Anything Goes challenge at Eureka

Today's anything goes challenge I made an ornament from the Christmas ball digi.
This is one of those projects that I saw in my head when I saw the image.  I am so tickled with how it turned out.  Isn't is wonderful when things look just like they did in your head?  
I cut 12 of the images out, 6 of them are mirrored.  I let my cameo cut them for me, my hands just can't take much scissor cutting these days. I'm so spoiled by my machine.
 I colored all of them trying to color them identically, cut them out, folded each one in half being careful to line up the circle's edges. I suggest doing the folding by hand, I attempted to use my score board and it was just too hard to score the correct line.
After I had them all folded, I alternated the pieces so the bows were back to back and glued them all in a stack.  I let it sit for a bit making sure the glue was all dry. While that was drying I got my bow made and hanging pieces.  I used ribbon from 3 Girl Jam and some tiny jingle bells. Then I put glue on the top ornament piece and opened the stack securing the bottom of the stack to the glued top piece and a ball is formed!  I added a glob of glue at the top and the bottom to hold the ribbon in place along the spine of the stacked pieces.
I hope that makes sense.  I always think about a tutorial after the fact...sorry.
Now it's your turn!  Head over to the blog to see what the rest of the design team has made for your inspiration.
