Cricut Vintage Ornament
Before I made this one, I practiced first and it is a good thing I did! I made this one below first to try my hand at it and to see the size. The size was much too big for my liking, so I made it smaller.
With the Cricut, you need to change the dash lines to score if you don't want cuts plus you need to ATTACH them together or else the score lines will try to go on a separate mat. I am not sure why the files come in from SVGCUTS that way, but they do.
(If you have a Silhouette Designer Edition or Sure-Cuts-A-Lot, you don't need to do this. The program keeps them together for you.)
I chose pink papers as that is the color of my tree ornaments this year. The rose, pine needles and leaves were made from the Cricut.
Flower: Flower Shoppe
Pine Needles: Martha Stewart Seasonal Cakes
Leaves: Vintage Wedding
I also added Nuvo Mousse to the light green leaves, and a center line with my Sakura Silver Star Gelly Roll pen. To the rose, I added chunky glitter to add more dimension and to give it a more vintage look. I added lace to the seams as I felt they needed to be covered. That is actually how I ended up with a vintage ornament. I'm glad I did though! I scrunched the ribbon and added Prima Bloom Spray to add a bit of sheen. The pearl loops and feathers were purchased from my local dollar store. The charm was ordered online from ebay and the glass charm is from Michaels.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed Christmas!
