Winners are announced each Wednesday…so check back each week to see if you’ve won!

For the ornament: Each petal has been created by stamping 4 images, use one flat as the base and fold the other 3 in half sticking them together to create dimension, The centre uses the SU Snow Flurry die, The best way to adhere the pieces is using a hot glue gun as there is some weight in the final product, I hope you will have a try at making your own, it creates a wonderful free hanging ornament or a decoration as I have used here
