Christmas Gift Toppers

These little pretties can be used as tree ornaments too, but I felt they would make a nice alternative to bows.

My supplies were some ribbon and scraps left over from other projects, and a few leaves and of course hot glue!

I found this great idea on the blogs, of how to make paper roses.  I grabbed an instruction sheet from a wine kit that was destined for the recycle and gave it a try.  It was so easy to do.   Click here  to see the tutorial.

I downloaded a piece of sheet music from 
The Graphics Fairy  and quickly wrapped up three 2x2s.   Who wouldn't want 2x2s for Christmas......especially three of them.  Anyways, I placed the little creations on the awesome 2x2  gift  and snapped away.
 I must admit, I think I would  coffee or tea stain my next roses or I could download the sheet music from The Graphics Fairy, printing on both sides.   This would make beautiful roses for decorating too.
