Tutorial on Stamping with Window Sheets and Glass Ornaments

I have a tutorial for you on how to stamp with Window Sheets and Glass Ornaments

Your will need

 Stampin' Up! Window Sheets
STAZON Black Ink
Snow Much Fun, Greeting Card Kids, and Bells & Boughs stamp sets
3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit
Paper Snips
Non- Stampin' Up! items
Glass Oranments
Sharpie Markers   

1. Gather all your items you will need for this project.
2. Stamp with STAZON Black Ink on Window Sheet. Let dry...turn sheet over and color in stamped image. Sharpie markers are permanent and will not smear.
 Coloring on the opposite side of the Window prevents the STAZON Ink from smearing.

Cut the stamped image in a circle.

  Roll the window sheet with stamped image like the photo above. Place it in the ornament. When the window sheet gets past the opening it will snap into place. If for some reason, the window sheet circle is a little crooked, use the eraser end of a pencil to straighten it out.

This is a side view to show how the stamped window sheet looks after it is in place.

Here are all four ornaments with the window sheets inside.

 I added some Mica Flakes to make the ornaments look like there is snow in the bottom. Glitter works real well too. To finish off the ornaments I added a bow.
This type of ornament is nice to have on hand in the Christmas Season for a last minute gift. This year I am giving the mail lady, trash man and UPS driver ornaments similar to these.
 You will find the clear glass ornaments at your local craft store. Plastic ornaments work as well.
I hope you will give this a try.
Happy Stampin'

  1. Jane - I found if you cut the acetate in the shape of an ornament (with a little tab at the top) instead of a full circle, you can keep the image in position really easily. Great project!


  2. Thank you so much!!! This will be a great (inexpensive) gift for my grandchildren and grand nieces/nephews!!!

  3. Love these ornaments! Thanks for the great ideas!!

  4. Jane, Thanks so much for sharing this with us! What a wonderful idea!

  5. thanks for the reminder of this quick and fun project! I was looking for an idea for "something different" for club this month....and I already have the clear glass ornaments from the Clearance bin at the M store several years ago. Yes, they are almost "antique" at this point....will dust 'em off and put them to good use!
