Lately I've been experimenting with acrylic material (plexiglass) and I've seen these great ornaments that people have been making. Me being me, I wanted to try making one but since a lot of people nowadays have cutting machines, what would make mine different? Then I got my aha moment, my calligraphy! I LOVE drawing custom calligraphy since it helps me practice my lettering and it makes someone else really happy to receive it. I gotta say, it ended up turning out better than I thought! ..Add some lively paint to the back et voila, a custom ornament that just feels so me.
My mom gave me input that I should be creative when it came to the packaging as well. Having used so much cardstock for my masks, I wanted to try doing something more sustainable and reduce my waste. So I watched a couple of videos and sewed my own little ornament bag (reminds me of a little version of Santa's bag) and added more custom vinyl, and I gotta say, I'm pretty happy with the product!
If you've been following me on my instagram @megcrisol you know I always preach about loving the process, and I really loved the whole process of getting to the final product :) (see process photos below).
Thanks for letting me share my passion with you,
stay safe & stay happy,
P.S I'll be sharing my time-lapse videos of my hand lettering soon!
