Happy Thursday and welcome to Thursday's Tutorials at FCCB!

Today, I want to share this tutorial on how to make these gorgeous glitter ornaments, by Joy at Everyday Cricut. I have seen several tutorials on these, but this one is super-easy to follow and I love her addition of the word "Joy" on the outside, made with the Cricut Winter Woodlands cartridge.
I made some of these last year using some clear glass square-shaped ornaments, and added photos of my kids to the front. I cut scallop frames from glitter cardstock using my Accent Essentials cartridge and framed the photos for an extra bit of glitter:

Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial!
