Country Cottage Needleworks "Snow Love" Ornament Finishing...
DIFFICULTY LEVEL: MODERATE
2-3 skeins of DMC white floss (for cording)
Complimentary Material for backing
Fiskars Circle Template (OR ruler and glass and/or bowl to act as a template to make curved top of ornament)
Stitch the ornament entitled "Snow Love" as directed in the pattern by Country Cottage Needleworks. The pattern may be purchased at your Needlework store of choice.
"Snow Love" is simply a flat ornament with a curved top to create an "arch". You may simply follow The Flat Ornament... to create your "Snow Love" creation. The only difference is you will use a Fiskars Circle Template (found in the scrapbooking section of any craft store) to help you make the arch part at the top of the ornament. The template looks like this:
You will choose the circle that will incorporate the entire width of the ornament then using the circle draw a half circle on the mat board. Then from the side of the half circle use your quadrant ruler to draw straight line down on either side then one across the bottom. Cut it out, use it as a template by drawing around it on the mat board to get the second back part of the ornament (to make the sandwich) . Then go about following the Flat Mounted Ornament instructions.
To make the cording, please follow: The Cording... tutorial. I used 4 lengths of 6-stranded DMC floss to create the cording for this ornament.
