Quick Quotes Club Q Christmas Tree Ornament

Today I am sharing a Christmas tree ornament I created using the December Ultimate Combo Club Q Kit from Quick Quotes!


The first thing that caught my eye when I opened the kit was a paper mache box that is shaped like a Christmas tree.  There are instructions that show you how to turn it into a lovely gift box, but I decided to go a different direction.  I started by inking the edges of the matching die cut paper with Seafoam PowderPuff Chalking Ink.


I wanted to include a photo in my ornament  so I roughed up the edges with a sanding block and applied more of the Seafoam ink.


I actually set the box aside and just worked with the lid, applying a little adhesive and adding the striped die cut tree.  I flipped the photo over and added some cardboard to the back so that it would "pop" off of the background and adhered it in the center of the ornament. I chose one of the sentiments that came in the kit and cut it apart.


I applied Clay ink to the edges of the sentiment and then I added bits of cardboard to the back of each of the word strips for strength and stability. I love dimension so the word strips were adhered with 3D Zots and "jumbled" around my central image.


I culled through the other supplies and found really cute wooden buttons with a design already imprinted around the edge.  I also found mother of pearl adhesive rhinestone strips and a length of tan  ribbon with stitched detailing.  I used double sided tape all along the outside edge of the box top and then applied the ribbon, leaving enough on the top to create a hanging loop.


I tied some twine through the button and adhered it at the top.


I found these 2 little brush trees in my stash and decided to use them to add even more dimension.  The finishing touch was a strip of the mother of pearl rhinestones across the bottom - kind of like a dusting of snow!

Here's another look at the finished ornament.
