Christmas Gift Idea No. 10

Fancy Picture Frame
Here's another inexpensive picture frame that you can decorate and give as a Christmas gift.  To make this beautiful flower, follow the below instructions:

Ornament Punch (#119847, $16.95)
To make the flower punch out 18 ornaments out of one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" glossy paper and then sponge the edges of each one with pink ink.
1 3/4 Circle Punch (119850, $16.95)
Punch out one circle with the 1 3/4 circle punch for the base.  Add glue to the top part of the ornament and adhere four ornaments to the circle.  This will be the base of your flower.
With a pencil or stylus roll the edges of the remaining ornaments, fold the top edge and glue to the base of the flower going in a circular motion to form the flower.
Save one ornament and completely wrap it around, glue it and hold it tight until it dries.  This will be the center piece of your flower.
As you glue each piece, make sure you let the glue dry before you add the next one.

Cut out a leaf of your choice and glue it beneath your flower.

You can make these flowers in all different colors and add them to your projects.

I added the flower to this gift box and it makes it look so pretty.

I hope this flower tutorial was helpful.  I have two more gift ideas to share with you as my "12 Days of Christmas" comes to an end.  If you have any questions, please contact me.  Thanks for stopping by.
