Christmas Recycling

Good Morning!
I hope you are all having a fab weekend. My name is Debbie and I am going to show you how to make this Christmas hanging ornament from.............. wait for it.......................... a Toilet Roll!!!
I have decorated with the gorgeous stamps from WOJ's September Stamp Kit-Christmas Blessings

This is the back.

OK this is what I used:
1 Empty Toilet Roll, 2 pieces of Christmas papers, Snowflake Charms and bells and Vintage Photo Distress ink.
Firstly, with a good PVA glue, cover the whole toilet roll and wrap your Christmas paper around.

Once dry cut into six 1/2 inch sections like above picture. These are the petals.

Glue around the edges of each petal and place onto the back of your other chosen paper and allow to dry. Once dry, cut around carefully and repeat on other side so both sides are covered.

When all segments are dry and cut out, I then roughed the edges with my scissors and distressed with Vintage Photo Distress ink.

Carefully glue together with a strong glue. Decorate with chosen stamped images on both sides and add embellishments etc.. and it should look something like this.

I hope you enjoyed this Tutorial and I would love to see what you come up with.
Thankyou for looking
