I have one more Pinterest inspired ornament to share. It's a rolled paper ornament that ends up looking like a big flower. All you need is double sided patterned paper and/or cardstock and a glue gun. I think the glue gun is key, I know I didn't have any other adhesive to hold this all together.
The outer layer is made from 2 inch squares and the inner layer consists of 1.5 inch squares. I rolled each square into a cone and secured with hot glue. I cut a small square of scrap paper and started assembling the outer 2 inch cone layer. Then added the 1.5 inch layer. Just keep adding cones until the whole circle fills out.
The only problem is the colors don't look like a Christmas ornament!! I used some My Little Shoebox holiday paper and by the time I got it all assembled, it turned out sooo pink and green. I love the colors, but not very holiday-ish. For the center I looked bits of cut ribbon and just keep adding loops until the center filled out. Then added a button and twine!
I love how the center turned out!! It would look great on a card or layout, too. Can't wait to make another one.
Are you all prepared for the holidays? We are done shopping and now need to wrap, wrap, wrap! We are also trying to plan out Christmas dinner as we are having all of my husband's family here for presents and dinner. My kids are off the wall excited for Christmas right now!
Have a great Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
