My wonderful DIY guru Tammy of Life is Not Just Paper and Glue has sent me a wonderful tutorial to share with my Fashionably Organized readers. I promise you will not be disappointed by this wonderful project. Want to see more of her beautiful talent check out her PK Glitz site and her Dixie Pieces (now you see why she is a DIY goddess).
Glitter: (P K Glitz)
Art Acetate (P K Glitz)
2 Large Chipboard Rings (P K Glitz)
Sticky Tape: 3/8” (P K Glitz)
Goat Hair brush
3-D Crystal Lacquer (Sakura)
4” circle single sided patterned paper
Gold Pen (Krylon)
3 – 4 inches of ribbon
4. Remove a portion of the Sticky Tape cover and pour Gilded Ivory over the circle. Brush off excess. Note: Make sure both circles are completely covered before moving on to the next step.
6. Center the acetate on the circle. Cut away excess acetate.
8.Lay the circle over the top of the acetate.
9. Turn over and add press down to make sure the acetate is attached to the circle.
13. Add clothespins to hold the circle together until it is completely dry. If you don’t have clothespins you may want to place it under a book. This should only take about 10 minutes to dry – depending on the humidity.
Here’s a .pdf version of the directions for you to print (available for 1 month only).
Thank you to Tammy for the beautiful tutorial. I hope you are able to make this beautiful ornament for your tree.
