It's All About Ornaments for The Cutting Cafe

One week until Christmas, crafty friends! Our design team assignment this week for The Cutting Café is to use any one of a variety of files, all of them ornament related.  I've actually sent all my Christmas cards several weeks ago, and hand delivered quite a few more, so I wanted to make something OTHER than a card.  I decided to make something that would help make our living room look more festive. Using the Christmas Ornament Fun cutting files from The Cutting Café, I created this:
This 3D ornament is one of the nesting ornaments that comes with the Christmas Ornament Fun set.  I used the one that was just slightly smaller than 6 inches, so I could use 6x6 papers for the ornament.  I used 4 different papers (My Mind's Eye This & That Christmas -- both 6x6 and 12x12), cutting the shape out four times, creasing them with a bone folder down the middle, and gluing one side together.  I then cut the same shape one size larger and mounted the 3D ornament to it.  I cut an 8x10 piece of chipboard, mounted an 8x10 piece of patterned paper to it, glued down my ornament, added a charm and a bow (made from Ribbon Candy Ribbon from 3 Girl JAM), put it in an 8x10 frame, and my artwork was done!
Thanks for visiting today! Happy holidays!
