Day 1 of 25 Days at My Paper Crafting- Ornaments



I am so excited to be a part of the 25 Days of Christmas and Year 'Round Crafting Showcase with all the wonderful designers at My Paper Crafting.  Today for my ornament I made an ornament using the free ornament digi file that I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I cut this out after coloring and placed on a circle for the center of my cone ornament.  
The ornament was made by cutting 3 x 3 squares of double sided paper and forming them into cones.  I  used a glue gun to form them and then glued them on to a  2 inch cardboard circle.  
Once I formed the first circle I turned the ornament over and  placed the other 8 cones in the center of two cones to form the back.  I added ribbon for the string.  
Here is a link to a tutorial.  There are others too if you google cone wreath tutorial.  
Later in the week I will post the wreaths I made also.
