Christmas in July is a prevalent theme this month on many blogs and challenges and so it is fitting that I use this month to show you one of the gifts I made for my momma last Christmas. While the project has been previously made, this is the first time it is appearing on my blog. It is a paper ornament based on a template from Nicecrane Designs.

- I've included a picture of each side of the ornament as it hung from my parent's Christmas tree. Clicking on the image to bring it up in the lightbox will enlarge it to help you see the detail a bit better.
- Victorian Vintage Xmas Ornament: You get the coloured template along with easy to understand instructions. It really makes for a unique, handmade gift.
- Base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.

Now for the Freebie Part...
Ignacio currently has this ornament template on the blog as a freebie and he has given me permission to share the direct link with all of you. So if you can see yourself making one of these Victorian Vintage Xmas Ornament for yourself or someone you know, please click on the watermark below to take you to the FREE DOWNLOAD location.
Now just before you go, please note that the Nicecrane Designs store is currently closed for maintenance but will hopefully be opened up again very soon. When it does reopen, I have another special treat planned for you but you're going to have to be patient because I'm not giving any hints. Hee, hee. You'll just have to keep checking in with me to find out what the surprise is all about.
Now while the store isn't open, the blog is still up and running and providing awesome inspiration; so, be sure to head over to the Nicecrane Designs Blog when you can. If you love vintage, you won't be disappointed.
Well, it is now just coming up on the 7:35 p.m. mark. Time for me to take a break before I get crafty, later on this evening. So many cards and digital ideas in the pipeline. Just a matter of getting to them all.
Have a great evening and day ahead!
Until next time,
