This is another super easy ornament. I feel like I say that a lot. There are actually 2 layers of easy to this. Super-easy and just easy.
Super easy version: buy some fancy gift tags. Take them out of the package. Hang on the tree.
I didn’t do this so I don’t have any pics for you.
Less easy version: Make fancy hanging tags. Hang on tree.
I used my Slice cutter to make these. I chose 3 different shapes and cut them out of 3 different card stocks. Then I cut the same shapes out of 7 coordinating Christmas papers. I glued the card stock to the paper with some elmers.
Then using the Slice I cut a bunch of Christmas shapes and words out of solid card stock and metallic vinyl. Those got glued to the front. Finally I edged the tags with a metallic gold ink pad and added a twine loop.
We’ve got an ‘A’ for Alecia, a ‘M’ for Mike, a ‘R’ for Rita the kitty and another ‘A’ for…
Alfred! Our new puppy! We don’t even have him yet but he will be home by Christmas. He is a full blood golden retriever. He is from the first litter of the 3rd generation of Mike’s family’s goldens. Several of his aunts and uncles are currently in training for seeing eye dogs.
Let me just say, I fully support rescue animals. Rita is a rescue from CNY Cat Coalition. We knew we wanted a dog and did consider a rescue. Due to several factors we decided it was best for us to get a puppy from Mikes mother.
A. We know Alfie’s mother, grandmother and several aunts and uncles. They all have the personalitly we wanted.
B. We have a lot of ‘prey’ type animals running around. We need a dog that won’t kill or torment the chickens, ducks, alpacas and cows. I’d hate to bring home a rescue, lose some of our animals and then have to take it back.
C. Rita hates other animals that are bigger than her. She likes our bunny and chinchillas. She has even chilled with turkey poults. We really hope that if we bring Alfie home when he is still shorter (he already weighs more) she won’t notice when he out grows her. And yes, my cat is that dumb.
