Rosette Christmas Tree Ornaments

Here is another quick and easy ornament to make, again you are only limited by your imagination.  You can also adhere it to a card with removable tape.

Tim Holtz's Alterations Mini Paper Rosettes (2 sizes) or use what rosette die you have
12 x 12 scrapbook paper ( it has to be 12 x 12 because that is what fits the die)
Glue gun
Ribbon Tinsel
Jump Rings (I like Tim Holtz's because they are easy to open and close)
Scotch tape
Round punch

Cut your rosettes 
Run Scotch tape along back to reinforce the rosette.  The perforations have a tendency to rip and the tape helps hold it together and makes the rosette stronger.  It will be on the back so it won't show.
The die comes with circles but I like using a punch and I punch two one for the front and one for the back.
Accordion fold rosette.
Lay one flat end over the other flat end and glue so now you have a circle.

Use large glue dot to hold gathers at top and flatten. Stick round with glue dot on top to hold.

Turn over and adhere other punched circle with a glue gun.  This will give the rosette extra hold.  Adhere the tinsel with a glue gun to the back.
Pick embellishment.  Adhere with glue gun.
Adhere ribbon with glue gun.
Hang on tree.
