Christmas Ornament by Samantha Taylor
Supplies Used - Patterned Paper and stickers: Echo Park (Season's Greetings Collection Pack); Stamp: Lawn Fawn (Winter Bunny); Ink: Memento Black; Markers: Copic; Felt: Stamp School; Bottle Cap: Maya Road 4"; Twine: May Arts; Glitter: Elizabeth Craft Glitter Ritz Warm Highlight; Button: Bo Bunny (Blitzen)

I've had this picture in my mind this year of making some Christmas ornaments from those jumbo Maya Road bottle caps. When I saw this add-on sketch I knew I could combine it with that ornament idea and my felt scraps to create something pretty cute. It's a little hard to photograph, so I also have to point out that the scarf on the bunny is covered in ultra fine glitter (the kind that doesn't shed when little hands want to touch it :)

Variation 1: I shrunk the tree down to 2" x 3 1/4"


Variation 2: I used felt instead of paper to create the leaves of the tree. This is a great project add-on for scraps of any kind, be it felt, fabric, paper, or ribbon.
