Here's a simple project the girls and I did together.
We made very pretty ornaments for our family. I just love handmaking gifts for people. I don't know if they enjoy receiving them as much as we enjoy making them.
Here's what you need for these ornaments:
Clear bulbs (we bought ours at Michaels)
Tim Holtz' alcohol inks
make up sponges
die cut machine
transfer tape for the vinyl
First we dropped some ink on a sponge
Next we dapped or smeared it all over the clear bulb. I prefer dabbing b/c it gives a cute polka dot design. Gigi was more of a smearer. Lexi is a dabber like me.
Next we let them dry.
Then we cut out different images with my Cricut using SCAL (I <3 SCAL) on the vinyl. We used the transfer tape to adhere the images to the bulbs.
All we have left to do is add some ribbon to the hoops and waa-laa we are done.
Even our Elf is getting into the spirit of craftiness!!
Blog at you soon!
Love and Hugs!!
