Christmas House Domino Decoration.

Following on from yesterday, be warned, I am now addicted to making these decorations (providing the tape I have ordered is suitable), so I hope you don’t get too bored of seeing them.
Christmas Decorated DominoI covered both sides of a child’s picture domino (7cm x 3.5cms) with a handwriting print paper, putting a small strip of white glitter paper along the bottom for snow. Then I pieced together the house using tiny scraps of paper, doodling the details with a black fine liner pen. I knew the ink would bleed a little when the Aleene’s gel was applied to the completed design, but I thought that it would add to the handmade look of the decoration.

A tiny yellow gem has been used for the door knob and silver stars put in the sky. With a layer of gel applied, they really shouldn’t be handled for at least 24 hours.

Once the gel was set the sides were then covered with an adhesive silver Inkssentials Memory Foil (possibly no longer available in UK)  and smoothed down with a crease mouse.
Christmas House Domino TagI screwed a tiny silver eye hook in the top and bottom of the “domino”. In the top one I used red jewellery wire and a facetted bead to make the hanger and on the bottom added a snowflake charm, however, a key could also be easily added and a perhaps even a bead.
