For each 80mm acrylic ball you will need to cut 2 pieces of the selected die design.
Cut a circle of red and green cardstock in the diameter of the ball.
Use the silver ink pad to create shadows on the circle cardstocks.
Curve the die cuts a bit to create a better effect and follow the ball shape. Attach them on the circle cuts on both sides. Decorate with rhinestones. For the Tree die cut, you will need to trim it a little at the bottom part to fit the ball.
Place glue on the acrylic ball in random shape to cover the a bit less than the half of the ball. Add some on the top of the ball parts too. Deep them in the snow crystals and let the dry well.
For the small balls place a charm inside using some wire and just a drop of hot glue.
Repeat the same with the glue and the snow crystals as with the large balls.
Cut green holly leaves with the dies and attach them on the green wire. Do the same with the pearls on the leaves to look like berries. (alternatively you can have the Marianne Design Bunch of Berries JU0909)
Tie a bow with the 15mm ribbon and attach about 10cm long pearl strung and two leaves with the berries. For the small balls, use the red ribbon and one leave. The excess wire can be used to hang the balls. Just pass it through the hole on the top and bend it.
