12 Days of Christmas Ornaments

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  I sooo love the Christmas season.  It is always a flurry of ideas about decor, crafts, and cooking - I never seem to get through all of my creation dreams.

But I am determined to post at least the stuff I actually do end up making...!

And first is my 12 Days of Christmas ornaments.

Using just a few shapes from the Silhouette online store, these came together quickly, and are a great gift idea.
Shapes used:
3" circles - I cut these out of music pages.  I didn't have the 12 Days of Christmas on hand, but how cute would that be?
Echo Park Award Ribbon - I cut these out of silver glitter paper at 3.5" round, making two for each ornament (a front and a back)
Then using the 12 Days of Christmas shapes, I cut four out of red paper, four out of green, and four out of black.  Since these are intricate cuts, I double cut them, and it really helped.  The shapes vary by size, so I had to size them to make sure they each fit (mostly) onto the 3" circles.
Then, using Coneria Script font, I cut numbers out of double-sided adhesive.
Then it was just a matter of layering.  And getting big sister to help me with glittering the numbers.

*Caveat, I highly suggest playing Christmas music other than The 12 Days of Christmas while making these ornaments...I cannot get that song out of my head now!  :)*

Merry Christmas and happy crafting everyone!
