Flower ornaments or gift tags

Front of flower

I don't know what other people call these flowers, but I just call them ornaments or gift tags because that is what I am using them for.  They really look nice on a gift bag, present, or a Christmas tree.

To make them you start by cutting twelve 2 x 2 squares of Designer Series Paper.  You can also make the flower a bit smaller by using only eleven folded squares.  You fold each square to make the cone shape.  I used a small piece of sticky strip to keep each cone together.   I layered them on a large  circle that was covered with sticky strip.  I added another circle that was embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder, a Holly Berry Bouquet Button and some mini jingle bells to decorte the front.

I use Crystal Effects as my adhesive for the large circles. 

To make the flowers I used the following:
Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler #119685
Designer Series Paper:  Frostwood Lodge #124002 (Holiday Mini)
Punch:  2 1/2" Circle #120906
Embellishments:  Mini Jingle Bells #124116 and Holly Berry Bouquet Buttons #125636 (Holiday Mini)
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder #116824, Sticky Strip #104294, Crystal Effects #101055
