Altered Sled Ornament


 This past weekend at my annual Holiday Hoopla crop we had a handmade ornament exchange, this altered sled was my offering! I love the way it turned out, and the hardest part was painting the sled because the dimensional flower was created with my Cricut Imagine!!!!


So let me give you the rundown so you can make them for yourself, or if you are looking for a gift to make, these would be gorgeous as a package tie...kind of a gift with a gift!!!  The sled was picked up at Michael's, then painted red and brown with craft paint.

To create the flower with Snow Angel Imagine art cartridge and the Cricut Imagine, print and cut the flower at 2.7" and cut the layers separately at 2.7" on white card stock. Ink edges with red and green ink, and curl with a bone folder. Layer with foam tape, and add a few little micro beads with a glue dot in the flower center. Add seam binding {Stampin' Up!} in a big crinkly bow and cut label with cuttlebug, stamp sentiment, adhere to sled, and you are ready to decorate!!!

Happy creating!!!

As one of the few lucky people who got one of these adorable sleds at the "Holiday Hoopla" all I can say is "WOW" and "Thanks" for a fun weekend Shantaie and I can't wait to hang this on my tree... I have a couple of pics from the crop I will share if I can figure out how to get them on here :>)
