Here is a close up photo...

You can use the McGill 1" Stacking Circle punch to create a smaller ornament and connect the two together with a few jump rings or you can even create them bigger with the McGill 2" and 2.5" Stacking Circles.

These are so easy to create that you can also string these on ribbon, yarn etc. to create a chain or garland for your tree, mantle etc. 

I  hope you like them and create lots of them... Be sure to link us up if you do.  We would love to see how you use these to decorate your home.
