Oh the "JOY" of the Big Shot!

I am soooo excited! I was trying to fall asleep last night and was thinking about some of the things I still wanted to do to prepare for my Stamp Club tonight. I am showcasing the Big Shot and wanted to have a few things to show the girls. My brain wouldn't rest. I almost got up to make them last night, but waited til Connor got off to school this morning. I even emailed Stampin' Up! this morning to show them the idea with pictures.
So here's what I came up with!!!! scroll down............

ok....that's enough huh!
This is a metal tape(flashing?) that I bought at the hardware store a few years ago. I cut a long piece and laid it right side down on my Join in the Cheer die cut. Then cut the words out, peeled off the backing tape, and adhered to the glass ornaments! THEN I took the tops off the ornaments, rolled up the Felt Flurries and put them inside! I had to use a paintbrush handle to open them up. So how cool is this?????? I don't know how long the adhesive will hold, so I think I am going to go back and brush on some Crystal Effects on the back as well.

Thanks, Joan for the idea........I was trying to come up with some great reasons for people to not only buy the Big Shot, but also for my Big Shot class that I promoted for Oct and didn't have any clear idea on what I was going to do......This is perfect.
