                Great collection, and as usual I get new ideas from what you all do.
                I like the idea of sandwiched and multi layer ornaments.
                Count me in for next year.

                  With my ornaments, I stack cut six pieces of Baltic birch at the same time. Then my wife took a piece of self-adhesive velum, and attached it to one ornament. She applied glue to the other side of the velum, and glued another oranament to the veulm( covering up the edges of the velum. Then she drizzled glitter into the open spaces on both sides (while the glue was still wet). After the glue dried, she dumped out the extra glitter, and that is what you were left with!

                  She's so much better than I am at thinking things up like that! She's arlreay planning for next year!!!

                    Thanks for that very clear explanation, Bob. That's an interesting technique. Next question - where do you get self-adhesive vellum?

                      My wife is a scrapbooker, so she gets it from scrapbooking stores, or arts and crafts stores like Michaels or AC Moore, or JoAnn Fabrics...

                      We used the self adhesive to save time, you could use any vellum or paper...jsut glue it in place on one side, trim it, and glue it to the other side...

                      Do you think there's an article in it?

                      BTW, for those of you who got last year's ornaments <GRIN>, Stephanie used a "Shaving Cream" technique on them (to get the random colors). You spray out a pile of shaving cream, add a few drops of dye-based colored ink, stir up the pile until you have streaks of color in the white shaving cream.

                      Press the pieces into the shaving cream, pull them out, clean the shaving cream off, and you are left with the random colors.

                        Would someone please post a pic of Bob's ornament from last year.
                        Thanks

                        I will post pics of the ornaments I received, some of them are different then the ones Robert posted.

                          That shaving foam technique sounds fascinating - I'd try it if I had any shaving foam ..lol Maybe your wife should be writing some articles Bob ...

                            A few points to remember on multiple layer ornaments.
                            My original thought and design was 5 layers.
                            for 16 ornaments that is 80 pieces. Not bad because you can stack cut.

                            Mailing presents its own issues. After a certain thickness the cost goes up.
                            If I could have found 1/16 ply locally that would have made the finished project thinner.

                            I opted for 3 layers instead of 5.

                              Don't try shaving gel. at my parents 50th I used shaving gel on their car to draw a heart and put in their initials. Looked really good.


                              Even after the foam was gone.


                              It ate the paint

                              That foam technique sounds like marbling in a way. That is a great idea. Thanks for sharing Bob.

                                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
