Christmas Hanging Decoration Tutorial

Here is my tutorial for making a Christmas Hanging Decoration..  :)

You will need :-
Snowglobe Digi image or Polymer stamp from HERE
Scallop Nestie
Fine glitter/Glamour Dust
Snow Flake punch
Fiber or Ribbon

1.   Stamp or print your Snowglobe image twice (approx size 8cm)
2.   Colour your images as shown below

3.   Decorate with Ice Stickles and Baby Blue Stickles

4.   Cut your acetate with the Scallop nestie (approx size 8.5 cm)
5.   Now apply Baby Blue Stickles around the edge of scallop circle

6.   Punch 4 snowflakes and using fine glitter or Glamour Dust apply to both sides of the snowflakes

7.   Find the top centre of your acetate circle and punch a small hole
8.   Once everything is dry use PVA glue to adhere the snowflakes as in the picture -
      they are only applied to one side of the acetate
9.   Now adhere 1 of your images
10. Turn over and adhere your second image matching it up with the back of the first image.
11. Use some fiber or ribbon and thread through the punched hole - tie at top

 Now your Christmas Decoration is ready to hang and because it has the same image
back and front it won't matter if it twirls around, it will still look good  :)

I hope you enjoyed this wee tutorial -
please leave us a link to your decoration if you make one. :)
