Last year I made all of the grand kids personalized Christmas ornaments inspired by "Christmas with the Cricut"-now "Everyday Cricut" They were adorable and loved by all so this year, when I saw Emma's creation I knew I would have to try it again this year. I'm not great with videos so I'm doing my tutorial in pictures. So here we go! I changed projects in the middle so I will be starting in one color and ending with another (I have a very short attention span!)
round, but flattened glass or plastic ornament (got mine at Micheals and the come in glass or plastic)
Pledge Future Floor Wax
Modge Podge (High Gloss or Sparkle)
Step 2: Chose your glitter and using a small funnel put into the ornament. Again-if you put in too much, not to worry. Cover the top and shake gently assuring you cover all surfaces of your ornament. When you are certain you have pour the excess out for re-use!

Step 5: Once the snowflake is dry I applied the numbers for the year placing them across the snowflake. Now I found they lay much better if I run them through my Xyron-create -a-sticker vs using the Modge Podge as the adhesive. I think that may be because the glitter paper is so heavy and thick. Once applied I cover the snowflake and year with another coat of Modge Podge Sparkle. Allow to dry. Another coat can be applied if you chose.
Step 6: Tie a pretty bow around the neck of the ornament and thread additional ribbon through the top to form a loop to hang your beautiful creation on the tree!

I still have 9 more children to do and I am doing one a very special one for a family member for a very special event that is going to happen....but nobody knows (but me!) Any guesses out there? I'll share when it is done! Happy Crafting Peeps !
