Rub-on Ornament

I make a little gift each year for the ladies who are part of my stamp clubs. This year it was an ornament using rub-ons, and I am delighted to say that this project meets my top three criteria for gift-giving: quick, cute, and economical! I used the Icicle Rub-ons from the SU! holiday mini catalog, and some sentiment phrases from Chit Chat in the big catalog. The irridescent glass ornaments came from a local craft store, the shred and hanger from the $1 store. Simply cut out the image you want, center on the ornament, and transfer with the popsicle stick included. Remove the cap from the ornament and stuff with shred (a pencil eraser helps control the slippery strands of shred - I used this as my "stuffing tool"), then replace cap. Tie on a perky piece of ribbon (SU! Polka Dot Grosgrain shown here) and add a hanger. Done!

Wishing all the projects on my list were at that stage,

Very pretty, Kathy! I made ornaments this year for Levi's grandmas. They involved glitter & were a bigger hassle then I had bargained for. Maybe next year I will try your way!
