Panda Express!

If you happen to be looking for a last minute gift that is quick and easy on the ol' wallet , this may be just what you are looking for! This adorable panda bear image from lalaland crafts is now available as a digital stamp and is the perfect size for these glittered glass ornaments!

To create your own ornament simply print image onto acetate {available at your local office supply} and as soon as it prints sprinkle with embossing powder and emboss. Using a circle punch, or your cricut cut to fit your ornament { they are available in many sizes} Turn over and color with paint pen on back side of embossed image. If you color on front you run the risk of getting paint on your embossed and raised area.Let dry completely! this is a very important step!!!!

Fill glass ball with glitter or "snow". Punch a small hole in top of your circle and tie a piece of string or twine that is thin enough to come out the top of ornament once the hook is put back on. roll acetate into a tube and insert into ornament and allow to open, replace hook topper and embellish as desired! the hardest part is waiting for it to dry!!!! Now that is Panda express *wink*  
 Happy creating, and Merry Christmas!
