Christmas tree decorations #1

Today is the 3rd day in Kortgleder's Advent Calendar and it is my day to show you my creaitons. Today I will show you a few Christmas Tree decorations, and the first post is a tutorial for Christmas tree balls.  

You need only:
- NS MFD011
- Brads
- Silk paper
- Thread
- Glue
- Glitter

 Step 1. Fold together many layers of silk paper and use MFD011 die. 

 Step 2. Use a brad to hold layers together. 

Step 3. Start with separating the layers from each other and fold towards the center. 

Step 4. This side is done.

 Step 5. Continue with other side.

 Step 6. Both sides are now ready. 

 Step 7. Tie a thread around the center.

Step 8. Prepare glue and glitter. First role the ball into the glue and then into a glitter.

Step 9. Hang a ball and let it dry. 

That's how you may do different sizes and shapes of Christmas tree balls. 

Later today I will show more Christmas tree decorations. Stay with us!
