Colorful Creations Blog Hop ~ Day 3!!

Hi there,

Today I have an ornament to share that I made just for you!  :)
So fun to make!  Really!

Here's a few simple instructions on how I made it:
I started by cutting a 2" and a 1 1/2" of pp, around 12-16" long.  The length may vary... depending on how your want your rosette to have more or less pleats/folds.  I used a border punch along the edge of each strip, but you don't have to.
I then scored every 1/4" or less along each strip and began folding along each line, like an accordion.  The ends were adhered together.  
Now you can create your rosette.  Flatten it down and gently bring the inner circle together.  There are different ways to do this... but I like to cut a small circle and adhere it to the circle.  Hot glue is what works best for me.  
Two rosettes of different sizes were layered for a cool dimensional look.  
Now... it's time to embellish!

Here's a closer look.
I added some home made bling, ribbon and a vinyl shape with a glitter gem in the center.  Ribbon was threaded through one of the holes at the top of the rosette.

That's it!  
Hope I've inspired you to give it a try too!
