Sled Christmas Ornament from Punches

 Tonight I am at Terri's FABULOUS Technique Class.  Last month she asked the gals to make an ornament using mostly Stampin' Up! products.  I am not participating in the gift exchange but I did decide to make an ornament for Terri.

I used all Word Window punched pieces here!!  Amazing, isn't it?  I wasn't sure I would be able to pull out what was in my head and get it down in 3D.  And the best part!!!  I only made one!  I got it right the first time!  Shocker, I know!!!
I did punch a LOT of these pieces and glued them together.  While they were drying under a heavy object, I punched out the glitter paper.  I punched out 6 pieces of them and in between them was more Craft card stock.  

I used an oval punch to make the glitter pieces look more real.  

To join the pieces I used some scrap pieces of the glitter paper under the 3 top "wood" pieces.  It was a bit flimsy but once the runners were glued on the sled felt more sturdy.  

I took the paper piercer and poked two holes in the top glitter part of the sled.  I'm not sure what that part is called but it's the part you use to guide or steer the sled.  I tied some linen thread through those holes and then I tied the jingle bells on.  I did color the jingle bells with a red Sharpe marker.  It's the only non-Stampin' Up! item I used to make this sled.

The most difficult part was trying to get that snowflake on the top right and I did mess up on it.  I didn't get the tips of the snowflake lined up right.  But you get the idea that it's a snowflake in the middle of the sled.  

I had a lot of fun making it and I'm sure Terri is going to like it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
