Doily Ornaments with PSA Essentials {tutorial}

doily ornaments using PSA Essentials stamp

I’ve told you before how much I LOVE handmade ornaments!
Our tree is full of them, and we love adding more each year.

Today I’d love to show you one more quick, easy & cute ornament
using some more PSA Essentials Peel & Stick Christmas stamps. 
{You can check out my Snoopy ornaments HERE.}

To make these doily ornaments you’ll need the following:

psa supplies

  • PSA Essentials Peel & Stick Stamper Body
  • PSA Essentials black ink
  • PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamp sets {Smirk * Merry Christmas & PSA * Whimsy Trees}
  • Christmas scrapbook paper
  • white card stock
  • scalloped circle punch
  • I inch circle punch
  • Prismacolors {or colored pencils}
  • Elmer’s X-TREME glue stick
  • hot glue gun
  • 1/8 inch hole punch
  • metal Christmas ornament hooks
  • die cut machine & doily die cut set(optional)

Here’s how I made them:

First I stamped the designs on white card stock.
Then I colored my stamps with my Prismacolors.

Then I punched out my stamps with my scalloped paper punch.
At the same time I also punched out a few 1 inch circles, too.
You’ll see why I needed those in just a bit!

I used my die cut machine to cut out some doily dies.
*If you don’t have a die cut machine you can
just cut scrapbook paper into 1 inch by 7 inch strips
& then just fold it like a fan. Either way will work just fine.

Then I will use my glue stick to attach both ends of my paper strips together.
Then I had a circle that looked like this one below.

Using my fingers I brought my doily in until I had a tiny circle in the middle.
I put a dab of hot glue in the middle & then I quickly put one of my circles on top.
Carefully hold it for a just second.  If you try this watch out it’s hot! 
I did this on both sides of my doily just to make sure it would stay put.

Then I hot glued my scalloped circle on the front of my doily.

Then I used a small hole punch to punch a hole in the top.
I added a metal hook, and that is it!  All done.

These would also make super cute gift tags!
You could use ribbon instead of hooks!
