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.
