This weekend I was trying to get caught up with my crafts/presents and still attend a few Christmas parties. I have a few ornaments that I made to share with you today. I am hosting the Bitten By the Bug (BBTB2) challenge this week, which happens to be to use your Cricut to create an ornament or use an ornament cut on your project. I would love to see your hand made ornaments, just use the link to go to our BBTB2 blog, and link up your project.
This first one has a Dollar Store glittered snowflake as the background. I used the Artiste cartridge to create 6 layers and a bow, stacking each layer and adding dimension. It's hard to tell, but the paper is holiday music and red/green holly. I finished off the bow with a gem and Stickles.

Fantabulous Cricut challenge -Anything goes
My 2nd ornament is one that goes to a dear friend who had breast cancer this year. I am also giving one to her daughter and daughter-in-law for their trees. I used the Cricut Artbooking cartridge for the pink ribbon and words: Love, Hope, Strength, 2014. I finished off the top by hot gluing on a piece of pink boa and a ribbon for hanging. It really was quite easy to make, it just took some time to get the letters on straight. I think she'll love it.
