For Next Year... Part 2 (Initial Ornaments)

These felt ornaments are a great gift
to give friends, family members and neighbors.

Tie on the top of a gift
or give along with some yummy baked goods
for an extra special treat!

Personalized with the first letter of your friend's last name,

and a little glitter

these are sure to be a keepsake for years to come.

To make some initial ornaments of your own...
You will need:
-Felt
-Glitter
-Ribbon
-Glue

Step 1:
Print your desired letters in the size and font of your choice. Cut the letters out to use as your template.

Step 2:
Place the letter right side down on the back of your felt and trace with a marker. Cut the letter out.

Step 3:
Pin the letter you just cut out to a piece of felt. Sandwich a piece of ribbon in between the letter and the piece of felt at the top to form the loop (that will be used to hang your ornament with).

Step 4:
Sew around the edge of the letter with your sewing machine (or by hand)and then trim the back piece of felt so it is even with the front.

Step 5:
Add some sparkle and glitter away!

I bought the felt to make these and I am excited. What font did you use?
