Papercraft Business Challenge: A gift Ornament

I’ve created this snowflake ornament as my gift for the Papercraft Business Challenge for November. And for the first time I have included step by step photos.

Ink up the wooden ornament with a navy dye ink by rubbing ink pad directly on wood. I let it dry overnight before moving on to the next step.

I removed the pad from the Misti and placed the ornament against one edge. I used the magnet to help keep it in place. I arranged the snowflake stamps on the ornament. The picked them up with the Misti door. I used an anti static powder tool but if I did this again I would be extremely generous with the powder. I still had to wipe away a lot of embossing powder. I stamped the snowflakes a few times with embossing ink.

Then I added white embossing powder and melted it with a heat gun. I was very careful not to leave the heat gun on the wood for too long so I didn’t burn it.

I used an acrylic block to stamp snowflakes in a few blank spots. I added embossing powder and heat set those as well.

I used a silver metallic pen to color in the ornament top.

I added dots with a white gel pen to fill up the empty space and help to disguise any stray embossing powder I couldn’t get off. Lastly I changed out the red ribbon for a silver that looked more appropriate.

Please let me know what you thought of my step by step photos. Don’t forget to enter your project in the Papercraft Business Challenge. You could win the stamps shown below! Thanks for visiting!
