CTC251 – Brightly Gleaming DSP


Hello and welcome to a week in CASEing the Catty that I am excited about! This week we are being inspired by the Brightly Gleaming DSP as well as the layouts on page 30. This DSP is so stunning, just so pretty and the foil through it makes it sparkle. My project tonight combines the paper and the idea of ornaments as shown in quite a few of the layouts below….so I guess I didn’t actually CASE a layout…but close enough I say!

A while ago I had pinned this cute ornament on Pinterest, and when I saw this paper I knew I had to give them a try. They are actually really simple to make. You could hide a little treat in, but they will probably get broken trying to get the treat out.

Here is a link to a tutorial I followed over on the Paper Pixies’s blog. I followed her measurements exactly and they turned out perfectly. The shimmery foiled paper makes them look even more gorgeous in real life. You can make 3 ornaments from one piece of 12×12! That’s a lot of tree ornaments from a single pack of paper!

I had a hard time trying to photograph these. I wanted to get the Christmas tree out as I think they would look awesome on the sparkly branches…but this was vetoed by my other half!

I know you won’t be able to resist joining us this week, so click below to visit our facebook page and upload a pic of your project.

  1. What great ornaments, thanks for the link. I’m not sure if I really do have the patience to try making them but you never know. They are lovely Shannon.


  2. First of all, how inconsiderate to not let you put your Christmas tree up for this, lol!! They look so pretty hanging off your non-Christmas tree, though. What a cute idea. I think these would look fab in any DSP but the bling of the copper foil really does make them extra special. 🙂 Siobhan.
