Chrysantemum flower ornaments

Here is a quick tutorial on how to make some Chrysanthemum flower ornaments for the holiday season.

You will need:
6 punched flowers in a daisy-like shape - from a heavier, double-sided pattern paper or cardstock
2 other punches to be used as leaves. I used a Martha Stewart Rocket shape.
Glue Dots
Stickles
a small length of twine or ribbon

1- Tightly roll up the petals of each flower punch to it's center.

2- Using a Glue Dot, adhere one flower to the next in their centers.

3- Gently uncurl petals as need be to "fluff" out the flower.

4- Glue Dot the punches for the leaves to the back of the flower.

5- Adhere twine to the flower to make a hanger.




6- Gently dab on some Stickles to the center for some shimmer and shine.

7- Let dry and then enjoy! :)
