Crafting is so much better with friends. That’s why I {finally} joined in the fun with The Silhouette Challenge Facebook Group. The theme for December was Holidays. Perfect! Scroll down to see the other amazing projects. Affiliate links have been included. I may receive compensation.

I love my Silhouette CAMEO, but when life gets busy I don’t use it as much as I would like. But sometimes you see something and know that you have to use it for a special project.

When I saw double-sided adhesive sheets from Silhouette, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

Glitter Ornaments.

Yes. Glitter.

While some crafters loathe glitter, I’m kind of partial. We do have numerous princess dresses in our house. One can always tell when and where the princesses are playing. Just follow the trail of glitter.

Red is always a great color for Christmas, but this raspberry color is BEAUTIFUL in real life.

I will admit that sometimes projects seem really easy but once I get them started, everything takes ten times longer than expected.

I promise this snowflake ornament is a great beginner project as you figure out your Silhouette Cameo.

Silhouette Cameo

Here is what you need:

silhouette CAMEO

snowflake design from the Design Store

double-sided adhesive sheets

hook tool for weeding the adhesive sheet

clear plastic or glass disc ornaments

glitter

small plastic tub to contain glitter when applying it to the ornament

Get started

You don’t have to do snowflakes. A monogram would be super special. I was going to do Santa on his sleigh, but I figured snowflakes would be the easiest.

I ungrouped the image and deleted the ones I wasn’t going to use. It sounds a lot harder than it really is.

I moved these three snowflakes around a bit until I got the placement that I wanted and grouped them together again.

Then I sized it to fit on the ornament and crossed my fingers that the calculations were correct.

The hardest part of the whole project is getting the snowflakes off the adhesive paper.

They were actually slightly too large, but that’s fine. I still used the snowflakes. I just placed them on one at a time.

Place the “sticker” where you want it. I placed all the snowflakes at the same time, but you could do one at a time. If you’re going to do different glitters on the same ornament, I would suggest one at a time.

I used a largish plastic container for applying glitter. It’s easier that way for me. Use a small clean paintbrush to brush away the excess glitter.

I do LOVE my raspberry glitter ornament, but I also wanted to experiment with white since I was working with a snowflake.

It’s pretty.

I like the raspberry better.

Great project. I'm a big fan of the double sided paper and tapes too. The Christmas balls look fabulous.

I wouldn't have thought to use the double-sided adhesive on glass balls. Thanks for the idea!
