Using the Glitter Ornaments with Embossed Images technique (see Glitter Ornaments Part 2 in Tips and Techniques), add the sentiment and glitter to the glass ornament.Â Set aside to dry.ï»¿
Stamp and heat emboss the poinsettia on the acetate four times.ï»¿
3.Â Color on the back of the image with alcohol markers.Â Though it may seem a bit smeared on the back, it shows great color on the front. ï»¿
Add a Super Adhesive sheet to the back and fussy cut as follows:ï»¿
First Flower - cut the full image
Second Flower - cut out the flower, only (no leaves)
Third Flower - cut out the flower, removing several of the outer petals
Fourth Flower - cut out the seven center petals
Remove the protective backing from each flower and add the Gypsy Red Velvet glitter.Â On the full image, cover the adhesive on the flower with the protective backing from the second image so only the leaves are revealed.Â Add Lator Gator Velvet glitter to the leaves.Â Remove the backing and add Gypsy Red Velvet Glitter to the flower.
Cut a hole from the center of the full image, the size of the ornament top.Â Then add tiny slits around the center and slide over the top of the ornament.
Repeat step 6 with the second flower, but before adding it to the ornament replace the metal hanger and wrap a strip of double stick foam tape around it.Â This will keep the second flower slightly above the first flower.ï»¿
Add small strips from the super adhesive sheet to the ornament top.Â Cut a small slit in the center of the third flower, slide it over the wire hanger, and adhere to the top.Â Add small pieces of foam tape to the center of the third flower layer.Â Very carefully cut a slit in the center of the fourth flower and slide over the wire hanger and onto the foam tape.ï»¿ï»¿
ï»¿Add small yellow jewels to the center of the poinsettia and gold ribbon to the wire hanger. ï»¿
Place the green jewel swirls onto the actual glass ornament, coming from beneath the poinsettia and to the sides of the sentiment.ï»¿
Tip:Â Check how each layer lines up with the each other when cutting centers and slits so the petals will still line up when placed on the ornament.Â If your first and second flower layers fit loosely around the ornament top, you may want to add some adhesive between the first flower layer and the ornament and extra foam tape between the first and second flower layers to keep them lined up.
Extra:Â If you like the look of the acetate poinsettia, it can also be used as an ornament by itself by simply popping each layer up with foam tape and adding the ribbon between the first and second layer.
