Secret Santa Personalized Ornaments

Grant's school has been doing Secret Santa's and they have been giving gifts over several days. As part of what Grant has given to his coworker, we created these personalized ornaments for her, her husband and her daughter. They also received the Rudolph Spares. He will give his co-worker a larger store-bought gift tomorrow. These are the ornaments for her and her husband. The image was stamped in Versamark on transparency and heat embossed with white embossing powder. To write the names I used my Versamark pen and then heat embossed it as well. I was unable to get a good photo of the one for her daugher (it has a cute little image inside) but hopefully I can show you other similar ones soon as it is what Grant will be giving his students for Christmas!

If you have any questions about how to create this project, refer to this glass ornament tutorial on SCS. For my decoration, the transparency is cut only about 1/8" smaller than the diameter of the ball because I liked the way it looked better (also the size of my glass balls are different).

Stamp: SU Two Cool Dudes
Ink: SU Versamark ink pad and pen
Ribbons: SU silver cord, white organdy ribbon
Glitter: Martha Stewart crystal coarse glitter
Embossing powder: SU white
Misc: Transparency, circle cutting system, glass ornament
