Sherri Baldy's My Besties 3D Ballerina Christmas Decoration

For the next two weeks at My Besties 3-D Deco Challenge blog we have another great challenge for you!

The theme is, Christmas Decorations

To participate in our My Besties 3D challenges go here:

For this project i am using a My Besties 3D sheet called Garden Nellie found at Sherri Baldy's Scrapbook Stamp Society here

Side view showing the 3D layers:
This ornament is double sided.  I printed the image off two ways. One way was how i received it and then the other way i flipped it horizontally.  I did the 3D and sandwiched the two together.  I added an acrylic strip between the two completed images, it accomplishes two things..support for her tiny neck when cut out and i also extend the acrylic to go beyond her head so that i can tie the ribbon on for a hanger.  I covered up the acrylic with a bow on both sides (front and reversed side (back)).  To make the skirt i cut two lengths of tulle to make two skirts, placing the two sections together i then hand sewed a gathering stitch.  I placed the skirt between the two layers like the acrylic.  Made a bow for both sides at the waist and attached them.  I then embellished the 3D image with Stickles..and that's it..a sweet little ornament.

These sheets are fun and easy to use!  They are all pre-colored for you, all you do is print out your sheets, cut out the pieces you wish to use and layer them with foam tape, foam dots/squares or Silicone glue.
