Visions of Sugarplums - Day Five

Wow!  It's already the last day of Visions of Sugarplums!   I want to shout out a big THANK YOU to Regina, Beatriz, and Cassie for sponsoring us with wonderful giveaways this week.  You are all so generous and so very sweet!

First up are some tiny ornaments that would be darling on a little tiny tree.   I whipped these up in no time, but in spite of that I think they are darling! 

 I used 1 1/2" glass domes (bought on etsy) and a sheet of digital images from Made by Janet.  I printed the circles at 1 1/2" and then cut them with a circle die.  Put a thin coat of Diamond Glaze on the glass and pressed the circle to it.   The hanger needs to go on now.  I taped and glued red jute to the back and covered it with a stamped manila circle. 

All that's needed to finish them off is a little ribbon, button, and twine. 

So sweet!


How about another really quick idea, perfect as a stocking stuffer for all the sweet girls in your life?   Peppermint lip gloss!   I don't really have a recipe, but here's how I made it:   First scoop out a heaping spoonful of petroleum jelly and warm it up in the microwave for one minute.  Add a couple of drops of peppermint extract and one drop of red food coloring.  Mix.  Wash your tin and fill it up. That's it and it tastes lovely and has a pretty shine.   A simple stamped image finishes it off. 

I think wrapping it with a bow and putting in a stocking is perfect!

Cassie hosted our giveaway yesterday.  The winner of a Pink Paislee Snow Day kit is:

  1. Love your little ornaments. Especially the idea of the stamped back to finish them off. Looks nice when they are finished like that. They are really cute. I wouldn't have thought to glaze over the glass either.
    I really liked the idea of the lipgloss. So easy and not so many additives. Feel better making that for my Grand-daughters then buying the little girls ones from the store that have 20 ingredients that I can't even pronounce. So thanks very much for the ideas.

  14. These little ornaments are darling!! I need some of these! I am creating a vintage garland, and these would be perfect. I clicked on the place for the images, and it comes up as an error. Would love to make some of these. Do you sell them?
