Add a strip of adhesive to the bottom of the church die cut to hold it in place behind the circle.
- Turn the Whisper White cardstock over and add adhesive all around the circle opening. Also use a fine tip glue pen add glue to the village pieces themselves. Stick the sponged square to the back of the scalloped circle, making sure that the sponged side will face forward.
- Using a fine tip glue pen, add adhesive to the back of the navy scalloped circle border. Lining up the scallops, place it on the inside of the scalloped circle that contains the village scene.

- Tie a small bow from 1/8″ gold ribbon. Trim the ends.
- Use a mini glue dot, adhere one of the ribbon trimmings to the center of the top of your village scene ornament. Run the ribbon straight up to the top of the edge of the cardstock and secure on the backside.
