Christmas Ornaments

>> Monday, December 8, 2014

Hi Everyone,

Today I have something other than a card to share with you. My 8 year old grandson is into Dominoes, not the pizza, though he does love Domino Pizza. He builds elaborate towers and long twisting trains with dominoes and then knocks them down. He doesn't use regular dominoes, he has Bulk ones, they are colorful and lighter weight. I am amazed at what he can do with those dominoes. He is much more patient than his grandma. I could never sit there and build like that only to knock it down! Anyway, in honor of Isaac, I decided to create some Christmas ornaments using regular dominoes.



I stamped the images in Stazon Tuxedo Black ink, colored them Sharpie markers and then added a layer of Glossy Accents. Once the Glossy Accents dried, I added the ribbon using some strong double sided tape. The hardest part for me was tying the bows onto the ribbon at the top of the domino. I couldn't figure out how to use my bow easy for this!! :-(


I started with the snowman and Percy Penguin stamps, but then decided to try and use some of the Christmas Village stamps. I really like how the church turned out, as well as the lamp post.


If you have some old dominoes around the house, you could give this a try! They really are cute.

Thanks for stopping by today.
