I must be INSANE.  I’m actually going to attempt to show you 30 papercraft ornaments made from my templates in 30 days!  You MUST understand that I am a teeny-tiny bit lazy, so to commit to something like this is big.  Huge.  But, I have the first 2 days worth of ornaments done, so I guess I should start, eh?  {giggle!}  I’m hoping that my amazing Creative Team members help me out, because they are SO much more creative and artsy than me!

If you want some fun inspiration for creating papercraft ornaments, don’t forget to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out!  AND, be sure to tell your friends all about my little challenge to myself!

Let’s get started . . .

Icicle_web(digital papers from Frosty Fun by Pamela Donnis and Jacque Larsen – available at The Digichick, fibers by CTMH, and “Fun Flock” with a little glitter mixed in)

For this ornament, I used my Icicle Ornament Template Set.  The cool part about this set is that it comes in two sizes, and you can choose to have a fluttery top (as shown), or tuck those flutters to the inside to get a pointy top!  I believe I’m the first template designer to add the flutters to this classic template, so if you decide to keep them, your icicle will look super unique!

For even more fun, put a few little candies inside (maybe Holiday M&Ms), and tie on a name or number tag to begin your advent calendar!  I think I’m going to take this 30 ornaments in 30 days opportunity to create an advent calendar that will be hung on the tree.  Some ornaments will hold candies and some will hold slips of paper with fun family activities written on them.  How exciting!

Would you like to take the challenge to create 30 ornaments in 30 days?  (You can interpret that loosely, as I certainly will!)  If so, link us up to your creations by leaving a comment here on my blog on the days that you post!  Even if you only create ONE ornament in 30 days, you’ll still be having fun!

(Thank you to The Nester, who started a 31 days to a Better Dressed Nest series at the beginning of October, for inspiring me to start my own series!  She was just as freaked out to commit to her series as I am, but she DID it!  I’m impressed.  Hopefully I will finish strong, too!  LOL!)
