Welcome to Day 2 Sneak Peeks!! I can't stand it I love this release so much. If you know me at all you know I'm a font freak and die girl from way back. Well, a die set in one of my fave fonts almost put me over the edge. ROFL!! I made my own chipboard letters and came up with this ornament for my mom. Her favorite color is blue. 


Getting started, you must first empty the box of your favorite snack crackers. Mine happens to be these Club Minis. I would be embarrassed to tell you how many of these boxes I have in my cardboard stash, so I won't tell you. I looooove these crackers. So there's a lot of boxes. 


Regardless what your favorite snack cracker or cereal might be, cut two sets of letters from the empty box; one set with the inside of the box as the right side, and one set with the outside of the box as the right side; as well as one set from your choice of paper. I used Snowfall, by BoBunny. 


Adhere the two cardboard sets together so that the kraft color side/the inside is showing on front and back of the letters. 


Then add the pretty ones on top! You now have the most awesome chipboard in the universe. At least, in my opinion. ;)

Here's how it looks, pre-prettied up, on the label which adorns the front of the ornament.

Adhere to the star using hot glue. Then add a touch of bling and a few snowflakes. Add some sparkle and done!

Thanks for coming by today. I can't say enough how much I love this release, and I just know you will too. The dies and fonts are just superb - perfect for any type of project!!!

    1. Thank you!! The alphabet does come in one piece, but is easily separated. You can use wire snips like I did {be sure to cut close to the edges so you don't have any sharp points left} or just bend them apart, whatever works easier for you. :) You're going to love them!!!
