A Pink Lemonade Tutorial: Step By Step of how to make the Very Vintage Spherical Ornament

Good Morning!!! I am back today  to show you the step by step on how I made my Very Vintage Spherical Ornament.

01 First Set of Supplies Needed - Keri Lee Sereika

1 – First you will need the stamps you wish to work with(I am using Angelic by Layers Of Color), a good ink pad (I am using Tsukineko’s Olympia GreenVersaFine because it really lends to crisp images & dries quickly), and a piece of cardstock that is 6″x12″

03 Fill in with smaller images - Keri Lee Sereika

04 Cut into 1 inch Strips - Keri Lee Sereika

4 – Cut the entire stamped panel into 1″x6″ strips

05 Second Set of Supplies Needed - Keri Lee Sereika

5 – Next you will need an ink sweeper& Brilliance ink  in Chocolate

09 Punch Holes In Top & Bottom of Strips One Half Inch From End - Keri Lee Sereika

9 – Punch a hole about 1/2″ in from each end.

 

10 Thread End of Twine through eye of Large Embroidery Needle and Tie On Crystal to end of Twine - Keri Lee Sereika

11 Thread Neeedle through Entire Stack of Stamped Strips, going from The Stamped Side To The Blank Side - Keri Lee Sereika

11 – Place the needle through the entire stack of strips going from the stamped side to the blank side, this will be the bottom of your ornament.

12 Thread needle through holes at top end of strips going from the blank side to the stamped side - Keri Lee Sereika

13 Pull the strips to a U shape and tie a length of Organdy ribbon through a knot at the top of the ornament - Keri Lee Sereika

13 – Pull the strips into a “U” shape and tie a length of wide organdy ribbon through a knot at the top of the ornament.

 

14 Tie a loop at the top of the twine - Keri Lee Sereika

14 – Tie the twine into a loop at the top of the ornament, making the knot as close as possible to the ribbon knot.

 

15 Tie ribbon into a full bow - Keri Lee Sereika

15 –  Tie the length of ribbon into a full pretty bow.

 

16 Use Heat Tool To Heat and Crumple Ribbon - Keri Lee Sereika

16 – Carefully heat the ribbon to create more of the aged vintage feel. WARNING: The heat tool is extremely HOT so becareful not to over heat and melt the ribbon or to catch it on fire. Go in small short applications of heat and pull the tool away as soon as you see the ribbon begin to crumple.
