I had a little mishap…twice! Facebook Live was really not working well for me one week. I was in the middle of live videos twice that week and they both quit on me. I was upset that I could not save them and load them to YouTube like I normally do. I’ve been so busy with Dave’s cancer appointments that I just couldn’t squeeze in, doing them again.
The first ornament uses the Snow Globe Shaker Dome as a two-sided ornament. The photo below shows you both sides. Isn’t that the neatest project ever?
This ornament is a little bit of work, but oh so worth it. I created two layers of paper cones and glued them to a paper circle, added some ribbon and a sentiment on the back:
The cones are very easy to achieve. The two measurements I used are 1″ x 1″ and 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″. I used the Toile Tidings Designer Paper. It’s neat how one side is Real Red and the opposite side is Garden Green. Both colors appear as you create the cones.
To create the cones, I used a paint brush handle to curl the designer paper. By curling it first, the paper gets a little softer to handle. Add a small drop of hot glue and layer two corners on top of each other as seen in photo #2:
Depending on how tightly the cones are created will depend on how many you need for your ornament. I started out with 14 of each size. Cut a circle with the 2″ Circle Punch and glue the ribbon at the top into a loop. Glue the larger cones in place first with the hot glue (which will also cover the ribbon). Next, add the smaller cones on top, layered:
To finish off the front, stamp the sentiment using Real Red Ink and cut with the 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. Add hot glue to the center of the ornament to fill the hole and place the sentiment layer in the center:
For the back, cut Real Red Cardstock with the Starburst Punch and glue over the circle in the back. Stamp the sentiment using Real Red Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and cut with the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch and glue to starburst:
