Cricut Circle Ornament Challenge

Please be kind.  I know that the video quality is not wonderful here, but I really wanted to show exactly what this ornament can do.  I used my gypsy quite a bit in this project.  I started with a square box from bags tags boxes and more, but I just couldn't get the house to weld to the box in a way that woud really work.  So, I placed a square box on layer 1 then opened a new layer (with layer 1 visable and basically used it as a pattern) I used basic shapes to form the sides of the box and the bottom then welded the house to two of the sides to create a box with no lid.  I had to make the lid by hand with a ruller and lots of glue but I think it worked out just fine.  I also used a bit of cuttlebug to emboss the house (retro kitchen stripes) to look like siding, and the little trees are also from CB dies.  Here are a few pictures of the final project, but I will be uploading a video as well- not a tutorial, just a highlight of the features.  Thanks for stopping by.
