Today I'm sharing a couple of mini glass ornaments my Christmas pajamas card I made using MCT's All Around Christmas set and Mixed Holiday Sentiments (Snowmany Hugs) set.
My cozy jammies card is simply a CRISS CROSS CARD, flipped to be 5 1/2" in height instead of the tutorials way of 4 1/4". Obviously you can make this type of card for any occasion and it's so easy, I think that you'll definitely want to try it too!
Homemade glass ornaments:
* Stamp your image on punched shape from cardstock (not too heavy or it won't bend right). Clear plastic overlay material works really good cus it bounces right back once inside your bulb and doesn't have to be "fixed". For this, stamping with a nice bold or bright color works best.. For these mini bulbs I used my SU! scalloped circle punch for one and 1 3/8" circle punch on the other. You can go bigger as long as your punched shape is smaller than the bulb! ;)
* Punch a small hole at the top of the stamped shape, then string narrow ribbon through the hole.
* gently "roll" the sides of your image just enough to slide through the hole of the glass bulb. It will be slightly curved so to make it "flat" again--take a popcicle stick or similar "tool" to push up behind the image and very gently return the paper to a flattened position.
* Remove the ornament top and string the ribbon straight up through the hole of the top, then try to get the stamped image in front of the two wire prongs (this holds the image in place better). Return top to the bulb and pull the ribbon til you have your image centered within the bulb, then tie at the top.
*Adorn with ribbon/embellishments if desired and done!
