Christmas Party Favors


As promised, here are a couple photos (you can click on the image for a larger view) of the ornaments I made for my girlfriend, Lona's upcoming Company Christmas Party.
The images were stamped onto acetate which I cut in circles using my Creative Memories cutting system (worked GREAT). Some are silouettes and others are colored in using permanent markers. I used diamond Stickles to add a little "snowflake" sparkle to each one before inserting into the "flat" round ornaments. The ornaments were purchased at Michaels but I know you can find them various places. To insert the acetate circle, I put a small hole on the top of the acetate using a 1/16" hole punch, ran a small piece of thread, cording ... whatever you have like that ... rolled it up from the side and inserted it through the ornament top. Once inserted, it pops back open and the cording is hung over the top of the ornament opening until you have put the hanging top back on ... then cut off any additional cording/thread which is hanging on the outside of the ornament. Ta Dah!!
I made 44 of these ornaments (and a few extras for myself) and will deliver them to my friend tomorrow ... sure hope she likes them!! Thanks for stopping by ...
