Heritage Ornament Idea

by Noelle Faulkner

Let's get started!

1. To get your photos into your computer you can scan them or photograph them with a digital camera. Scanning is best but you can usually get excellent results with a digital camera as well.

2. Using your editing software resize each image to fit the button it will go on. Adjust the color and brightness to your satisfaction. Depending on the software you're using you can also add many fun effects such as: fading the edges, giving the image a sepia tone, adding grain, and so on.

3. Paste the resized images into a new 8 ½ X 11'' document to make the most efficient use of the Inkjet Silk Sheets.

4. Print images on Inkjet Silk Sheet(s).

5. Peel the paper backing off the silk sheet. Cut images to size and cover the buttons according to the instructions on the package, preparing the buttons first by pulling out the metal shank from the back. (It takes two buttons glued back to back to make each ornament. The metal shank would get in the way.

6. Glue the buttons back to back with craft glue and let dry.

7. Paint lace trim with Lumiere and let dry.

8. Embellish your ornament with ribbons and the painted lace. I glued grosgrain ribbon around the edges (to cover the joining of the buttons) and glued the painted lace over that. Make a bow from ribbon and lace then glue, or stitch at the top. Add an ornament hanger and you're done!

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example: adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in any sizes will give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.
