I'm sharing the final of the 3 projects I created for our collab Hop, today. I decided to switch things up and try my hand at creating a Shaker Ornament with the Windowrama Snowflake 3D Chipboard Kit.

I started with 4 of the circular ornaments from the kit with the snowflakes punched out and set aside (for a future project with my nephew). I glued 2 of them together with strong liquid glue, making sure to line them up as perfectly as possible & set them aside to dry. Next, I took the other 2 ornament pieces and pounced some color on them, direct from a Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink pad & hit it with my heat gun to dry before adding some white pitgment ink, using the same method, for variation (I keep a cheap white pigment ink pad for this purpose, because there WILL be color transfer.) and again hit them with my heat gun to dry. Make sure you move the gun around a lot so the chipboard doesn't warp. I thought about adding more color, but really liked the distressed, rustic look, and decided to leave it alone. Instead, I grabbed my Dovecraft Candyfloss Glitter Glue and added some strategic lines on the front panel to echo the existing snowflake design. I pulled some of the snowflakes from the Frozen Sparkle Blend and pressed them into the glitter glue at random, for a little bit of extra embellishment & set it aside to dry.

I die cut two round pieces of clear acetate
used 1/8 inch double sided tape and adhered the acetate circles to the back side of my colored panels. I adhered the back panel to my, now dry, center pieces/shaker box and added a generous pinch of Opal Sparkle Blends before adhering the front panel of the ornament, making sure everything lined up.

I threaded a piece of 1/8 inch, light blue ribbon from my stash through the hole in the ornament and tied it, leaving about 3.5 inches of loop. I took piece of darker blue ribbon and tied a bow with long tails around the loop, using wet glue on the knot to keep the bow from sliding or coming undone. Once that dried, I tied two reclaimed bells from my stash at the ends of the tails.
