I trimmed the edges of the white off the paper for only my image-
Cut cardboard to the same size as the ornament you are making-
I took the checkered paper and allowed for overlay-
I used the bone folder to smooth over edges to front, don’t worry the Santa will cover up the front and these won’t show! I fold over prior to spraying to have folds made so securing to adhesive is quick and goes smoothly **If your cardboard has images cover with gesso or white paint and let dry or blow dry prior to securing paper on!
I use the paper adhesive to spray on the paper lightly and cardboard! As you can see from the photo below I don’t spray the fold over sides until the back surface is adhered!** Ensure your room is well ventilated and that you have wax paper or something protecting your table surface or do it in a garage or outdoors weather permitting!
Now I sprayed the rest of the cardboard with the folded edges and laid my Santa image on top.
Then I smoothed out the paper securing it to the card board. It dries very quickly. Don’t worry if you have a little overhang if you are covering with ribbon, twine or other. If you have overhang and aren’t covering with ribbon carefully trim any excess ensuring you aren’t cutting too much and getting too far into your image or plan out your ornament for more accuracy- meaning that you have measured and cut equally to start.
With your hole punch add a hole where you would like it to hang from- **But adhere any outside ribbon you are adding prior to adding your loop to hang from and then your brad! See below~
You may cut out different images ( if you are reselling insure there is no copyright!! ) You may cut different shapes. This is just a basic easy to do ornament for anyone. Including doing it with children if you are helping them~ If you use this tutorial do post an image link to what you have made in the comment section as I would love to see. For images you can find two free image sights at the bottom of the blog! Feel free to share a link to the tutorial with credits to me!
