G45 Halloween Ornament with Lori

Today I have a fun project for you - and while mine is for Halloween, Graphic 45's papers are all well-suited to a project like this.  One of my favorite things about their papers are all the fun images that are perfect for fussy cutting.  And since you get two sheets of each design, you can cut the entire image from one sheet, and just portions from the other sheet for some awesome layering!

I started with another fabulous find from a local Goodwill, some Happy Haunting papers from Graphic 45, a Scor-pal and some Stickles.

Since I was using a 12x12 paper pad, I was able to use one of the sheets with smaller images on it.  With an 8x8 pad, I would just choose a sheet with a larger image (or make a smaller ornament).  First, I cut a base image in a circle to fit the center of my Goodwill tray (I used the Center Point feature on my Cricut to get the portion of the image that I wanted), then I cut portions of a second image which I could pop up on some 3-D foam adhesive.  I cut 2 strips of the fence paper, being sure to have the "Halloween" sentiment at the upper edge.  I used the Scor-pal to score both strips every 1/2", adhered them together and created a rosette.  I mounted my circle image in the center and adhered the whole thing to the center of the tray.  I added my "pop-up" portions of my image using foam tape, and I glittered it all up using Stickles.  Lastly, I used some ribbon from my stash to make a bow and a hanger.

You can see in this view where the "pop-up" pieces are, and where I added the Stickles on the hat, broom, coat, and cat's bow.

I hope you enjoyed today's project!  I'd love to hear your comments!
