  • I used temporary adhesive (yes, I’m still hoarding my retired Stampin’ Up! Dotto Adhesive) to attach the ornament and pierce around it using the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack.

  • The ornament and 1″ circle were popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals for a 3-D effect.
  • Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon was tied in a bow and adhered with a couple Glue Dots.
  • I LOVE Stampin’ Up! Pearls Basic Jewels.  They are a charming accent for the button and center of the ornament.
