I'm glad you all like it! Here are the instructions:
The size of the acetate circle is 2-1/2". I used a compass to get the correct measurement. When you're ready to cut the circle out, cut around it, but make a little tab sticking up on the top of the circle. This little tab will be in the little tube on the top of the ornament. It will keep the acetate from moving around when it's in the ornament.
Then I stamped Frosty on the circle using Jet Black Stazon. After the ink dried, I turned the circle over, and colored Frosty in with the Sharpie markers. You want to color on the back, so the stazon doesn't smear. Even though the ink is dry, the markers can still make it smear.
I forgot to include in my list of supplies that I used Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and Crystal Effects. After I colored in Frosty, I smeared Crystal Effects all over the back of the acetate. Then I sprinkled the glitter on. I've heard of people using their Xyron instead of the Crystal Effects as well. When that is done, I wrapped the circle around a pencil (with glitter side against the pencil), and put it into the ornament. Then I removed the pencil, making sure the tab was on the top and the acetate rolled back out flat.
