Cardstock 3-D Ornament Using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Solid color cardstock with glitter glue embellisments
 About a month ago I made several different ornaments using scrapbook paper and cardstock.  Unfortunately, I forgot all about them when everyone in the family took ill.  I recently discovered a few pictures in my camera and realized that I never posted the pictures or the instructions to make them.

 This ornament was made using the snowflake shape on page 30 of the Art Philosophy cartridge's guide book.  The paper is CTMH cardstock.  The glitter glue and embellishment jewel at the bottom are also from CTMH.

Each piece of cardstock is folded in half
 The shapes are cut at 4".  After folding each piece in half, the pieces are glued on to the other with a piece of ribbon running down through the center of the six segments.  This way the ribbon is encased in cardstock and is only visible on the top and the bottom of the ornament.

Cricut cuts 6 uniform pieces
 This ornament is very inexpensive to make because it uses one piece of cardstock, one bauble, glitter glue, a piece of ribbon and glue for sticking it all together.  It would be an easy project for a child who enjoys gluing!
