Make a guinea pig ornament using cute mix and match stamps and dies from Maker’s Movement! This is a sponsored post but all ideas and opinions are my own.
We love our two guinea pigs, so when I saw the Buildable Buddies stamp and die set from Maker’s Movement I immediately saw a guinea pig. This versatile set is perfect for making lots of cute critters, from reindeer to penguins and so much more! I like that this one set gives me so many options for mixing and matching. I can’t wait to make more ornaments with this set. Here’s how I made the guinea pig ornament.
Supplies Used for this Guinea Pig Ornament DIY
- Buildable Buddies Winter Stamp Set
- Buildable Buddies Winter Die Set
- White Cardstock
- Archival Ink
- Craft Snow
- Large DIY Clear Disc Ornament
- Xyron Creative Station Lite
- Silver or clear cord
Stamp the desired elements. Since my ornament is two sided, I stamped doubles of each to make a front and back. To make the reverse side of the hat I had to stamp on the back of the page, then trace the design on the front and color it.
Color in the pieces as desired using markers. The little carrot is actually for a snowman’s nose but since our piggies love carrots, I added some green to the end to make a carrot for snacking!
Find the corresponding dies for each element.
I die cut the colored pieces using my Crossover II die cutting machine.
I rolled the die cut pieces through my Xyron Creative Station Lite. I used the permanent adhesive refill to turn all the pieces into stickers.
This is so much less messy than using liquid glue!
Place the front of the body face down on the work surface, and stick a 6 inch piece of silver cord right down the middle.
Attach the back of the piggy over the cord. Now the string is sandwiched between the two thanks to the Xyron adhesive.
Peel and stick the other elements onto the piggy.
Add some craft snow to the back of the open ornament. Add the guinea pig figure and put the top on.
Cut the excess cord off. The cord will hold the figure in place so kids can shake it and watch it snow on their little ornament friend.
Isn’t he sweet? You can make lots of different characters to fill your ornaments with. Have fun crafting and creating!
