Elegant Gifted Ornament

Gift Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using A Gilded Life Crowned Medallion Bronze by Spellbinders - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning crafters!  I wanted to pop in today with one of the two last  gifts made for my recent guest.  Since we are slowly but surely approaching the season, I thought it only fitting that she have a Christmas Ornament from my house to hers.  It’s an ornament made by folding ribbon and I topped it with A Gilded Life Crowned Medallion Bronze by Spellbinders.  It’s simply glued on with Fabritac and then a cameo glued on top of the medallion – I used E6000 to secure it but was so tempted to use my trusty hot glue gun.

Since the medallion has a ring, it was easy to thread some silk ribbon through the hole for hanging.  I also put a petite bow on the crown for a totally feminine ornament.  The ornament is slightly larger than the palm of my hand and hopefully won’t get lost amid all the beauties on her tree.

I adore simple gifts that can be made in a sitting. I was so thankful to get these done in time for her visit.  This seemed unique because of the dimension which you can see below.  It’s a balanced ornament but would be just as lovely laying on a table – the back is flat.  Stay tuned, I’m playing around with this type of project so that I know all the ins and outs – when I have it down pat, I’ll share.

    Oh Becca, this is absolutely stunning! I love it and would like to try making one. Are you going to share how you did the ribbon? Also, is the wreath made out of metal? Guess I should check out the link to Spellbinders. Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful ornament.

    With your incredible talent, why on earth would you need to take a class? You could teach the socks off of any teacher!!ReplyCancel

    This is lovely. I might use it for a stunning broach on a coat or suit jacket. Certainly would be a statement piece!

    Ah, that is beautiful, Becca! I bet it has a place of honor on her tree – it truly is lovely! I’d put that in one of the single hook ornament hangers on a mantel or shelf, counter – something like that, to really show it off. Just gorgeous! THanks for sharing!

    That is a lovely ornament, Becca. I love the folded ribbon effect – it’s so elegant!
    I’m wondering what the back of the ornament looks like. Is it as pretty as the front?
    I do have a comment about the E6000. I have glued many cabochons to fabric, ultrasuede, etc., and this is the best product for the job – it will last much longer. Good choice!ReplyCancel

  • Marcie SmithOctober 1, 2015 - 4:25 pm

    You are such an amazing crafter Becca. This is stunning!!!!!! I am sure this will be one of your sister’s favorite ornaments that she can cherish year after year. It is a beauty made even more special because it came from you!

    This is an absolutely gorgeous ornament, Becca. Love the choice of ribbon! White & gold are so elegant. Your friend is lucky to have you as a friend. Lol
    I love E6000 glue, even though it has an extended drying time. Works very well when my glue gun has failed me. It is great stuff for out here in the summer desert where it can get so hot, you don’t need the gun…..only the glue! LolReplyCancel
