Cutting Cafe Inspiration

Well I just can't stop making these Cutting Café Ornaments. I found another quickie one and I like this one even better than the last.  This was from the same cut file, which was the 3D Ornament Gift Set. I call it a gift set because the box to present them even comes with this file!

 
I used the Echo Park This and That Christmas set to make these. I cut two pages of the file so I could make a front and back, so the ornament would make a full circle.  I glued two circles back to back, then another two, and chose a different patterned paper that I glued on the ornament.,  You would not believe how sturdy this thing is with just those layers.  I was going to put  a flower on it but I didn't want to cover the plaid pattern. I loved how it contrasted with the flower pattern.  So, I opted for a non traditional ribbon color to give it more pop.  Regina is really turning me on to the use of Ribbon in my designs.  Lots to learn though. She is the master!

Head over to the Cutting Café  Blog and find what other ornament inspiration you can find.  You too, may find the perfect thing to fill that hole in your tree that is driving you crazy....lol.

Julie, your ornament turned out very pretty. It looks like it could be hung somewhere, all year round!
