Melinda here today sharing my ornament project with you. These ornaments were super easy to make and very pretty.

Cut all your pieces out
I proceeded to cut out 8 of these ornament files in white. I then created the solid "liner" piece by ungrouping the ornaments internal structure. I cut eight of these pieces out using some pretty paper from the Paper Studio Stack. Once I had all of my pieces cut out, I went ahead folded each piece in half. I did use my score board so that I could get a really good, clean score. You need to be careful with the filigree ornament when folding as there are a lot of little open pieces. Once all my pieces were folded, I glued one liner to one of the filigree pieces. This will create a total of eight flaps.
I then glued one half of one flap to the next half of the next flap. I continued to do this until I was left with only the very first open flap and the very last open flap.
Before gluing these last two flaps together, I added a pink ribbon loop to the top to hang the ornament. For the bottom, I used some floral wire and strung some beads. I glued the strung beads to the bottom inside flap and the ribbon to the top inside flap. Once these were in place, I could go ahead and glue the remaining two flaps shut completing the circumference of the ornament. I thought eight flaps made for a nice amount, you can always experiment and create your ornament with more or less flaps depending on the look you are going for.
Here’s a closer look at the string of pearl beads I used. They were just some random beads I had in my stash.
Add ribbon bows to the tops and bottoms of the ornaments and add pearls along the sides of each opening.
