DIY Photo Christmas Ornaments with Epson LabelWorks Printer


I am super excited to be sharing a fun Christmas ornament craft with you today. 
I will be making a photo ornament that is easy to do and would make great gifts for the grand parents :)
You will need:
Assorted colors of cardstock
Printer
Glue stick or glue dots
ribbon of your choice for bow
Epson LabelWorks Printer
Die Cutting machine or scallop punches in various sizes


Please note that you don't have to make them scalloped. If you have circle or oval punches please use them.

The good folks over at Epson provided me with this neat printer to print on the ribbon. 
I love that you can make so many things with this including:
baby shower tags and ribbons
wedding shower favors
Halloween bag ties
Christmas crafting
scrapbooking 
and so much more!
The Epson LabelWorks Printer
is so easy to use. Enhance your ribbons with frames, font changes, repetition symbols, create vertical text and so much more!




Here is just one way to use this awesome little printer.
Use your die cutting machine or pre cut scalloped punches in the following sizes:
3 inch for the base 
3.5 inches for the glitter frame (x2)
photo 2 inches or so to fit into the base
Once you have cut your shapes 
type in your sentiment into the Epson LabelWorks Printer
In this example I chose "vertical" and "repeat 5 times" this way it would make a longer ribbon with the sentiment repeated 5 times. 
Now I cut it and assemble my ornament. 
I took the two glittered pieces and glued the ribbon to one of them then glued them together so as to "sandwich" the ribbon between them. 
Then I took some glue dots and put them on the back of the black shape and adhered to the glittered shape.
Next, I took my photo shape and did the same. 
I hot glued the ends at the top of the ribbon to allow for hanging.
I then made a cute little silver bow and hot glued to the front of the ornament. 
Easy peasy!

 See the ribbon printed with Christmas 2015? I even added a snowflake that is included in the machine. 




Just a simple craft to get you started :)
I'll be using this cute little printer for some more holiday 
crafting so make sure to come back to learn more about it. 

until next time
xoxo
