Just Add Ink #683 | Just Choose Two Challenge

  Hello there stamping friends! I hope that you are having a fantastic week and a fabulous day! It's Friday, Yay, and that means it's time for another Just Add Ink Challenge - Just Add Ink #683 | Just Choose Two Challenge.

Today for our Just Choose Two challenge (to choose two items to feature on your project) we are choosing from Trees, Presents and Ornaments. Great elements to get those cretive ideas to finish those Christmas crating projects. As I've not got many stamp sets with these items I thought a little outside the square and made a Christmas Tree Ornament using Stampin' Up! cardstock. 

I've seen these Honeycomb Ornaments everywhere all over Pinterest in all different shapes and sizes but the tree shape was perfect for our Just Choose Two Challenge today.

They are actually quite easy to make. They just take a little time to put together and to wait for the glue to dry between each step. I made it a little easier on myself by scanning the out line for each cut out piece in my Scan n Cut and cut them out from there. Each tree needs 31 cut out pieces so it would take a while cutting them out by hand. By cutting them out on the Scan N Cut they are all cut out exactly the same and all uniform in size.Work smarter not harder I say. When I can work out how to upload the template on here I will and I'll make a tutorial for how to make them too.

I used Stampin' Up! cardstock to make the tree ornaments. I would say that you wouldn't wan't to use anything any thicker. I would have used Stampin' Up! DSP but I didn't have enough of the one design to cut out all the 31 pieces that I needed for each tree. How pretty would that look though with one pattern on one side and a different pattern on the other.

I used Stampin' Up! Linen thread to make the ornament 'hanger'. I cut 6 strands on the linen thread and plaited/braided them together to make a thicker 'twine' for the tree to hang from.

I hope that I've inspired you for our Just Choose Two challenge. There are lots of AMAZING creations from the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team on the JAI Blog. Go and check out to see what 'two' elements they all used this week and then while you are there you can see how you can enter your project. Can't wait to see what 'two' you used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
