Christmas Sun Catcher By Pinky!
November 27, 2012
Good morning and Happy Holidays!
Pinky here with a fun Christmas project.
I thought I would try to create a few different projects this year and I started by using the Clear Scraps Tree Mini Album to make this Christmas window hanger or Sun Catcher! You could definitely hang these on the tree too!
I just took the Clear Scrap Mini Trees and used Copper and Gold enamel powder- heat embossing them VERY carefully so they bent for texture but did not completely curl up and melt.
You really have to take your time and work with them gently.
After that I added some Clearsnap Glitter to create a snowy look on the edges.
Then I punched holes in the bottom of each one, and strung them with gold mesh ribbon.
After that I added metal snowflakes from Momenta, I added them on each side.
Then I threaded a Crystal Sun Catcher through the bottom and placed a gold bow over. Not only is it a great sun catcher but it is 2 sided and perfect for the holidays.
How versatile are these mini albums? I think I could create with them for years!
Until next time, Happy Holidays to you!

Very cool that you heat set the enamel on the acrylic. I've always been to chicken to try that!
