ABC Christmas Challenge - U is for...

I have another project for our current ABC Christmas Challenge today, where the theme is:

'U is for...Up to You!'
That's right...anything Christmassy goes!!

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge:


Our very own Lacey, with her awesome Stamp & Create store!


 The prize is a whopping $25 gift certificate - wowee!

and:


Meljen's Designs

Prize: 4 (non-coloured) images from Meljen's Designs!

This time I've made an ornament using papers in shades of blue from the 'Maddison' pad by Penny Black:


I sort of followed this tutorial...but used one of my Nestie circles to cut out all of the circles from my patterned paper...then made an equilateral triangle template from some scrap card, and drew round it on the back of each circle, so I'd know where to fold. Before gluing the whole thing together, I added co-ordinating brads (by BasicGrey) to the top and bottom, attaching a piece of blue and white Baker's Twine (from the Ribbon Girls) to the top one for hanging it on the tree.


I'm also entering this ornament into the following challenges: 
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
