Sassy ornament with a tutrorial

Hello wonderful people and welcome to my new followers!! How are you today? Well, I hope!  For today's post  I  wanted to share with you how I made the ornament that went with my picnic basket found here. Here's today's finished ornament ...

and if you want to make your own like this you will need:

1  image(I used Simply Sassy Puppy Love)
Spellbinders Nestabilities:
Large Circles-largest one
Lacey Circles-largest one
lightweight cardboard(I recycled a waffle box)

First you will need to cut and color or vice versa your stamped image with the large circle die. Second cut out one each of two different colors(or different shades of same color) and one cardboard piece with the large lacey die.

Choose which of the two colors will be the back color on your ornament and attach it to the cardboard piece...if your recycling like I did make sure the designed side is the one getting the tape as the other will be seen. Now place the remaining lacey piece evenly on top of that piece then turn until the colors are every other like this...

Now you can hold one side and tape the other then switch Next, center your image on top of your collective lacey pieces and tape down. Flip it over and apply a looped hanging string of sorts(ribbon or whatever) to the back. Next, again using the large circle die cut a circle out of your cardboard and place it centered on the back to hid the ribbon that doesn't need to be seen. If you used something a little thicker and have a pretty rounded trim and some pop up dots you can put the trim around the edge of the circle and the dots somewhere central before putting it on the back, like this...

Well, that's all for me today, hope you've enjoyed my mini tutorial. Also in case you missed it yesterday, you really should check out the giveaway I have going on at that post here. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!
