This was fun to make....

I made an ornament for a Christmas Secret Sister Swap. I call it's a "reversed decoupage" process. What I did was I photocopies some vintage images at Kinkos. The ink from my printer runs with the modpodge. I use a glass ornaments, the larger ones are better. I used the flat kind in the picture below. Pour a little of the mod podge into the ornament and you need to spread all over the inside of the ornament. I bought long mascara brushed to help me do this. I had already cut the image out, I rolled the image up to fit through the whole and once inside I used the mascara brush to flatten the image out and get the air bubbles out. once the images are all in place pour the finest glitter into the ornament and slowly roll the glittle around the inside the ornament. add another color and do the same. pour out extra glitter and put back the topper and add a bow =D

Thanks! Edwina.
Once you get the hang of it, it's not. Oh, it's really nice if you take a picture and photo copy it and use that as your main image.

I have some of these ornaments and I was trying to figure out what to do with them. I was gonna put the image on the outside after I glittered the inside, but I like your idea better! Very nice!
