Anyway, you'll need:
- Styrofoam egg (I think mine was about 2.5" or so)
- flat-headed pins
- bone folder
- ribbon (I used Pool Party Seam Binding)
- Blossom Petals Punch (used only the shorter, chubby petal)
- paper (I used the new Champagne Glimmer Paper and retired Spice Cake DSP - check the Clearance Rack for great deals on retired products like this one)
- Cut your paper into 1-1/4" strips, so that you aren't wasting tons of paper as you punch out approximately a billion short, chubby petals. Pin the chubby end of three of these petals to the point of your egg; this will be the bottom.
2. Curl the remaining petals with a bone folder, to help the petals stick away from the egg. Pin the petals to the egg one at a time, overlapping so no egg shows through.
3. When your egg is about half-covered, stop and tack on a loop of ribbon (about 8-10 inches).
4. Keep adding petals, right over the ribbon, until you reach the top. Bend the pointy part back on the last few petals and push the folded end right up against the ribbon. Tie a second piece of ribbon in bow around the first (this will hide the last petals added).
I'm really curious if anyone is trying some of the ornaments I'm sharing, so please leave me a comment here or share a photo of your project on my Facebook page.
