Today is the 7th day of the Twelve Days of Christmas Crafts! I created this ornament for an exchange I did with my Spark Sisters from Spark the Event. Create these for yourself, tie to a gift as a special “tag”, or create a box of them to give to newlyweds.
Here's how I made it:
Apply Design Adhesives from Clearsnap to the back of a glass ornament. I like these ones from Hobby Lobby because they are like a flattened glass ball, with a flatter surface on front and back but still rounded. A four pack was about $5.
Sprinkle the Design Adhesives with glitter. I used my favorite Clearsnap Glitter in Cinnamon Spice. If you do not have Design Adhesives, then rub-ons, vellum of clear stickers, and small diecut shapes will work just as well.
Add a word to the front of the ornament with sticker letters . I swapped out the “O” with an Epiphany Crafts Vintage Setting that I gilded with copper embossing powder. I then added an Epiphany Crafts Star 25 Epoxy embellishment I created with some foil debossed paper.
I then uncoiled one side of an S-shaped paper clip to make a hanger. A satin bow glued to the base of the metal cap finishes it all off.
I plan to make more of these with the kids in various colors. Hope this project inspires you to put some of your scrapbooking supplies to work to create something easy yet thoughtful to give.
Happy Creating :)
