I had a couple of challenging requests for the ornaments.
Pete the cat is well...ugly. I had no idea what to do for this one and spent a good two hours searching images. Silly me for not asking my youngest who knows Pete and said "His snow book, mom!" I found the image from Pete the Cat: Snow Day and printed it multiple times, and with mirror image printing. I cut Pete shoveling snow and then cut the shovel and his head out of another print, using dimensionals to make a multi-layered image. I did this to both sides so it didn't matter which way the ornament turned. I added some glitter to the snow and shovel then used hot glue to get Pete to stand inside the plastic ball. Last, I added glitter snow and mini pom-poms for snowballs.
Next was Curious George. I ended up finding this great image of a craft where he is hanging from balloons. The balloons were a separate element and easy to leave out. I shrunk the image, and printed it as I did with Pete. I only used dimensionals on his head to make it stand out. I used clear nylon sewing thread to make him hang from the top of the ball so he will look like he is hanging off a tree branch. Then I added glitter snow and pom pom snow balls to the bottom, before sealing the ball with liquid glass and adding the hanging ribbon.
Last, is Harry the Dirty Dog. I could not find any really good images of Harry, so I used the book cover and printed it like the other ornaments. I cut the dogs separately and added them with dimensionals, then glued the book into the ball and sealed it. I also made a Amelia Bedelia book the same way.
I somehow missed pictures of the Giving Tree (I made an actual book with tiny pages).
Thanks for looking! April
