I realized I didn't share with you all that I made for the craft fair. I wish I could say it was a HUGE success for me but it was just an OK one. What matters is I had fun making these projects & I got out & socialized :-)
I bought these at Micheal's and they sold like hot cakes :-)
Fine Point Sharpie Markers
Krylon Clear Glaze
For the hand print ornaments I used craft ink & then embossed with clear embossing powder. For some reason the girl ornaments came off after I sprayed them but was successful with the boys. I had to re-do them using the purple stazon ink which i didn't LOVE, but oh well.
I'm was a little sad that these didn't sell but not THAT sad b/c I REALLY liked them. Now I get to hang the middle one up somewhere in my house :-)

Supplies & Tips
I sanded down the frames first then figured out which paper to use.
Then painted the frames using acrylic paint set aside to dry. You could choose a color that will coordinate with your paper. I used white paint & our re-inkers so that I would have a fairly coordinating color. You have to play around to get the color you want.
After the frames were dry I cut out the middle with my exacto knife.
Apply a thin layer of modge podge to your frame & place your paper on top, smooth out to get rid of any air bubbles.
To give it a finished look I then trimmed off any paper hanging off the edges & sanded them down.
Now you can decorate
Frames 1& 2 I used the new felt flurries (holiday mini pg18) & silver brads. I applied those with a dot of modge podge
Frame 3 I used the pretties kit (ib&c pg185)
Frame 4 I used our new taffeta ribbon (ib&c pg187)
Frames 5 & 6 I used flower fusion (ib&c pg182) & Rhinestone brads (ib&c pg185)
I also edged these frames with 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. I applied with crystal effects.
