Core'dinations Christmas Ornament

Quick update: I am excited to post that my ornament won in this challenge. Thanks to Jennifer and Core'dinations. 

Hi hard core croppers,

This is my submission for Jennifer Edwardson's challenge to make a Christmas ornament. 
 I made my own pattern for this ornament. It is ~5" high and 1 1/2" on each straight side on top. I traced the pattern on the back of gold smooth glitter paper and scored with the tip of my scissors lightly. I decided to use whitewash card stock with gold core. I ran through a holiday embossing folder and then placed the template on the back and cut out. Each of the four panels were spritzed with pearl mist. I added the panels while the ornament was flat. Tape was added to the end flap and the ornament folded together. Pearls were added to top edge and two holes punched on opposite sides to accommodate the ribbon handle which was threaded through and tied. 

 I threaded metallic thread through the inside of the ornament and out the tiny opening in the bottom. I tied a small loop to make a tassle, die cut two stars, xyroned them and sandwiched the thread loop between them. Lastly, added a sparkly embellishment to both sides of the stars.
Supplies Used:
Core'dinations whitewash collection - gold core
Core'dinations sanding block, dust cloth
Recollections - soft gold glitter paper and pearls
My own pattern for ornament
Ranger - perfect pearl mist
Xyron sticker maker
Sizzix embossing folder
Red line tape
Prima gems 
Stampin' Up! - 5/8" ribbon
On The Surface - gold metallic thread
