2010 Heirloom Ornament

with you...

B F shot

Here are some instructions on how you can use these Nestabilities® to create some of your own homemade ornaments.

First step shot 

1)  Use gold foil cardstock to cut and emboss S4- 283  2010 Heirloom Ornament #5 (#1 is the smallest.)

Step shot one one 

2) Using the S4-244 Fair Isle Borderabilities® Petite die template, emboss image across all three gold ornaments.

Step shot one two

Step Shot two

3)  Center a S4-248 Labels Thirteen die template (#3)over the foil  and the flip it so the cut side is facing up.  (I have it shown facing down so you can see where to center it and place a tiny piece of tape to be sure it stays in the right spot when I flip it over.

4)  Cut and emboss a #4 2010 Heirloom Ornament out of pattern paper three times.

Step Shot three

5)  Once again, center S4-248 Labels Thirteen #3 on the pattern paper, and after lining it up, cut and emboss it.

Step shot four

6)  After inking all the die templates, layer them on the gold foil ornaments and adhere trim to the edge of window. 

Step shot 55555 

7)  Adhere photos to back of window.

8)  Using liquid adhesive, glue the edges of the foil die templates  together.

9)  Sew a piece of thread through the top and add bow, buttons and tinsel to embellish.
