These are really simple shaker ornaments. I need to make quite a few to send to extended family so I wanted something simple. I'm also overseas, hence limited availability for glass balls and stuff, so I needed something where I already had the supplies.
Due to popluar demand, I'm adding the directions:
Each ornament takes:
2 qty.-2.5 inch squares colored cardstock
1 qty.-2 1/8-inch square window sheet
1 qty.-2.25-inch white or light cardstock
Fillers (micro beads, glitter, confetti)
Alene's thick tacky glue (thick is important, it's a white bottle with pink label.)
Cut 2-inch circle in center of square for each ornament. Leave one square uncut. Stamp the desired image in the center of white cardstock. Place window sheet over round hole. Using narrow foam tape, place strips of tape along the edges of the window sheet. Put the strips 1/2 on the window sheet and 1/2 on the cardstock. Make sure the strips of tape fit snugly against each other. (I cut 3/4-inch tape from Home Depot in fourths lengthwise and it was perfect.)
Leave the backing on the top side of the foam tape. Rub the embossing buddy on the window sheet to reduce static. Fill the little pool you've created with desired fillers. Peel the backing from the tape, placing the ends of the cord on the tape in the corner, making a loop. Place the white cardstock on the tape, with the image side down. Squiggle the tacky glue over the back of the white cardstock and adhere the 2nd piece of colored cardstock to the back of the ornament. Wait about 10 minutes for the glue to set and you're finished.
