So with book in hand I got to work pulling them apart and remaking them into some interesting Christmas ornaments.
I've used origami folded dahlia type flowers with silver glitter paper rosettes, rolled paper roses, plain silver glitter paper rosettes, paper rosettes with antique silver buttons, and frilled paper flowers using the Kaszazz fringe flower paper die (thanks for the lend Coralee, OK you can have some white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake!!!). I'm quite happy with the final product and looking forward to hanging it on my door, despite my burned thumb (it took a lot of hot glue to get it all to stick together and stay put!).
