Bible-Page Ornament Kit Now Available

Hi, Friends!
After the fantastic feedback I received about my Bible-Page Wedding Bouquets, I was trying to think up something similar that everyone could enjoy, not only brides-to-be. With Christmas just around the corner, I decided to make the bouquet into a Christmas ornament. It's a smaller size which means a little less assembly time, and I've swapped out stems for a ribbon loop. Plus, the Bible pages make it most appropriate for the season. :)

If you have a Cricut and the Art Philosophy Cartridge, you can easily make this on your own. And it's very budget-friendly! Watch my video in this post for a tutorial on creating a bouquet. Simply omit the "stems" and attach a ribbon loop with a pin and glue. Keep reading for the list of supplies.

If you don't have a Cricut—or pretty Bible paper—you can still make this ornament! I've put together Ornament Kits for you to purchase! And they come with step-by-step instructions. For only $5 you'll get the flowers cut from Bible pages plus a pin/ribbon—that saves you the cost of buying/finding a vintage book and/or purchasing a Cricut and the Art Philosophy Cartridge (although I recommend investing in them!) Scroll down to find out how to purchase.

If you'd like me to do the work for you, you can purchase the fully-assembled ornament in my Etsy shop. SOLD OUT!

The Ornament Kit includes:
  • Ribbon for loop
  • Pin to secure ribbon loop
  • 40 Bible-page Cricut-cut flower spirals (you may have extras)
  • A step-by-step written tutorial with photos on how to put it together (PDF emailed) 
You will need:
  • 2-1/2" foam ball
  • Hot glue
  • Piercing tool (recommended) or long skinny item to wrap flowers on 
  • Pearl-tip pins (optional, you can use hot glue instead) 
  • Glitter gel (optional)
Note: I am not including the foam ball in the kit because of shipping logistics. They are easy to find at your local craft store. The idea behind creating this kit is for those of you without a Cricut and/or Art Philosophy or a vintage Bible to be able to do this fun project.
    ***I will mail your kit within 3 days of receiving payment (often sooner). Be sure your address is correct in Paypal when ordering.
    ***I will email the instructions in a PDF file to the email you provide through Paypal.

    Be prepared to spend a good amount of time rolling flowers, but it's worth it in the end! And it won't take as long as doing a whole bouquet! You can roll flowers while you watch TV, like I do :)
