skating zebra ornaments are my fave

December 18, 2015

Chances are you’ve already trimmed your tree but that doesn’t mean you can’t add some ice skating zebras to it. I’ve tried, but I really can’t think of any style of tree they don’t belong on. Plus, they’re non-crafter friendly and will cost you pennies to make. It’s time to be festive folks.

Steps:

  1. Download and print zebra image. Glue to art board with spray adhesive, which I recommend because it is undetectable under paper and once it’s set, that image will not budge.
  2. Cut around image with Fiskars Amplify Mixed Media Shears. Before I discovered these shears I probably would have tried to handle this step with a razor blade which would have ended in a wonky edge and a flesh wound. These shears cut the board easily because they are designed to cut cleanly through thick and heavy mixed media materials.
  3. With the Fiskars Three-piece Eyelet Setter Set, punch a hole in the board and finish with an eyelet. Or, I used a strong hole punch and the built-in eyelet setter on the Standard Tag Maker. I like the polished look the eyelet gives it.
  4. String each ornament with ribbon or twine then trim your tree with skating zebras, naturally.

    I apologise for any confusion: I meant to write “Friskars” in my prior comment, but I realized too belatedly that my keyboard’s speller altered it to “Friends”, and I had submitted the comment without correction. Once again, I wish to say that your gift tags, as illustrated, were great, and that I plan to use the Friskars gift tag maker in the future as a means to speed up and improve the outcome of creating gift tags. After my daughter made over 1,000 gift tags, by hand with scissors, I can well imagine that hand exhaustion is less of an issue when using the Friskars.
