The Eighth Day of Christmas Crafts: Chipboard Ornament

These are so easy to do and make such a great little hostess gift. They can be tied on packages, hung around the neck of a wine bottle, or slipped into an envelope for a little Christmas treat! I don't have a tutorial, but they really are simple. Cover a piece of chipboard with modpodge and press firmly to a piece of scrapbook paper. Using an exacto knife, cut carefully around the edges of the chipboard design. Sand the edges lightly and distress with ink if desired, then repeat on the back. Cover the entire piece with modpodge and glitter. Allow to dry, embellish as needed and add a string for hanging. Choose chipboard with simple designs to allow cutting out to go smoothly. In just a short amount of time you have a super simple and adorable gift for anyone!
