Lockdown Christmas Acrylic Ornament 2020 – sublimation printed. The digital design used was created by Beejui Creations on the Affinity Designer program.

These were popular and a great reminder of our first ever Christmas spent in lockdown 2020. Hopefully though, Christmas’s going forward will not be like 2020 without seeing all our family and loved ones. I hope this ornament will act as a reminder to cherish each and every moment surrounded by our loved ones at Christmas time.

Sublimation Process:

Firstly you will need a Sublimation Acrylic Blank. Please make sure the acrylic is cast not extruded as extruded does not work with the sublimation process. The ones shown in the pictures for example are 8cm Acrylic 3mm thick discs in white from Woodform Crafts. Here is the link:

Secondly you will need a design to print. You can use any design you like but for the above I designed my own PNG file in Affinity designer. Once you have picked a design, print it out and tape the design onto the acrylic blank using heat tape. Then use a heat press to set the design onto the acrylic circle.

The heat settings I use for this are 180C for 180sec. When the heat press has finished, place the acrylic under a heavy object until it is cool. This will prevent the acrylic from warping. Also just to add, the sub paper sometimes sticks to the acrylic or leaves a dull finish. Therefore, to remove this use a washing up sponge, warm water and scrub the printed surface, this should fix it.

Lastly, you will need approximately 15cm of ribbon or cord to make the hanger for your ornament. I prefer the cord for a neater finish so I used cord from Hobbycraft, link below.

To clarify this Christmas ornament project was created on a Cricut Maker.

Materials

Firstly, you will need an acrylic blank ornament. The ornament shown in the pictures for example, is a mirrored or white 8cm Acrylic 3mm thick circle from Woodform Crafts. Here is the link:

Rose Gold Mirrored – https://www.woodformcrafts.co.uk/product/10-x-rose-gold-mirror-acrylic-8cm-hanging-circle-wc1061/

White – https://www.woodformcrafts.co.uk/product/10-x-white-acrylic-8cm-hanging-circle-wc1061/

Secondly, you will need a Cricut machine – Shop Cricut and you will need to customise the file in Cricut Design Space – Cricut Design Space™. Subsequently, to access this you may need a Cricut Access subscription. Link to my file:

Note: This design file contains a non-Cricut font for Christmas and the names. You can change the font to one you already have access to, or download the font I have used. The font used is called ‘Alberto’ and you can download this free from Fontbundles.net, here is the link:

Before clicking ‘Make it’ hide the 8cm back circle and select all of the design, then WELD.

Furthermore, you will also need a 10cm piece of permanent vinyl for this project. This is the link for the vinyl I have used in this project (I used the black sheets out of this pack)

Process

Start the project by loading the Cricut machine with the mat and vinyl then press start to cut. Above all please make sure that you use the correct material settings for the vinyl being used.

As soon as the Cricut has finished cutting, eject the mat and carefully remove the cut vinyl sheet. At this stage you can proceed to weed your design.

TIP: for small writing, intricate designs etc. place transfer tape over the whole design before weeding it. Turn the design over, take the backing paper off and weed straight off of the transfer sheet. As a result this keeps all the tiny letters firmly stuck down and stops them moving about.

Lastly, you will need approximately 15cm of ribbon or cord to make the hanger for your ornament. I prefer the cord for a neater finish, links for both the cord and organza ribbon are below:
