Wintergreen Ornament

I picked up a idea sheet in the Martha aislse at Michaels called Glitter Star Ornaments. I knew that our Stampin' Up! Designer Paper would be great for this! There is a copyright on it so I don't think I can copy it, but can tell you how to do it.! Very easy to do!!!
Cut out 12 squares of DS paper 1-1/2 inch. Cut a 2" circle out of the same paper. Take your squares and shape them diagonally into cones. I sort of pinched one of the corners to make my middle point and then brought the two sides together to form the cone. I used a mini glue dot to hold them together. I glued my cones to the circle using Crystal Effects. (and when one of my cones popped open with just the glue dot, I decided to glue them more with Crystal Effects) I used mini clothes pins I had in my stash to hold them together until they dried. I punched the flower out and added the Pink Rhinestone brad to the center, and glued this down with a good amount of Crystal Effects. I punched a hole in one of the cones with my Crop-O-Dile and added a silver eyelet. Threaded with some silver cord to hang it! These are so pretty!
This is the back view.

Great idea to use with the Nov. SU paper promo! Mind if I case and tweak a little?

Love your star. I'm getting ready to make some stars this year and think I'll try your pattern too. I have posted to my blog an idea of what to do with scraps from star projects. You can see them here: Http://NeverTooManyStamps.com
