12 days of ornaments: day 2

Welcome to day 2 of the 12 days of ornaments! Did you have a chance to stop by the SCT blog yesterday to throw your hat into the ring for that a-maaaaaaaaazing prize from AC/Pebbles/Crate/Studio Calico? It's not too late, so be sure to enter here!

Today's ornament is layered rosette tree on the top row of the crate. It's a fussy, little decoration, but if you have a scoring board, you'll zip right through the layers!



For this project, you'll need patterned paper, red head pins, bead caps, small wood beads, a scoring board, glue dots, glitter and a paper doily.
  1. Cut 8" strips in the following widths: 1¾" and 1½"; cut 6" strips in the following widths: 1¼", 1" and ¾". Score each strip at the 1/4" mark down the entire length.
  2. Fold over and under on each score line to form hills and valleys, connecting the ends together with adhesive.
  3. Punch out 10 1/4" circles from patterned paper.
  4. Lay each rosette flat, pushing gently on the outside edge to gather it in the center. Place a glue dot in the center and cover it with one of the 1/4" circles. Turn the rosette over and repeat.
  5. Lightly dab wet adhesive around the outer edge of each rosette and roll it in glitter. Tap off the excess and set them aside to dry.
  6. Glue a wooden bead to the top, center side of the four largest rosettes. Stack the rosettes in order from largest to smallest, gluing them as you go along. A wet, tacky glue works best for this step, such as Aleene's.
  7. Thread two bead caps onto a red head pin and poke it down the center of the top of the tree.
  8. Dip the sharp point of red head pins into wet glue and slide them into the accordion folds around each rosette as shown.
  9. Once dry, glue the finished tree onto a white doily.
That's it, you've completed ornament #2!

Be sure to pop on over to day 2 of SCT's annual "12 Days of Holiday Giving." It's another fantastic prize up for grabs today!

See you tomorrow!
