Altered Fan Tutorial

Good Morning :)  Deann here with an Altered project and Tutorial for Gina's Designs. Gina has this awesome chipboard fan:

This is the fan after I ( Mom) Painted it gold. The first time I saw the fan I thought it would make awesome Christmas Ornaments! Turned up side down , they make really pretty tear drops .

This is what I used for each ornament.
First you will need to set the back, to do this I glued 2 leaves on then an oval over top to cover the glue up, make it look neater. The reason for doing the back of the ornament this way is to hide all the glue from the front embellishments.
Next- the front , first add your image to the center .

Next- add the leaf and poinsettia. Add one of the mini roses on to the leaf. (I like to wrap the rose stem around a paint brush to get that really nice curl).
  Add the other rose and snowflake...almost done :)
Now you just need to add the bow and hanger to the top and ta da got your self 6 really awesome ornaments! I hope you give this a try , they are so easy to make !
