Angel Ornament

Welcome to Scrapbook Blessings Blog. Barbara here with an ornament that I learned how to make at my local scrapbook store called The Little Blue House.

My Tip- make an ornament for each person in your family and record on the back or bottom who made it and for whom it was made as well as the year. You will soon have a tree full of memories. And your kids will have ornaments to take with them for their own tree when they grow up and move out.

Today I made an angel ornament.

List of supplies
window shutter for a doll house for the body
1 and one half inch wooden circles (you need 2)
adhesive foil tape
2 fancy ornament hangers
popcicle sticks
bottle cap
white acrylic paint
Art Anthology Sorbet Dimensional paint- white with glitter
piece of chipboard 3/8 inch by 2 inches
Ribbons and other assorted trims
450 quick dry adhesive
pop dots

First pick out popsicle sticks for your wings adjusting the length of the wings to be a little shorter than the one above it by cutting the stick in the middle and trim a little bit off the length from the center cut you made. Trim foil tape to fit each wing.
run the foil tape through your embossing machine in your favorite folder. Attach the foil tape to the sticks after pealing off the backing of the strips. Paint with a thin coat of white acrylic paint and let dry completely, then gently sand to let the silver embossing show up.
attach to the back of the shutter. Paint the shutter with white acrylic paint. Let dry. Then paint shutter with the Art Anthology glitter paint and let dry. 
Paint each of the wooden circles with the white acrylic paint and let dry.
Adhere the bottle cap to the front of one of the wooden circles. 
Fill the bottle cap with a circle punched from neutral patterned paper and adhere.
Adhere the two wooden circles back to back with the piece of chipboard and some ribbon to act as a hanger for your ornament inbetween the wooden circles. Let dry completely.
Then, using the chipboard piece that is hanging out the bottom side of the angel head, adhere to the back of the shutter. Let dry completely.
Now you are ready to decorate your angel any way you like. Try different trims and different colors to get the look you like.

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
