Got this from Carol Duval. I poured clear varnish into a clear glass ornament, let excess drain out, insert curled up snowflake(stamp on wrapping tissue paper), sprinkle glitter inside ball a little at a time to avoid clumping. Add Dazzling Diamonds. Shake gently,let dry, insert hanger back into top, add ribbon. Voila!(For my Christmas stamp camp, I used cheaper glitter with just a little touch of Dazzling Diamonds. These are beautiful with Dazzling Diamonds alone.)

I don't get it. Can you give a little more detail on the directions? I don't understand how the tissue paper is making the ball completely white and the snowflakes are so smoothly against the glass. Thanks for any more additional information you can give!

Thanks for the directions. I haven't tried this. Are the cut-out snowflakes hard to position once they are inside the ornament? The tissue is so delicate, I would think it would tear when trying to position them. I love this project and the gift box that you designed to go with the ornament! Beautiful work!

I used a pipe cleaner to smooth the tissue paper out. Hint: Roll the tissue paper around tweezers or pencil so that center of cutout snowflake is out. The center will be what is set in the inside first, then the outer parts. It is easy to tear so be sure to set it where you want it in the beginning.
