Aren't these ornaments adorable?  And they were SO easy to make!  I go out to lunch every Wednesday with a wonderful group of ladies and tomorrow is our Christmas lunch.  So I wanted to make a little gift for everyone and this is what I came up with. Caution:  use gloves or your hands with be quite colorful when done.  Oh, and you will definitely be GLITTERING no matter what! 

I made them in lots of rich colors and then added some little decals I cut out of our Decor Elements Sheets with my Big Shot:

  • Ink – Various Classic Ink Refills:  Rich Razzleberry, Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue, Old Olive ($2.95)
  • Ribbon – Clear Tinsel Trim (#120993, $7.95)
  • Accessories – White Decor Element Sheets (#114335, $12.95), Stampin' Glitter: Fine Supernova (#114287, $13.95), Fine Galaxy (#114286, $13.95), Fine Cosmo (#108796, $13.95), Dazzling Diamonds (#102023, $4.50), Clear Glass Ornaments (craft store)
  • Tools – Big Shot, Northern Frost Strip Die (#120901, $21.95), Join the Cheer Strip Die (#113452, $21.95)
  1. Remove the cap and hanger from the ornament.
  2. Add about 25 drops of classic ink refill to the inside of your ornament directly to the bottom.  Swirl around until it completely covers the inside.  This will take a couple of minutes to be sure it is evenly coated.
  3. Empty any remaining ink by sitting in a small container for several seconds.  I used an empty Stampin' Glitter jar.  Perfect for this task!
  4. Fold a piece of cardstock in half and then unfold (this will be you "funnel").  Pour some of our fabulous fine glitter onto the center of the cardstock.  Funnel it into the ornament about 1/4 teaspoon or so at a time.
  5. Cover your opening with a paper towel or your gloved finger.  Quickly shake around the ball.  Continue until the inside is evenly coated.
  6. Replace your cap and hanger.
  7. Add ribbon, vinyl accents or rub-ons, if desired.
