3D Silhouette CAMEO Christmas Ornament Challenge (and a FREE Cut File) - Please Vote!

Not sure if you know this about me - but I like a challenge! That's why when Expressions Vinyl challenged myself and a bunch of other fabulous bloggers to a DIY Christmas Ornament Challenge I knew I had to do it...and I am determined to win (but I need your help!!!)

Silhouette CAMEO, DIY christmas ornaments, paper crafts, 3d paper crafts, silhouette cameo tutorials

To win you have to have the best ornament made using vinyl and to have the best ornament I had to pull out all the stops. So, my friends, I did. I decided to create a 3D cut file from scratch using the soon-to-be-released Silhouette Model Maker software and I think you'll's pretty stinkin' awesome! (So awesome, you're gonna want the cut file, which I am happy to long as you promise to vote for my ornament (#3)...oh and in the meantime you will gain yourself a chance to earn a $100 gift card to Expressions Vinyl.)

PS the prize for the ornament challenge is a Silhouette CAMEO 3 and since I already have one, if I win, I'll use it as a giveaway on Silhouette School!
