Peace Christmas Bulb

Another really easy ornament to make. This one is made from a 3 1/2 inch round coaster. I used Mod Podge to the coaster and placed my designer paper over that, let dry and trimmed around. Did the same on the other side. This stuff makes it stick real good. Next stamp your image or images on whisper white card stock and and mount to matching card stock, in this case it was real red. I made mine a little longer than needed so I could trim them once glued on. Glue one side at a time and turn and trim from the other side so you get it even. Do the other side the same, trying to match up on the edges.

Then I punch out a tab punch and folded in half, used my crop-a-dile and punched holes for eyelets for the bulb holder. I did on all sides (4) total. Then set my eyelets and then did another hole in the center top and set that eyelet, glued on top of my ornament and then put fishing line through to hang with. That's it, it is that simple. And they turn out so cute! Next one I think I will run the tab punch through the crimper instead of doing the eyelets, think it will make it look more real.
Hope you enjoyed today's ornament.
