Santa's Village Christmas Ornaments by Tracee Provis
What better way to decorate for Christmas than something you have created yourself. I love to create scenes and was really excited to see the cute elements that adorn the Elf Magic collection. I recycled some old tuna fish cans that made great bases for my ornaments, and finished them off with some paper bows and ribbon.
To start I sprayed my tin with some white auto paint, glittered one of the small doilies and cut out the middle to make a pretty edge for my tins. I fussy cut lots of different elements from the papers and used hot glue to adhere in the tin. A little tip - I needed to put some hot glue that would show at the front of my elements, to stop it from being a plain old blob I just sprinkled a little glitter on it before it dried and it looks like sparkly snow.
I cut some circles to fit the tin and then adhered most of the elements to it before gluing inside. I used some double dot cardstock to create the Elf factory building, how cute is the little one peeking out from behind the roof ? I cut some tiny bows to stick on the presents and then cut a bigger version that is attached to the top of the tin with the ribbon.
The set wouldn't be complete without the stockings being hung, again I used double dot to create the bed frame and the window behind has acetate to give the impression of looking out at Santa's sleigh flying through the sky.

Naughty or Nice Christmas Ornament by Agnieszka Bellaidea
The idea about making decorations for Christmas tree is something we all remember from kindergarten. This time I wanted to show you how fun can it be to do it in a very simple way. Cute elements from Elf Magic are great for using on old frames, wooden stars or even old decorations, just to give them a lift. For my first project I used a plastic frame and this cute Elf. The second one was created with paper and cut out elements from Elf Magic.

Cut out 6 -10 shapes from any Bo Bunny paper.
Fold all parts in half.
Glue all parts together, I used a tape for it.
Your ornament is ready for decorations. Using stickers, chipboards or cut images from Elf Magic papers like I did makes the process nice and easy. Go for it! Or relax and read your book, I am on my way to created new page with another stunning Winter collection from Bo Bunny.

I have made a couple of layouts with this gorgeous collection with a Christmas theme, but I thought it would be fun to show that you can actually use these versatile papers photos other than just Christmas photos. Here I used a picture of that really fantastic bridge in San Francisco!
I have used some cute flowers and I put brads in the centre. I outlined the stars and the alphabet stickers to make them pop.
