It’s that time of the year to kick making into full gear. It is easier to create when you narrow your focus and choose a color scheme to work with. This year I have chosen Berry, Blue and Silver. I knew I wanted to make some “Mail-able Ornaments” for my far away friends. MBoss embossing powders are just the ticket!
Time: 15 minutes per ornament
Die-cut or hand cut desired ornament shapes from a medium weight chipboard. I used the ornament die from Sizzix.
Pounce the ornament on a VersaMark pad until the entire ornament has been covered with the ink.
Pour desired color of Mboss embossing powder over the ornament, shake off and reserve excess powder for future use.
Use a heat tool to melt the embossing powder and let cool.
Repeat steps 2 – 4 one or two more times creating a thick molten layer of embossing powder over the ornament.
Immediately after the final melting cycle press a stamp into the molten embossing powder and let the embossing powder cool. Note: the molten embossing powder will not damage the stamp.
After the embossing powder has cooled, peel the ornament from the stamp.
Embellish the ornaments as desired.
Add a length of stretch cord for a hanger.
