holiday ornaments

I have been wanting to use my new build-a-brads for a while now but didn't know what I wanted to do with them...I can't use them on just anything...I am having a hoarding problem with these little things! I didn't want to waste any of them! So it occurred to me to try using them as ornaments! I have the stamp set Hung Up on the Holidays on my next order, but I was getting impatient waiting for it....so I thought why not make my own! Instead of using my 1/2 inch circle punch for the brad I used a few stickers from my Winter Bright Scrap Kit, they fit perfectly! I drew my own string and bows {which are not quite they way I would like them....but I wasn't in the mood to redo the whole card for a bow imperfection!} :) The sentiment is from Laughter & Merriment from Hero Arts.
Thanks for coming by.....AND a BIG HUGE THANK YOU to all of you for all the wonderful comments you leave....ya'll are so sweet! It makes my day to see so many nice things!! :)

OMG! This is absolutely fantastic! I have been staring at my Build a Brads and trying to figure out what to do with them. You are my hero today! And I thought that you had stamped the bows. I'd have never known they were hand drawn. perfect!
