Supplies you will need:

Instructions

1) To add color to one of the pieces of white cardstock, spray red and gold Glimmer Mist onto craft sheet, press cardstock into color, lift and dry with a heat tool. Repeat until you like the effect.

2) Cut or punch a circle shape from cardstock to fit the optical lens. We'll be attaching it to the back so you see the collage through the glass.

3) Stamp part of holly image a couple of times on the circle using aloe vera ink and dry with the heat tool.

4) Cut out collage image and attach to circle.

5) Stamp Merry Christmas snowflake on white cardstock with black ink, dry, cut out one "Merry Christmas" and attach to circle.

6) Use clear glue to attach collaged circle to the back of the optical lens.

7) Add a thin line of clear glue around front of lens (if it's too hard to squeeze out a thin line, put a puddle on a scrap and use a toothpick to add glue to lens). Add glitter to glue. If using a toothpick to put the glue on, you might want to do a little bit, add glitter and then repeat until you've done the whole circle.

8) Cut two pieces of ribbon, spray one with red Glimmer Mist and the other with green, let dry, iron flat and use the green piece to tie on a hanger and the red to tie on a bow.
