Beary Christmas Ornament

We had a quick workshop just before Christmas to create a few Christmas things.  One of the projects was a Christmas ornament made with Beary Christmas paper and the new Gold Foil paper.  I think this is a fun tradition--to make a special ornament each year.  The cutting files came from Dreaming Tree's Merry Christmas Ornaments Bundle.

Here is the ornament:

Here is a picture that shows the ornament lighted with a mini candle inside.

Here is a look at the top of the ornament:

And a look at the back of the ornament where you can add a little electronic candle.

Papers:  Beary Christmas Papers, x5975 Cranberry Cardstock, z3365 Gold Foil Paper; z3367 Vellum Paper
Embellishments:  Red Sparkles (Retired)
Other:  Dreaming Tree SVG Merry Christmas Ornament Bundle files with Cricut Design Space

Leo K. of Dreaming Tree has very good instruction videos and I really enjoyed constructing this ornament.  Here is a picture of the Bundle that Leo created:

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  

Happy 6th Day of Christmas!
