Here is a little something that is sweet and quick for a last minute baby gift. Who wouldn't love a personalized baby's 1st Christmas ornament? I used three different stamp sets from JustRite Stampers to create this little Christmas ornament, Small Letter Set for Round Monogram Stampers, Baby Stamp Ensemble and Curlz Paper Crafting Font Ensemble. With JustRite Stampers the font sets come in three different sizes, 94pt. 50pt. 25pt which make them perfect for personalizing an item of any size. The Curlz Paper Crafting Font Ensemble also comes with numbers and symbols in the three different sizes for a TOTAL of 237 characters!!
To make these ornaments you will need stamps, clear glass Christmas ornaments, acetate, Black Stazon Ink, and some Sharpie markers. I started out by tracing the pattern for the ornaments and then to do the stamping I inked the stamps with them facing up and then very carefully applied the acetate to the stamp. When you are doing this you have to be careful not to move your hand. Unfortunately acetate is not very forgiving if you move!I started with the baby's first Christmas at the top and then worked my way down.Once I had everything stamped I colored in the backside using Sharpie markers. Then I applied crystal effects to the back and added some ultra fine glitter and set aside to dry. I filled up the glass ornament about half way with a mixture of snow and glitter. When the acetate was dry I rolled it up and put inside the ornament, leaving most of the snow on the backside. To finish off the ornament I added a pink bow, some little pine sprigs (Martha punch) with glitter and some pink rhinestones.Supplies~
