Snowman Christmas Ornament!

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week-end!  I was browsing threw some blogs and came across this fabulous tutorial using a toilet paper roll, to make an ornament, imagine that!  If you are interested you can find the tutorial here.

Isn't it adorable, and hard to believe it's a toilet paper roll!  I used an image from Michelle Perkett's etsy store, and it's called "Snowman With Heart".  The image comes with a lovely sentiment, which reads, "Give the gift of your heart to those you love, today and everyday!", but unfortunately, it didn't fit on the ornament.  Here is a picture of the reverse side.

I just got the Winter Wonderland Cricut cartridge, which I used, to make this multi-layered snowflake, and then added a large gem for the center.  Here is a close up of the snowflake's layers.

There is so much you could do with this ornament.  I don't have much christmas supplies at the moment, so I was limited with what I could use, but I intend on making more of them.  I hope you will give it a try!

Don't forget Michelle Perkett is currently running a challenge on her blog, and the theme is Girly with Bling!  I hope you will join us this week, and maybe you will be the lucky winner of one of Michelle's gorgeous digital stamps!

I am also entering this ornament in the following challenges:
Charisma Card - Challenge #39 Christmas Crafting.
Totally Paper Crafts - Challenge #36 The Great Outdoors!
