Gypsy Made Simple - Accordion Ornaments Designed By Bobby Hardgrave - Link Up Your Ornaments Here

Good morning! I am so excited to bring this project to you today. Today I have such a special little project to share with you. Our very own Sassy Dude; Bobby Hardgrave of the Cricut Couple sent me these marvelous accordion Christmas ornaments that he designed just so I could share with you. Thank you - Thank you Bobby from all of us. Now you must check these out.

 Bobby made three individual designs. And each one is so beautiful I just can't get over how nice these are. I hope my photos express how beautiful and intricate these are.

All of these ornaments were created from the CTMH Art Philosophy cart. And Bobby was so kind he even shared the file with us. And for you Design Studio lovers I converted the file just for you!

This is my favorite shape I just love how intricate this one is.
Now I had to cut a set of my own so you can see just how perfect this file cuts. Don't you just love these?

This is my mat before and after the tree ornaments were cut. See how it lines up on the mat and it cut so easy.... I just love cuts like this.

This is just so you can see how the ornaments layout. Notice the one is a full 4 inches wide! They are a wonderful size.

This is a close up of the ornament inside accordion. Notice how it folds?

Now isn't this just too much fun? I had so much fun putting this little project together. Here is a photo of the finished sign. It will  be great for hanging inside the house like in the foyer as an example. I think the colors of this sign go perfect with the ornaments that Bobby sent, don't you?

Isn't this just too cute? There are so many projects that you could make using these wonderful ornaments, I just can't wait to see what you do with them.

Well wasn't that an easy design? The amazing thing about our Gypsy is that we can touch a few little buttons, stretch here, scrunch there and we make magic. This is a great example of that. If you would like a copy of this Gypsy file click HERE. I am sorry but I could not get my Design Studio to convert this file so please follow the instructions and you should be able to make on you own as it is a simple design.
Now I challenge you to make an ornament any kind of ornament and link it up. Make sure you link up your ornaments to this post by 3PM on Friday November 4 and you could win a beautiful personalized monogram note card set (color may vary). The winner will be announced at 5AM on the 5th.I sure hope you enjoyed this project. I thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. You comments continue to inspire me to keep sharing with you. Also please give a big thank you to Bobby Hardgrave of the Cricut Couple for sharing his wonderful file with us.

Hi Sheila...I was reading your blog info and noticed you're originally from Chicago. I'm not from Chicago but a transplant from Warsaw, Indiana which is about 250 miles from Chicago...traveled it to visit sister and family, and also my son when he had resided in the western suburbs of Chicago. Moved here to Scottsboro, AL ... 50 miles from Huntsville, AL. Love your ornaments but I I do not have a gypsy but will read the instructions. Thank you for sharing.
