~Clear Acrylic Glitter Word Ornament Tutorial!~

     Merry Christmas to my crafty friends!!! 
I am really in the ornament making mood and when I found these mini Expressions from Clear Scraps in my pile of goodness I thought it would be PERFECT to create even more fun ornaments. 
Step 1. Remover protective film from the back of the Expressions. Leaving the front film in tact.
Step 2. Coat back of Expressions in adhesive and Clearsnap glitter, set aside to dry. 
Step 3. Take Bell Mini Album or any wintery design from
Clear Scraps, remove both sides of protective film. 
Step 4. Using Piccolo embossing adhesive- apply embossing enamel
 or powder to edges on the adhesive. 
Step 5. GENTLY and slowly heat set using embossing gun. Just lightly place heat on and remove quickly, working your way around the Clear Scraps acrylic. If it begins to warp immediately remove heat then press gently with finger or tweezers. 
Step 6. Using Crop-A-Dile punch small holes where you want to thread ornament. 
Step 7. Thread ornament using thin mesh ribbon. Knotting in the back.
Step 8. Create bow using same ribbon, adhere to top of Bell Mini Album Page. 
Not only easy but beautiful and handmade! 
I wish I had my tree up to photograh but it's not quite ready yet,
I will be sure to share when it's up and on the tree!
