Holiday Craft Project

This holiday I experimented with Acrylic and made these cute ornaments for hanging from car rear view mirrors. I started with an acrylic flower from pageframe and then stamped on it using Staz On inks. That was an adventure in itself. The Staz On inks were very messy, but worked beautifully on the acrylic. Then I added some vellum in the center and finished it off with some Prima flowers, a crystal star, and some matching ribbon. I sealed it with SuperSeal to make it UV resistant but was so disappointed with it made the acrylic cloudy and no longer clear. I hope it is worth it and it doesn't fade in our hot florida sun. We'll see. I made one for each of my family members so they can put them in their cars too. Everyone loved them. Hopefully you will give them a try as well.
