Another ornament

The last ornament I shared used 2" squares of paper and made a good size ornament. My guess (without getting a ruler, because I am lazy today) is that it is more than 4" across. So, I thought I would try some 1 1/2" squares. I like the finished size alot more...around 3". But, those tiny squares are fiddlier for sure!

I used DCWV paper to make this one. I wish more of the pattern showed. In the future, I will use busier papers with less white space on them. After I got them cut, I used Fiskars Threading Water punch to do the corner of each one. Formed the cones and let them dry. Brushed glue over the outsides and sprinkled with clear glitter. Let dry. Brushed glue inside each one and covered with garnet glitter. Let dry. I used my Nestabilities circles to cut a small scalloped circle and the second size from smallest circle in green. I glittered with scalloped circle and set it aside to dry. I assembled the ornament by gluing each cone to the circle. This time, I had the openings of the cones facing up instead of down like the blue ornament. Set aside to dry.
I took a gawdy silver plastic snowflake and brushed it with glue and covered it with garnet glitter. I let it dry and then touched up and spots that needed more glitter. I used a red sharpie to cover any silver that was peeking out on the edges. Adhere it to the green piece and let dry. I attached this to the center of the ornament with two layers of foam tape. Glue a rhinestone to the center of the snowflake and tie a ribbon to the top hole. Hang on your tree!
