So I’m joining up with my design team pals from My Favorite Things today for this month’s Creative Challenge. This month’s challenge is all about felt.
I’ve been on a card binge for awhile so decided to live on the edge and make something a little out of my norm this time. What? What, you ask? Well, friend. I made a trio of Christmas ornaments.
To make each snowflake unique, I added a little hand-stitching. I pierced holes through the base and then brought floss through the holes. Had I not pierced holes first, I definitely would have crinkled up my ornaments by trying to force the needle through the paper.
And even though I didn’t use a lot of materials on these ornaments, you’ll notice they have quite a bit of layers to them.
By the way, to keep things looking professional, I die-cut another rectangle to place on the back of the ornaments after I added gold thread hangers to them. This will give you a hint of what they look like from the backside.
I think it also helps make them more sturdy so I’ll be able to use these on my tree again and again rather than just a year or two.
So that’s what I have for you today.
Here’s a list of MFT supplies I used to make my ornaments:
- Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics
- Bubblegum felt
- Pinking Edge Square STAX Die-namics
- Stitched Square STAX Die-namics

Thanks, as always, for stopping by guys! It’s always a thrill when you do.
