Tips & Tricks:

The ornament that I create was created with a little paper and glue.  I cut 20 circles using the layering circle framelits.  I used the 3rd or 4th to the largest framelits.  Actually I cut 21 circles i needed one as a template for the other 2o to get the shape right.  I folded the corners of the circles around the template to give me the shape you see on each circle.  I found the template for the ornament online and had seem them in stores and wanted to try one.  Here’s how t create your template.

This is where I found the template to create my circles.  I had seen this ornament in a store before Christmas and wanted to try making one, so I started researching and ran across this template.  You are going to glue five triangles together.  Then you are going to glue the next five on top of those five.

I found that it was easier to do both the top and bottom sections separately.  Then glue them together after running the ribbon through the top and bottom sections.  I attached one of the gold tassels the the bottom of the ribbon at the bottom of the ornament to act as a stopper.
