 DIY Frosty and Faux Gold Filigree Christmas Ornaments

 Jennifer Snyder here with a jump on Christmas.
Maja Design has some of the worlds best Christmas collections.  I pulled some of these collections out and got to work like a little elf.
I made some tree ornaments by combining Creative Embellishments chipboard frames with  papers  from Maja Design – I Wish collection and Maja Design – Joyous Winter Days collection

If you scroll down, I will show you how I made the ornaments.

 

The chipboard on this first ornament has been transformed into faux gold filigree using gold embossing enamel.

 

These are the papers I used from Maja Design:

I Wish Ephemera
I wish for a Holly Jolly Christmas

Instructions for DIY Ornaments
So how did I make these? 

You’ll need two packages of  Creative Embellishments chipboard – Small Intricate Frames.  The great thing about that is you can now make two ornaments like I did or save the unused frames for other projects.

Step 1.  Emboss or paint both sides of the chipboard.  You’ll need one oval and two matching square frames/diamond frames.

Step 2.  Using the square frames as your sizing guide, cut paper to fit behind the squares and then cut two more pieces a little larger to use as side panels. Once again, I used the Ephemera page from Maja Design – I Wish collection

Step 3.  Glue paper to each of the square chipboard frames.  Then fold the chipboard to form a 45degree angle.

Step 4.  Glue the square chipboard frames to the oval.  You will only be gluing the top and bottom of the square to the oval.  At this point, the squares are not really secure enough and need more support.

Step 5.  Glue the paper squares to the sides of the ornament.  This now

 This is the second ornament I created. 
The chipboard pieces have been embossed with aged ivory embossing enamel.
