Grade One Christmas Presents

I've finally finished making all of the ornaments that Grant is going to give his grade one students for Christmas. They love seeing their name on things so we thought these personalized ornaments would be perfect.

Here is a closer picture of one of the ornaments. Seeing as I didn't have any outline stamps that would be good to use for these ornaments (for this age group) Grant and I found this digital-stamp that was available for free from Aimee Asher. I printed it out on transparency then used black embossing powder on it so that the image wouldn't smudge. On the reverse side of the transparency I coloured all the parts I wanted white with my versamark pen and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. Then I coloured the images with sharpies and inserted them into the ornaments. Again, I used this ornament tutorial from SCS on how to insert the image into the ornament. Then I simply added silver elastic cord to be able to hang the ornament and the various coloured ribbon for extra pizzaz!

Overall, this was a very inexpensive gift. All that we had to purchase was the glitter and ornaments which came to only about $26 for 24 ornaments and we only needed 17 for the class!

Supplies:

Stamp: Aimee Asher snowfriends digital stamp
Ink: SU Versamark
Embossing Powders: SU black and white
Ribbon: SU silver elastic cord; Michael's red, blue and green Spool o'ribbon
Glitter: Martha Stewart crystal coarse glitter
Misc: transparency, clear ornaments, sharpies
