Recycled snowflake decoration

Goodmorning to you all! It's me, Ingrid, and I'm very excited to be here today to show you my very first Whiff of Joy tutorial :-) I hope you like it!
I created a snowflake decoration, with toilet rolls. I love to recycle things and this way it's also a low budget project! Beneath I will show you how I made it using photographs.
 These stuff you need:
- 4 toilet rolls
- a stampler
- white paint (I used acrylic paint) and a brush
- a snowflake die and white paper
- stickles
- and a colored image (I used "Bird of Peace" from the October release)
 Fold the toilet roll in the middle, this way the openings keep round.
Fold it double... 
and secure it with the stampler. 
 Do this with all 4. 
Now you have to secure the folded rolls to each other so they will make a circle.
 This is the result.
 Paint the rolls and let it dry.
Make a hole to fasten a ribbon. 
 Now you can decorate. I used blue self-adhesive crystals and add stickles to the punched snowflake.
The bird holds a mistletoe twig and I decorated the berries with my cream Perlen-Pen.
I colored this image with copics and used these colors: 
brown E44, 43, 42, 41, 40
blue B95, 93, 91
bird face W7, 5, 3, 1, 00
bird feet E04
mistletoe BG99, 96, 93

I hope you liked my first tutorial and I would love to see you here or on my blog again!
