Did you know this cute little ornament is actually hiding a dark and well kept secret? It's true.
It's actually sitting atop a very handy dandy [and thoroughly washed] plastic juice container. Why you say?
Well, when I finish an ornament and secure it in it's hoop I trim the edge of the fabric and glue it to the inside edge of the hoop with an archival adhesive. I like the fabric to stay put while the glue dries and these Old Orchard juice containers happen to fit perfectly inside a 3 inch hoop. They keep the fabric nice and snug against the hoop as the adhesive dries then they slide right off when it's done. I'm guessing I'm not the first to have found a little household item that doubles as a crafting tool. So let's hear it, what works for you?
