Paper Ornament Tutorial.....

Nog 11 dagen en dan is het alweer eerste kerstdag, waar blijft die tijd....ongelovelijk zo hard
dat het gaat. Voor dat het zover is wil iedereen natuurlijk zijn huis helemaal omtoveren in de
gezellige kerstsfeer, en wat mag er dan eigenlijk niet ontbreken.....iets wat je zelf heb gemaakt.

De tutorial die ik jullie ga brengen is van Asley Horton, designer by American Crafts.
Lets start.....oke!!!

Begin by cutting your 12x12 sheet of paper into 3x3 aquares. This will give you 16 squares and
you will use all of them to create the cones for the ornament.
Next roll your paper squares into a cone shape en secure the corner with a piece of clear tape
along the backside. I flattened the skinny ends of my cone shapes to keep them from
making the center of the ornament too bulky.
The easiest way to begin placing the cones is to cut or punch out a circle shape. I cut my circle
at 4 inches and then began placing the cones in a cross shape to make sure I end up with an
even edge once all the of the pieces were in place.
Continue to fill in the next open space with a second cross shape.
The final cone shaped pieces will need to be placed in the open spaces over the top of your
base cone pieces. This will fill in the empty gaps and help create some dimension on your
ornament.
I wanted to add some layers to my ornament, so I cut the leaf shape on my cameo and added
some sparkle to it bu applying Zazz Glitter Glue over some of the leafs shapes.
Once the glitter glue has dried you can assemble the pieces of your ornament. I also added to
some Zazz to the holly leaves die cut shape for extra sparkle. You can attach a ribbon bow to
the backside of your ornament for hanging it on your Christmas tree.

This ornament can be a great additon to your own Christmas decor or make a great gift for
family or friends.

Merry Christmans everyone!!!!!
