I am making a set of ornaments with the Holy Triptych, from the new Winter Mini. I just love this set and feel like there is still so much I can do with it! Thanks for looking! Several have asked how I did this, well this is by no means an orginal idea of mine. I got the idea last year from the trim the tree gallery, if you checkout the gallery there there are so many beautiful ornaments. But I will give my directions. You first stamp your image on the window sheet with stazon, remember the window sheets and stazon are slipper so be careful to go straight up and down. After the stazon has dried, using your favorite circle template cut out the image to a size that will fit into your glass ornament. My range from 21/2 to 2" depending on which ornamement I am using. Then I turned the image over and colored on the backside with the sharpies. After this had dried I covered the back with Crystal Effects, a thin coat, and sprinkled with dazzling diamonds. Let it dry completely. After it has dried, I punch a hole in the top of the circle and thread a piece of cord through it. This acts as a stablelizer to keep your circle from moving around. Roll the circle image into a tube that will fit into the mouth of your ornament and slide it down through being careful to keep the cord on the top outside. Your image should unroll some but if it needs help just use a paint brush to help press it out flat. I then thread the cord through the holes in the ornament top and add the top back to the ornament. I make sure the wires on the top are behind my image. I use a glue dot to hold the cord to the top of the ornament then add a drop of crystal effects to really make it stay. After that has dried I trim the cord off. I will add ribbon to the top of these also but wasn't sure what color I wanted to do yet. Hope this all makes sense. If you have more questions feel free to PM me. Thanks!
