Glittered Ornaments With Initials

I have decided that I would like to make an ornament for each member of the family each year.  Last year I bought plain glass ornaments and used some white glitter glue and a silver pen.  The results were OK, but VERY "handmade" looking if ya know what I mean ;)  *LOL*

This year I decided to use the Cricut With The Christmas technique of using floor polish to make the inside of the ornaments sticky, and then adding glitter.  I finished off the fronts with some scalloped circles with the letters of our initials inside!  What a blast!  For those of you with a Cricut, the font is Ashylyns Alphabet.

I had my husband pick his own glitter color, and he made the deciding choice on the font.  That way I feel like he participated!  :)  As the kids get older I want to get us all involved in making ornaments together.

Our initals are fun, they spell things like arts, and rats!  *LOL*  :)  Yes, I'm a dork, but I got a real kick out of that.

I like them. Did you use cardstock or vinyl for the letters? If you used cardstock what kind of glue did you use?

I used cardstock. A thick, shiny type. I used my ATG gun to adhere it. So far it seems to be holding OK.
