Large Medallion Christmas Ornaments

I made these ornaments for my craft show next weekend.  They are 7 1/2" in diameter and double sided.
One is made with retired Christmas paper (this was my prototype)

This was my prototype - using retired designer paper
I used 2 1/4" squares of designer paper and rolled them into cones.  See my video Medallion Christmas ornament
I used a hot glue gun to attach the cones to a 1 3/4" circle - because of its size the sticky tape wasn't holding very well.
In the center I placed a Whisper White snowflake (Snowflake die #2)-glittered with dazzling diamonds, followed by a medallion made using the Simply Score it and 1 1/4" by 11 Cherry Cobbler card stock.
I found an antique button in my stash, and placed that in the middle of the medallion.
A silver glitter butterfly (Beautiful wings die) was placed on the top of the button. Pearls were placed between the wings.
I adhered all these elements with a hot glue gun.

With a crop-o-dile I inserted an eyelet in one of the cones and inserted a hanging ribbon.
