These ornaments are double layered with the same designs stamped and embossed on both pieces and then glued back-to-back for strength. The buttons have been stitched on through all layers so they’re there to stay. I used my favorite gold embossing powder from Ranger as it has the unique ability to cure to a hammered gold appearance instead of the usual smooth and shiny look. It gives an intricate and handmade feel to projects and I really love the results.

For some added fun, I decided to package the ornaments in their own box. Papertrey Ink has made this easy by coming up with the perfect die for this. They even have a very useful video here to give you the best tips on putting it together.
