Today I created some ornaments for my nieces using the floating ornament technique.
I started with my Cameo:

I sized a soccer ball and a volleyball to fit the insert for my glass ornament.  I also created their names and sized them to fit across each ball.

I cut the balls out of black vinyl. I cut their names out of red vinyl (team colors).

I cut the ornaments shapes out of acetate using the Rhinestone Template setting on my cameo. 

I put the ball on one side of the acetate, and the name on the other.

I trimmed the top of the acetate off because it was too tall and would stick out the top of my ornament.

You can see the black volleyball is on the back side.

I rolled the acetate around a pencil and slid it into the ornament.

Instead of putting the names on the acetate, you could have put them on the outside of the ornament.

I added ribbons in her team colors to the top.

I did the same with Sabryna's ornament using the soccer ball and her name.

The acetate could have been a tad bit smaller.  I made Sophie's first and you can see it the acetate is not lying flat inside the ornament.  I trimmed Sabryna's a tiny bit and hers lays flat.

This was my first time trying this and I don't think it will be the last :)

OMG, Lori, these are adorable. This technique - well, it's an old one. I made these ornaments years ago but with a picture inside. It wasn't easy getting the photo inside, but it worked. Your ornaments are terrific.
