From these strips, cut the following: one 6-inch-long strip (center round); eight 3-inch-long strips (arms); four 6-inch-long strips (scrolls); four 3-inch-long strips (teardrops); and four 2-inch-long strips (marquise shapes).
  2. For round: Using a quilling tool, begin rolling a 6-inch strip from one end. Roll strip into a tight circle. Finished center round should be 5/8 inch wide. Use a dot of glue to secure end; let glue set.
  3. For arms: Roll one end of a 3-inch strip around quilling tool twice. At opposite end, roll strip around tool until finished arm is 1 inch long. Make eight.
  4. Glue arms together in pairs (see above photo). Glue the bottom of arms in place around the center circle.
  5. For scrolls: Fold a 6-inch strip in half. Roll each end to the center. Make four.
  6. Glue bottoms of scrolls to bottoms of arms near the center round, as shown. Let glue set. Glue sides of scrolls to arms, as shown.
  7. For teardrops: Using a 3-inch strip, make a 1/2-inch round. Pinch one side into a point. Make four.
  8. Glue the teardrops between rolled ends of scrolls.
  9. For marquise shapes: Using a 2-inch strip, make a 1/2-inch round. Pinch opposite sides into points. Make four.
  10. Glue marquise shapes to ends of arms. Let ornament dry overnight.
  11. Spray one side of ornament with adhesive and sprinkle with glitter; let dry. Turn over ornament and repeat on opposite side.
