Accordion Pleated Flower Ornaments
For the pleated flower I used a 12" strip of double sided Christmas paper (Merry Moments by Stampin' Up). I used the scallop border punch on the long edge and then cut the strip at 1/2". Fold this strip accordion style and then carefully bring this around into a circle, securing ends together with adhesive. I then glued this to a 1 3/8" circle and then onto a scallop circle and sandwiched a loop of gold elastic cording bewtween those two layers. You can come up with two very different looks from the same piece of paper depending on which side you choose to display as seen in the top photo. A great family project, this would be easy and fun for kids to participate in.
