1 1/2" wide satin ribbon (Dollar Tree)
Proxxon Hot Wire cut and seal tool
Hot glue gun
Bead cone cap
CordingBegin by cutting 1 1/2" wide ribbon into two different sizes: Fourteen (14) - 1 1/2"x3" rectangles and Five (5) - 1 1/2"x1 1/2" squares. The easiest way for me was to use my Proxxon Hot Wire tool that cuts and seals at the same time.
To make the large and medium petals, take a 1 1/2"x3" ribbon, fold in half . . .
Fold corners down together at center forming triangle.
Fold again, bringing the two corners together, forming another triangle.
For the larger petal, hold in tweezers or hair clip and seal edges with flame from a lighter.
To make a medium petal, cut 1/8" off edge and then seal with flame.
To make the smaller petals, take a 1 1/2"x1 1/2" square . . .
and fold diagonally into a triangle.
Fold again, forming another triangle. Make sure ends and corners line up.Using a hair clip or long tweezers, hold the edges and seal using the flame of a lighter.
For the tree ornament you will need:
8 large petals
6 medium petals
5 small petals
To assemble tree: Begin with the larger petals and add glue to edge of one petal and press together with another petal, matching sides.
Continue gluing petals together at edges . . .
seal together forming the bottom section of tree.
Glue together the medium petals the same as before. Add glue to top of large petal section and line up the medium petals on top.
Glue together the smaller petals . . .
Secure the smaller grouped petals to top with glue.
Secure a hanging thread to top of beaded cone cap and glue onto top of small petals.
Adding a bead cone cap really dresses up the tree ornament!
Take a little time to enjoy
