Vintage Mantle Ornament

     I tried something completely new today and I love the result, although it's extremely difficult to photograph.  A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to win a new die set from Pixie's Snippets Playground.  Here's a photo of the die.

     Although the die is intended to be used to make accordion cards, I used it to cut 4 sides of a Victorian Christmas ornament made to stand on a table or mantlepiece.

     The best part is that it will fold flat for mailing or storage.  I printed four different vintage girls, printing each one twice, so that I could add them to the swing flaps, both front and back.  The overall size is about 5.5 inches square on each side.
