Southwestern Bison Ornament

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a project to share with you using one of the newest dies from the November Release. If you use the code lisa15, you will get 15% off your regular price Die-Versions order.


Isn't this Southwestern Bison die awesome?! I cut it out in vinyl and it cut perfectly. The gorgeous ribbon is Christmas Red from the DL.ART Traditional Christmas bundle. The button is a Die-Versions Wee Petites Button die.


To create the sparkly ornament, I poured about a tablespoon of Future floor polish into the ornament and rolled it around until it coated all of the inside, then discarded the extra liquid. Then I poured in glitter and rolled it around until it covered the inside surface, tapping out any extra. I let it dry before I added the topper back on. I love the look of these sparkly ornaments so you will probably see more projects like this in the next few weeks ;)


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. Little Scrap Pieces Show It Off Saturday - A/G
2. Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Christmas Joy

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

  4. Wow, this is just gorgeous Lisa!! I love that bison die, not a traditional Christmas image but yet it looks completely natural! Wonderful burst of colour with that big loopy bow and the little button with the baker's twine is just a brilliant little embellie!! This will look amazing an any tree! hugs :)

  46. Now that is really neat. This would be a perfect gift for a guy on a Christmas list. Could make several of them as a gift. How awesome. Fabulous idea, Lisa!

  47. Lisa, your ornament is so unique and wonderful! Did you say floor cleaner? I'm not sure if I'm reading that right - forgive me! I'm so intriqued! Just shows how little I know in this craft world and I thought I knew a few hacks - LOL! This is a vision and such a thoughtfully crafted gift, too! I'm envision mine with sparkly blues and greens and a seahorse, dolphin, shells! Ohhhh! Have a blessed day, sweet friend!
