Festive Friday - Blog Hop #3


 Welcome back to Festive Friday! This is my 3rd Christmas creation to share with you. I truly meant for this to be a card...but my imagination got away with me and it became a oversized ornament instead! Don't you just love it?
To make this, I used Olive Fleur double sided paper, Red Glitter Paisley cardstock,  Red,Gold,Silver metallic dew drops in a bottle. Red trim, and champagne stickles, pre cision scissors and tacky glue.
Begin by drawing by hand or using a die to make 3 different sizes of circles onto the plain side of a cereal box, or something of that thickness. Do this twice.

Fold one set of the circles in half. The your draw petals as I did here.

Cut out your petals, these are your tracing templates.

Trace them onto the back side of your papers and cut out. You should have 16 petals of each size.

Satrt by glueing the petals tips onto its cooridinating circle as shown.

Take four more petals and evenly add them in the spaces.
4 more at a time until you have evenly glued all the petals down.
Add detail with your stickles and dew drops. There are approxmately 260 georgeous dews in each bottle!
Set your flowers aside for the stickles and adheared dew drops to set.
Then layer them one top of each other with tacky glue and tape some trim on the back to hang

 Thank you for coming to view my craft! Please visit the rest of the ladies in the hop for more Festive creations!
