Christmas in July with Silhouette Ornament Kit

Christmas in July is always fun — especially this year — as we are looking forward to a more festive time!!  And maybe some of you are spending more time at home & have more time to do some Christmas crafting!

Silhouette America sent me one of their Holiday Ornament kits, and I am participating in an ornament competition with other Silhouette Elite bloggers!    The  good news for you is that during the Christmas in July sale,  these kits are 50% off–with the code CHRISTMASINJULY at check out.   The Holiday Ornament Kit box includes all of the following items:

  • 6 clear plastic ornaments (100 mm size)
  • 6 sheets cardstock (8.5 in. x 11 in.)
  • 6 ornament hooks
  • Exclusive download card redeemable on the Silhouette Design Store for 10 pre-selected layered ornament designs

We were all challenged to create an assigned design (mine is the Stocking Bauble) – with our own take on it!   Instead of card stock, I decided that I wanted to create with Glitter HTV!    The designs come into Silhouette Studio in multiple parts.

I cut all of the pieces out of Glitter HTV, using the default settings in Silhouette Studio.   I also cut the white circle & green ring from white cardstock to be the base for the ornament.   Setting the heat press at 305 degrees, I pressed the white glitter HTV to the cardstock – -and then began layering the fireplace, stockings, greenery & scalloped ring onto one another.  I just did a quick press of about 5 seconds each time — always using a Teflon press sheet.   Normally, I wouldn’t layer glitter HTV on top of another layer, but for an ornament I felt like it would be just fine!

Then I pressed the green ring onto the cardstock ring.  I wanted the ornament to have a little dimension (plus the HTV layers were getting thick) and – so I used sticky foam dots on the back of this ring – -and then layered it all together.

Then – when it was all assembled — into the bauble it went!!!   So much fun & a new take on the Holiday Ornament Kit!

Take advantage of the savings at Silhouette America – now through July 31 – there are tremendous savings on the Holiday Ornament Kit, Advent Calendar, machine bundles, mats, specialty media and more!!!   And for even more savings, head on over to the Silhouette Design Store – where all Christmas, Winter & Hanukkah designs are 50% off!
