Hello Kitty Ornaments for Hale Anuenue

Happy Hump Day! Whew, I'll be glad when this week is over. Moving office is taking a toll on me.

At our last FCE club meeting we decided to once again decorate a HUGE Christmas tree at Hale Anuenue (nursing home) among other things. We chose an Asian theme. I really scored when I went to Island Scrapbooking to find this die on sale. Cha-ching....I had to get it. One of the girls suggested making an ornament using Japanese characters. So with that in mind, I incorporated both along with origami paper and came up with these. Jenny (Crazy for Paper) will think I'm nuts because I had to cut two pieces for each ornament. Jenn, I made 23 ornaments. It was suppose to be 24 but I messed up on one. Whew, that took a long time. In fact, I think I pulled a muscle on my shoulder cranking out so many Hello Kitty's and had to use Tokuhon...stinky stuff. I'm all better now. LOL.

I'm thinking of a Hello Kitty themed birthday party for my little girl... these would be a great idea for decorations! thanks for sharing.
Hope you are doing well, especially with your leg.

So cute, Karen. Made these last year but adding the Asian theme bumped it up - will need to case this too. TFS.
