My husband and I take a lot of pictures. Our walls can only hold so many picture frames, so I try to find other creative ways to display them. I wanted to do something special with this picture of my little guy playing in the snow. By putting it on a blank wooden ornament, I’ll be reminded of that memory every year while it hangs on our Christmas tree.
The PixScan™ mat makes projects like this so easy. I just placed the ornament on the PixScan™ mat and took a picture with my phone.
Once I uploaded it to Silhouette Studio® I traced the snowflake shape and created an internal offset.
With the perfect snowflake shape ready to use, I opened up the picture in Silhouette Studio®. It only takes a couple of clicks to crop a picture into whatever shape you choose. With the picture and the shape selected, open the modify window and click on crop. So easy!
I added the let it snow design for the back of the ornament, turned on registration marks, and printed the designs on white adhesive cardstock. Not only do I love the look of photos printed on adhesive cardstock, but it saves me a trip to the store to have them printed. The Print & Cut feature is such a time saver.
The adhesive cardstock sticks really well to the wood, but you could definitely seal it with something if you wanted.
The ornament looks great hanging our on our tree. They were so easy to put together I even made a few extras to gift to family. I think they’ll adore them as much as I do!
