Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Christmas Ornament

Hello, friends!

Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Christmas Ornament

Before I tell you about today's project I wanted to announce the next giveaway!
cricut paty cartridge giveaway
This ornament was made for this week's Bitten By the Bug challenge. I have never made an ornament from scratch before, so this was really outside of my comfort zone. 

I made the ornament using the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent and Art Philosophy cartridges. To make this particular project exactly as I made it, you will need to use my Explore file. Unfortunately, the file will not open. It is something Cricut is working on, so hopefully at some point soon I can post the file. 

I used a plastic clear ornament and just used one side for the front. The back is completely backed by the scalloped circle cut. The inside is a card cut that I sliced into a circular shape. Then I added some chunky glitter.

That is such a cute ornament. It might be outside your comfort zone but you nailed it! Too bad the file can't be shared but for now, it's uniquely yours. And that makes it even more special.
Hope you have a great week! :)

Pretty ornament. I have used the plastic snap apart ornaments bought at Michaels and they are great. Made 2 with items inside using both pieces of the ornament. Not done one like yours but want to give it a try. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

What a cute ornament. I like the use of the glitter to add dimension to it. Can you show how to slice something in a circle like you did on the Explore?
