~Tuesday~

Good morning to all, and Merry Christmas.
It has been a rough couple days filled with my baby being very sick
and breathing treatments, etc....

But I did promise to post instructions on how to make the ornament....I had so many requests...so here it is....and I have not forgotten tonight's drawing! So I will be back.

(on a quick side note...
Cosmo Cricket just placed one of my Lo's in their gallery!

Click here)


The first step is to CUT TEN 2" squares...or even 3" But let me tell you it will be HUGE
If you cut 3" or larger!. I did on this one as an experiment and it has ended up ON TOP of
my tree as a star!
Step two is to fold 5 squares in half corner to corner....
with one side showing and then the opposite on the other 5.
Next you lay them flat and fold one side in and then the other leaving a slight lip for glue.

Then you glue along this line BUT REMEMBER
***VERY IMPORTANT*** this is NOT a flat ornament so do not glue the flaps down.
It is a cylinder...so just glue the seams together and leave it popped up.
When that is all done you can start piecing the 10 pieces together.
It should look like this.
Now Glue the seams together..
do not overlap them just glue them right on the creases you made before


And of course you have seen the finished product.
One you cover the seams with ribbon or pearls and add a button you are good to go!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good day!
