Embroidery Hoop Snow Globe Shaker Ornaments

Every year I look forward to adding new, handmade ornaments to our Christmas tree.  As I dug through a pile of craft supplies in my craft room, I ran across a few 3" and 4" embroidery hoops.  They are the perfect size for Christmas ornaments.  Inspired by sequin shaker cards, I thought it would be fun to create embroidery hoop snow globe shaker ornaments.  It was fun and easy, and I couldn't be any happier with the results!

Modern Paper Leaf Embroidery Hoop Wreath

A few months ago I was asked by Susan, the Creative Editor at Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine, to create a project for the Inspired By column for the March 2015 issue.  As most of you already know, the February 2015 issue will be the last issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine, so my Inspired By project missed the cut by one month. 

But never fear.  Loads of inspiration are still coming your way!  Today, Susan is sharing the last of the Inspired By projects over on the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking blog so I thought it would be a great time to share a tutorial on how to make a modern paper leaf embroidery hoop wreath.
