CUTE CHRISTMAS BAUBLES {kaisercraft & merly impressions}

hello crafty peeps!

today i would like to share my first project for DECEMBER for MERLY IMPRESSIONS' blog and it had to be CHRISTMAS themes of course. 
this month i have the pleasure to work with the most adorable KAISERCRAFT collection PEEK-A-BOO {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS'  online store}. this collection is perfect for both little boys and little girls and combining it with any of the BEYOND THE PAGE MDF products form KAISERCRAFT, you can create the perfect gift for  grandparents and aunties!

there is also a short tutorial on how i created them in this post!


decorative die - SNOWFLAKES
decorative die - GEO TAGS

spellbinders - nestabilities, LABELS 1
DISTRESS STICKLES - broken china
STICKLES dry glitter - THISTLE
white poinsettia flowers
seambinding ribbon - pink and white

here are some close ups of my project with a short TUTORIAL on how i did it:

STEP 1: cover the visible areas of the  MDF BAUBLE DECORATIONS with KAISERCOLOUR - white paint and allow them to dry naturally. don't forget the small side edges!

STEP 2: once the paint is dry, cover the the front of the  BAUBLES with blue and pink STICKLES -glitter glue or dry glitter. use your fingers to smudge the glitter on the baubles for even coverage.

STEP 3: measure the back side of the baubles and cut pieces of pattern paper and pictures to fit it. ink the edge of the pattern paper shapes.

STEP 4: cut out the sentiments from the paper pad and die cut different embellishments using cardstock and KAISERCRAFT dies. 

STEP 5: assemble everything together using double sided tape and mounting foam tape as shown on the picture. add rhinestones to decorate the die-cuts.

STEP 6: add the ribbon bow and a small white flower. to create the hanger for the bauble, use pink and blue hemp cord.

 i hope i managed to inspire you today!

i'm off to hang these cuties on our CHRISTMAS tree!

hugs 'n smiles,
