Medallion Christmas Ornament - Challenge 151

This ornament combines a medallion with a rosette, a snowflake and a butterfly.  It's large and awesome!


1.  Cut 13 pieces of Designer series paper (I used Letters to Santa) 2" by 2"
2.  Fold each piece in half and unfold.
3.  With a pencil or the handle of a paint brush, roll each piece diagonally.  Unroll gently.
4.  Fold into a cone shape.  Do this for all 13 pieces.
5.  Using a hot glue gun, attach each piece to a circle punched with a 1 1/4" circle punch.

6. Insert a jumbo eyelet in one of the medallions and attach a cherry cobbler and white Baker's twine through it.
7. Using the snowflake die, die cut a snow flake in Whisper White card stock and apply dazzling diamonds.
Attach it to the center of the medallion using stampin dimensionals.
8. Now make the rosette using 1 1/4" by 12" Cherry Cobbler card stock scored every 1/4" on the Simply Scored tool.
9. Attach a 1" circle in Cherry Cobbler punch with the 1" circle punch
10. On top of that attach a Cherry cobbler button.
11. On top of the button attach a butterfly die cut using the Beautiful wings die and silver glimmer paper.
12. Three pearls in the center of the butterfly complete the ornament.

Repeat steps 7 to 12 for the other side of the medallion.
