Felt Christmas Ornaments

I am so please how these felt Christmas ornaments that I cut using my Silhouette Cameo came out.  I never cut felt I really wasn't sure what to expect, well the cameo really did an awesome job.
These files are all from SVGCuts, this is part of my design team project for the 12 days of Christmas,

I used the regular acrylic felt that come in the 9 x 12 sheets from Joann Fabric Store, nothing fancy, though I heard wool felt cuts even better.  I'm definitely going to make more of these for next year so I'll give the wool a try also.  I used both the Ultra and lite Heat and Bond, the lite for the base pieces because I sewed them by hand and the Ultra for the layered pieces which I ironed on.  It would be cute to sew each layer, but I really don't sew much so this is really a perfect project for me, lol!!

The cute gingerbread man is from the the Warm Gingerbread Cards kit, I was so impressed how it cut the white outline, that's pretty thin.  Some of the tiny circles did cut as good but I was going to use buttons and these dots anyhow.  I used some Berry Trendy Twine and a cute little holly button from Buttons Galore and More.

I love the peppermint, it's actually a card from the Clara Christmas Eve kit.  Here's so of the new Christmas Mint Trendy Twine, and another button from BG&M.

The cardinal is so cute, he'd make a great pillow I think, I may attempt that one day.
He's from the Merry and Bright Kit.  Some more Christmas Mint and button from BG&M.

And the cute little snowman is from Everyday Winter Cards, I used the new Blue Berry Trendy Twine on him.
