Vintage Christmas Ball Pyramid - Nicecrane

I'm here tonight to share with you some creations that I made that are totally different from my usual creations!  I made some Christmas ornaments!!!!  I got some fabulous digis from Nicecrane designs.  Don't know if you know that digi store?!?  But if you don't you really should check it out.  It's pretty amazing.  And they have a great blog with inspiration that you can follow here.  They share some pretty amazing freebies.  So if you don't know them I highly suggest that you go and have a look!  Please don't forget to say thank you ;o)

So I just had to try this out!!!  The Vintage Christmas ball Pyramid sheet comes with 2 set of images.  I decided to double the printing so that I could do a Ball that would have the same image on both side.  It's pretty easy to do.  You cut out the template and then layer up the pieces using some foam pop up.

Here's the preview of the set  So exciting that it's my make that's used as the preview ;o)
Vintage Christmas Ball (Pyramid Style) I
I used some cardstock that came with a package as a base for both of these.  I was really wondering how I would take pictures of these... and then I remembered my banana rack lol it worked!!!

So I fussy cut the image 6 times.  It comes in little circles prenumbered... so you really can't mess it up.  I punched a hole and added a little ribbon from my stash.  I also put stickles on the side to add interest.

Here's a closer look at the digis
And the side view so you see the nice depth
And here's the 2nd one I did!  It went better than the 1st since I knew a bit more what I was doing lol.
And the closer look
I'm really really liking these!!!!  I'm thinking that I could also use them to embellish my Christmas bags!!!!  If you haven't check out this store I highly suggest you do!
