Little pieces of chipboard, 40-some die cuts, foam brushes, paint bottles, Stickles, tiny brads, ribbon, twine...all of these things have taken over my house, in spite of my best efforts to contain them.
Fortunately, the end result of this ginormous mess is a very fun set of Cosmo Cricket ornaments. Pictured here are only a few of the set...the rest I have yet to complete. They tend to be smaller and would be perfect additions to larger ornaments, package tie-ons, embellishments for cards or layouts, or decorations for a tabletop tree.
I'm making these ornaments for a class I'll be teaching a couple of times this fall. We may complete 7-10 ornaments in class, depending on how fast we are. They could not be more fun to make. I like the fact that the pieces can be combined in any way...there are no directions included from the manufacturer, so you're only limited by your imagination.
So here's to an early start on the holiday season. Pure fun.
