I bought some ornaments last year on after Christmas clearance. Some were clear and some frosted. I tried the pledge and glitter trick on one and wasn’t thrilled. It was an uglier version of what a store-bought glitter ornament would look like.
Then I tried alcohol ink on a clear ornament. That turned out better but was plain.So when I decided to make personalized ornaments. I used one of the alcohol ink ornaments that I had made as a base. The H on the ornament it CentB font, Harper is PC Dazzle as is the back of the ornament. I like PC Dazzle because it cuts well at any size and weeds well. With the ” H” I scored all of the edges with my exacto knife prior to removing it from the backing. This helped it lay flat on the round ornament.
So that worked for the girls, but what about the boys? Gavin would not like purple. So I made this ornament for him. I stole his face from a My Scrap Chick file.
And then, because I had seen an ornament on-line and said “I can make that” (ask my family how often I say that) I made this Hello Kitty ornament.
All of the ornaments were made by cutting vinyl on my wonderful KNK Maxx. The first two are made with Oracal 631 and the Hello Kitty is Oracal 651 only because I wanted the glossy finish. The vinyl is available at www.knkusa.com.
So, go get those clearance ornaments before they are gone and for about 25 cents you can make some great personalized ornaments for the little ones in your life.
