Ornaments Done Two Ways

   I am going to walk you through on how to turn a clear glass ornament bulb and two switch plate covers into two very different looking ornaments and all it take is just a little time. 

   In little as 30 minutes you could have these two unique ornaments tucked onto a tree or into gift bags for those unexpected last minute gifts you need to give.  
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Heidi Swapp), sequins, twine (Timeless Twine), sticker (SRM Stickers), washi tape (American Crafts), ink (Close to my Heart), snowflake stamp, transparency, glass bulb and switch covers.

For the glass bulb, I just had my cricut cut out two 3" circle that fits into  a 3 1/4" bulb. I glued the circles together and trimmed of an 1/8" off the top. Add your sticker and roll up the paper in a tube so it can be popped into the bulb. Using a pencil or any small stick maneuver the paper until it is opened and flat. Fill with sequins and pop on the top, make sure the prawns on the clip is on either side of the paper. Add a pom-pom made from the twine and add the twine hanger string. 

For the light switch version this takes a little longer but is worth it. 
First start by covering the covers with your pattern paper. Cut out opening. On a transparency sheet stamp snowflakes. Cut sheet a little bigger that opening size.Glue inside covers with hot glue making sure the stamp side is facing in so there is no chance of smudges. Glue covers back to back. Cover seam with washi tape and twine. Glue on decorations. Poke hole into top hole on covers and thread twine through.
