I just poured epoxy over the circles after stamping and coloring them. Then bent the wire, and threaded the beads. Once the epoxy was dry, I glued the circles (they are a front and back, the back is just a blank circle in a solid coordinating color) together with CE. The only hard part is waiting for the epoxy to dry! HTH Please feel free to IM or PM me with more specific questions. One lesson I learned was to use the epoxy sparingly. It will run over the edge. And it doesn't cut well when dry. Spread a thin layer to the edge and it will level itself out.

OMG, I just received one Joyclynn sent to me (I'm not part of the swap, she's just that cool!). It is soooo cute IRL!! It is hard to see in the picture above because of the ribbon which is holding the ornament to the card, but there are beads on the wire - they really add sparkle. It is amazing how strong this thing feels too. Thank you Joyclynn!!!
