they are. 

Stamper Campers, we will be making the new Snowflake kit on Saturday! If you are ordering anything online ahead of stamp camp, this weeks stamp camp hostess code is #6PAJG9A3.
