How to: Anna’s Holiday Ornaments Cricut Cartridge

Hello, hello!

If you bought the new Crciut Anna’s Holiday Ornaments Cartridge from HSN in October, you are in for a treat today. Inspired by Victorian tussie mussies, this cone shaped ornament is light weight and perfect for filling with your favorite Christmas trimmings. I always hang this type of ornament near the bottom of the tree because Georgie loves to swat at them. Happily, this will not break!

Log into your Design Space account, and let’s make some ornaments! Here is the project URL: https://design.cricut.com/#/design/72584379   (Note: you must register your digital cartridge code in your Cricut.com account before starting the project)
