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.

  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.

The Fiskars Standard Tag Maker makes it easy to create tags perfect for gifts and other crafts in just three quick, simple steps.

Happy decorating. Happy giving.
