Floating Nativity Ornament

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I'm sharing a floating ornament I made using the Nativity CF from Paper Crafting World.
I made several ornaments last year and really enjoy giving them as gifts.  When I saw Melin's Nativity cut file, I knew it would be perfect for a floating ornament.

To create the ornament you need a transparency sheet ( left over from years of teaching), vinyl (I used Oracal 651 glossy), and a clear glass ornament (mine is from Hobby Lobby).

I have a cut file for the ornament-shaped transparency and just cut it out using the sticker sheet setting with the blade set at 1.  Actually I cut out an entire page of them so that they'll ready when I want to make more.  I used transfer tape to lift the Nativity off the vinyl backing and adhere it to the ornament shape.  I poured some sequins into the ornament (tried glitter first and it stuck everywhere I didn't want it LOL) and then rolled the transparency around a pencil and placed it in the ornament.  It opens on it's own and you can move it using tweezers if you need to.  Some glitter tape, a hanger, and a bow finished this simple project.  I think it's very pretty.

The PCW Design Team will be posting throughout December so be sure to check in with us often.  Our monthly challenges will return in January. 

I hope you're enjoying the holidays.  It's a crazy wonderful time and busy, busy, busy.  I'll be posting occasionally until the New Year.  Then my design teams will return to full speed.
