Up first is Shelley with some fabulous ornaments.....

For the first gift of Christmas an idea came to me..........some holiday ornaments for your tree.

If you get the supplies for the easy version, they are a perfect craft for the kids to do as a teacher's gift.

Easy Version
More Difficult Version
Instructions: Easy
  • Paper - Basic Grey "Jovial"
  • Glass Craft Ornament (Available at craft stores)

Cut paper into strips 3/4" by 6" long

Roll up the paper strips

Insert all the rolls of paper into the top of the glass ornament, replace the top and attach a ribbon to the top for hanging.

Instructions: More Difficult


**Don't forget that the I-Rock tool and accessories are the Product Highlight this month so are 15% off until the end of November**

Next die cut a snowflake out of the vinyl and adhere to the glass ornament

Follow the instructions on the bottle of Etch All

Once the glass has been etched I adhered the bling to the glass ball to highlight the snowflake. Then follow the instructions above by rolling the paper and insert into ornament. Attach a ribbon to the top for hanging from the tree.

NOTE: You will notice that I first tried the etching on the shaped ornament, but I didn't know it was iridescent glass and the etching did not work on iridescent glass, so I had to use it for the easy ornament and the round ornament for the more difficult. Hope you like them and try a few for yourself!!
