Yikes! These things are just like Potato Chips!

I thought I'd make some paper ornaments and gift tags to sell at the studio Open House over the Thanksgiving Weekend. Daniel Smith art supply catalogue had a project page on making water color ornaments. Of course, I got carried away and the next thing I knew I had piles of the ornaments and gift tags. One was prettier than the next, and I just couldn't stop laminating, painting, stamping, stenciling, etc. I made so many I have enough left for the next Open House on the 12th and 13th of December. I may have enough for next year, too, but they were so much fun, sometime between now and next year's Open House, I'll be doing more. I could make bookmarks, sleeves for coffe cups, notebook covers...Yikes. It's a good thing people liked them, because if I can't control myself, there will be no room for me in the studio! It's also a good thing there are no calories involved!
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season.

  1. Gosh, these are pretty, Joanna -- I can see an entire tree filled with them (standing in my living room, too . . .)

  2. How did you make the dot patterns on these? And the even plaid rows?
