Christmas by the Sea Bauble by Amanda Baldwin

Welcome Couture Creations Fans, 
or should I say, 
Season's Greetings!
as we continue with our Christmas in July theme!
Amanda here with you today, 
sharing my exquisite, Christmas By-the-Sea, glass bauble decoration.

Isn't this just delightful?!! 
It's also super easy to make (lazy crafter alert!) that you'll make a dozen in next to no time!

You will need one (or more) of these open glass baubles - 
I got mine from one of those thrifty $2 gift stores, but florists also sell them. 

1. Attach natural raffia & ribbon, as shown above.

2. Using Kraft cardstock, cut the following two dies from the Merry Little Christmas Collection;

3. Glue into position as shown above 
(doesn't that tree make excellent foilage? So versatile!)

4. Fill your bauble with 1/3 sand, arrange a few ornate shells on top.
For finishing touches add a couple of berries (or dried rose buds) & some smaller shells. 
That completes this simple, but stunning, Christmas-By-the-Sea Ornament.

Hope you feel inspired to give this little project a go!

Happy Christmas in July!!!
