~~**Fun Ornament**~~

Hello crafty peoples...
Back again with another project for Gone Artsy!
If you haven't stopped by the store yet... you don't know what you're missing!!!
GORGEOUS products at AWESOME prices... and if you do Bridal or Floral...
this is the place for you. The products are just stunning!

This is a Pinterest DIY inspired project by max & me using products from Gone Artsy... be sure to check out their blog for more FAB projects. Now when I first this I knew I had to do one for myself. This can be a great item to hang in the car, or the Christmas tree... the themes for this project are endless and a great craft project to do with the kids... SO AGAIN, be sure to check out max & me to learn how to create this.

I created a grid on my Silhouette CAMEO cutting machine (or you can draw out a grid on your paper and cut with your favorite scissors or rotary cutter) to cut the paper from the DoCrafts Papermania Madame Payraud Paper Pack - GA545 in 2 cm x 2 cm squares... from this pack I used a total of 6- 6x6 sheets in 3 different patterns. Next taking the Bead and Gem Gripper Tool with Four Prongs - GA481... a FABULOUS tool and one of my favorite tools ever... I was so glad Deb got it in the shop... using the tool I placed the end of it onto the center of the square, brought the corners drown over the tip of it and just gave it a scrunch around the tip of the tool. Then I just added a drop of hot glue, took the "scrunched" square and placed it on the glue... HINT: I used the tip of the tool to push the square into place and hold it down till adhered to the ball... this tool was a life saver doing this project not to mention its actual use with beads and gems... I MUST HAVE!!

NOTE: once I completed gluing the individual 2 cm x 2 cm squares onto the foam ball I used the Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distressing ink all over.. I went in one direction moving around the ball... and once I completed it all over I then repeated going the opposite direction for more coverage.
