Holiday Ornaments

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I created some last-minute ornaments for my tree and for gifts. I am using the 60 degree triangles from the Quilt and Fabric dies! These are a bit deeper than our normal Cheery Lynn Designs Dies and allow for multiple pieces of card stock to be cut at once! This makes creating a project like this where you would need 20 triangles so much quicker and easier.

The notches on the die make it easy to fold up the edges of the triangle for gluing. This is the seam allowance for quilting but it is perfect for gluing to create the ornament.

To create the ornament you need a string of 10 triangles glued together as above left. Additionally you need a top and a bottom of the ornament that is constructed like on the right. I found that it goes together easier if you nip off the very tips of the allowance at the points. I allows the card stock to sit nicely and not have to be bent to allow for the final connections to be made. 

  Cheery Lynn Dies used
60 Degree Triangles (Set of 3 Dies)
Holly Leaves - B183
Poinsettia Strip - B324

I finished my ornaments with a chenille stem ring for hanging the ornament and some shaped poinsettias and holly leaves. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project!
