Project Instructions

Cut four strips of 7"x¾" paper and four strips of 5"x¾" paper.

Fold each of the 7" strips in half. Adhere approximately ¼" of the bottom edges together. Once dry, carefully use fingers to bow out the sides, making a leaf shape.

With the 5" pieces, glue the two ends together to form a loop.

On the larger leaf shaped pieces, apply a narrow adhesive border around the center of the outside.

Glue the bottom ends of the pieces together, alternating leaf and teardrop shapes, to create ornament as shown. Glue together four alternating pieces first. Then, separately, glue the other four alternating pieces. Finally, glue the two assemblies together.

Adhere a diamond gemstone to the center on both sides, hiding the intersection of all the pieces.

Use tip of scissors to poke a tiny hole in the top center of a large leaf-shaped piece. Run two ends of a length of gold thread down through the top. Tie on the inside of the ornament with a large knot so it doesn't slip back through the hole.

Choose two small butterflies and attach them to the cord facing each other.
