Be Merry All-Inclusive Kit


SPOILER ALERT:  I like to surprise my Stamp Club Members each month with a free gift and this month they will each receive one of these festive rosette ornaments I made using the Be Merry Kit from Stampin’ Up!  The rosettes are 4″ in diameter and would look great hanging on a tree or wreath but would also make gorgeous package toppers in place of a bow.

These were so much fun to put together because most of the work was done for me and the only thing I needed to add was adhesive.  Everything was pre-cut, pre-scored and folded.  The instructional video from Stampin’ Up! below shows using a glue-gun to assemble the ornaments but I didn’t want to go to the bother and the ornaments went together perfectly using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Be Merry Kit can be assembled in just a couple hours but the rosettes look like you spent hours.  Wouldn’t it be nice to impress your family and friends with something you made especially for them during the holidays?  Place one on top of a wrapped plate of handmade (or store bought) goodies for your neighbors. Tie one around a bottle of sparkling cider or wine for the perfect hostess gift.  Adhere a gift card to the back of the ornament for the teachers in your life.  I purchased two kits because the uses are endless.  Grab a kit or two for yourself by clicking on the link below.
