CCN "Christmas Cookies" Ornament Finishing...

CCN_Christmas Cookies

To achieve this finish, simply follow the: 
The Flat Ornament Tutorial

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: EASY - MODERATE

The cording is the green floss and the pink floss twisted together using my Krenik cording drill to make the candy cane stripe cording. To make two color cording, first read through my tutorial The Cording...
To make two color cording you are going to take 2-6 strands of the first color - and cut lengths of the floss that are 4x's the outer circumference of the area you want. To do this: all you have to do is take the ornament, and the floss and holding the end of the floss at the corner go around the outside of the ornament with the floss (loosely) to get the length - do that 4 times, cut the floss ~ this is the length you need of both colors. Cut how ever many lengths of each color (in equal amounts) I would suggest cutting at least 3 lengths of each color. Separate the colors into two lengths (matched ends) Take color number one. Fold in half so that all the ends are together. Make a knot. Take color number too, taking the ends of color #2 slip through the circle of color #1. Then match the ends of color number two together and knot the ends. This will give  you both colors in circles tied together. Take color #1 and attach to the cup hook on your corder. Knot end at the corder cup hook. Either have a mounted cup hook somewhere on a wall or have a person hold the knotted end of color #2. 

Begin twisting as in the tutorial link above and follow all the steps as outlined in the tutorial above. 

This will result in candy cane stripe cording.
