1. Cut (8) pieces of red cardstock 3.5 inches x 3.5 inches.
2. Rubberstamp “sprig” image in black, and various “sentiments” in silver on red pieces, Ink all edges with black ink. Repeat on all squares.
3. Score a line from corner to corner in both directions. Repeat on all squares.
4. Cut one of the score lines from corner to center of square. Repeat on all squares.
5. Fold on score lines, overlapping flaps creating 3D triangles. Adhere the flaps together. Repeat on all squares.
6. Adhere all the triangles together in two sets of four creating the top and the bottom of the ornament. When creating top, add a loop of DMC floss and glue in with Crafter’s pick glue. Let dry. When creating the bottom, glue in an eye needle to eventually hang the beads from.
7. Now run a strip of the wonder tape about the edge of the bottom ornament. Remove red backing on tape and attach beaded trim. Run another strip of wonder under on the top ornament, remove backing and attach the top of ornament to the bottom.
8. Take another eye needle and feed some of the same beads from the trim onto it. Using needle nose pliers, bend the end of the eye needle through the eye needle glued in bottom of ornament creating a closure.
