3-D Paper Ornament

Today I'm the featured designer for Jinger Adams, and I'm sharing a fun 3-D paper ornament that I made with Jinger's beautiful Bella Vita papers.

I started by using my Silhouette Cameo to cut twelve 2 1/2" circles from the music paper.  This paper is great for everyday occasions or for Christmas!  It's double sided, and I turned 6 with the white side up and six with the gold side up, scored them down then middle, and then arranged them in a stack with two white, then two gold, two white, etc.

Next I stapled twice in the crease, once at the top and once at the bottom.

The last step is glue dots.  I placed one about a third of the up from the bottom, and pressed the two sides together.  On the next section I put the glue dot a third of the way down from the top, pressing the two sides together.  I continued around the circle in this manner, alternating the glue dot positions.  Finally, I added a little trim from Jinger's Gypsy Queen collection.
