Thank you, Joan, for a lovely challenge today. When I first read it I was going to get out an old Christmas magazine, but I've never tried these ornaments before (tutorial in Resources). Had to improvise a bit as I had no hat pins or anything like it. I used #26 gauge wire, an end cap )not really necessary) and some beads, and started from the bottom up, rather than the top as in the tutorial. To hold the top in place and stop it springing up too much I threaded the wire around a bead and pulled it down to the right position to hold the strips in place.
Papers are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, with edges sponged in Merlot and Olive.
