Have any of you put up the tree yet in your homes? For those of you that haven't yet and are going to, get to it, time's a-wastin'! Maybe you want to give your tree a personal, vintage touch? Look no further than your Slice machine! This cute little ornament was made with the Advent and Millinery design cards. It's super easy to make and our designer's husband was so excited about it, he wanted to make one for each member of the family. Find out how to make this adorable vintage ornament after the jump.
First thing you'll need to do is cut out a snowflake shape. Do this with one of the Advent cards snowflakes at the 4" size using regular scrapbook paper. Then, put some glue all over the top. If you use spray adhesive, it helps to evenly coat the ornament with glue. If you use modge podge or elmer's or something similar, brush a light coating over the top. Dredge the snowflake in the glitter. It's helpful to use hairspray after you have glued the glitter to keep it from shedding all over the place.
The tricky part is to cut the shape around the picture. Print out an image you would like to use on a picture quality paper. Make the image about 2.25" square. Then, cut out a 2" circle on a piece of SCRAP paper. Leave your Slice in position after it has cut the circle out of the scrap paper. Do NOT move it. Mark on your paper where the edges of the Slice machine are. Place the scrap paper over your picture and then position your Slice using the markings on the edge of the scrap paper. Remove the scrap paper and cut out your image. Perfection!
