3-d ornament punch

My husband has been out of town so while I was laying in bed late one night wide awake I hopped up and decided to get some 2 am stamping done.  I actually cranked out quite a few items.  The first was an ornament with the ornament punch.  Last year there were tons of samples of ornaments with the scalloped circle punch and I kept meaning to do one but the holiday season came and went and I never got one made.  This year I was determined to get one done.  Well since I lost my craft room I have had to revert to storing my punches in one of those over the door shoe holders, unfortunately mine is not clear.  I reached in for what was supposed to be my scallop circle punch and went to go sit down and punch some out of the Christmas dsp.  Well I accidentally grabbed the Ornament punch, but I thought it would work the same.   And guess what, it did!  Here is the 3-d ornament.

This can be done with any object that is symmetrical along the vertical axis.  Pretty much if it is the same when you fold it in half it should work.
