La-La Land Crafts- Jolly Elves Shaker Ornament Tutorial

Hello Everyone! Mindy here with you today to show you how to create these easy and fun Shaker Ornaments using the super Adorable New Jolly Elves Clear Stamps from La-La Land Crafts. 

Here is what you will need...

Bakers Twine
Foam Tape
Double Sided Tape
Precision Tip Glue
Distress Inks in: Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch
Various White, and Silver Sequins
White Watercolor Paper
White Glitter Cardstock
Blending Sponges
Clear Acetate for shaker window

Step 1: First Cut 2 of the largest Pierced Scalloped Circles from plain white watercolor paper. Also Cut 1 of the second largest Stitched Nested Circles from white glitter cardstock. Next center the second largest Stitched Nested Circles die in the middle of one of your Pierced Scalloped Circles (adhere the die with washi tape so that it does not shift during cutting.) and run it through your die cut machine. Then position the wavy Double Stitched Hill Border on the bottom of the white glitter cardstock Stitched Nested Circle, adhere with washi tape, and then run through your die cut machine.

Step 2: Position the Large Pierced Scalloped Circle frame you just created over the second full Pierced Scalloped Circle and use a pencil to lightly trace around the inside edge of the frame. Next remove the top frame and line up the second largest Stitched Nested Circle die to the traced line edge and run through you die cut machine just like we did for the first one to create 2 perfectly aligned scalloped frames. Then Cut 2 of the largest Stitched Nested Circles from clear acetate for your shaker windows. Also Cut 1 of the large Stitched Tags topper from plain white watercolor paper.

Step 3: Cut 2 of the largest Stitched Nested Circles from plain white watercolor paper. Next align the second largest Stitched Nested Circle into the center of the large Stitched Nested Circles you just cut. Adhere the die with washi tape, and run it through your machine to create a total of 2 frames.

Step 4: Stamp the elves from the Jolly Elves Clear Stamps onto 110 lb. plain white cardstock, color with your choice of medium, and fussy cut them out.

Copic markers used:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, RV21, RV000
Red: R59, R27, R35, R22, R20, 0
Green: G17, G05, YG09, YG06, YG11, 0
White: C5, C3, C1

Step 5: Also Cut the following extra embellishments from plain white watercolor paper as from these dies: Cut 1 Christmas Lights, Cut 3 candy canes and Cut 1 round peppermint candy from the Gingerbread House Add On. You should now have all the pieces cut as shown in the photo above.

Step 6: Glue the 2 Acetate Circles into the center of the 2 Pierced Scalloped Circle frames.

Step 7: Add one small rectangle of foam tape to the top of the ornament on the inside. Next fold the tag topper in half and glue it together for extra strength. Then press the folded tag topper onto the foam rectangle causing it to stick, you will then cut another foam tape rectangle the exact same size and place it right ontop of the first rectangle, sandwiching the tag topper between them. Next apply 2 layers of foam tape the rest of the way around the Pierced Scalloped Circle frame. (Be sure to not leave any small gaps otherwise the shaker contents could fall out.) You will then fill your shaker with your sequins of choice.

Step 8: Remove the foam tape protective lining, position the second Pierced Scalloped Circle frame over the top of the shaker window, and then press together to seal your shaker. Next add Bakers Twine to the top of your ornament, and tie it off.

Step 9: Blend Distress Ink in Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch onto the top half of each Large Stitched Nested Circle frame. (2 per ornament.)

Step 10: Glue the large blue and white Stitched Nested Circle frames to the front and back of each ornament.

Step 11: Color in the details of the die cuts with your choice of coloring medium. Next cut the Christmas Lights in half to use on both ornaments.

 Step 12: Attach the elves and round peppermint candies with foam tape for some added dimension. Then glue the glitter snow hills that you cut with the Double Stitched Hills Border to the bottom center of each ornament. Next glue the candy canes, and Christmas lights to the front of the ornaments as pictured below.

These Jolly Elves Ornaments are so fun and easy to make, and are the perfect addition to your tree, or can be used as a gift, or make the cutest gift toppers too!
