Vintage "Peace On Earth" Christmas Ornament Collage Sheet

Hello Friends!!
I hope you are all having a fabulous day!
It is my turn to post at Really Reasonable Ribbon, so hop on over to my post there...and leave me some love.
Yesterday I started putting up my Christmas Decorations! 
I know it may seem early, but I put up a LOT of it takes a
Since I was in the Christmas mood, I decided to create a couple ornaments.
I found the angel image and music sheet at the 
Graphic's Fairy.  I just altered them by changing color etc.
Here is the one I am sharing today.
I LOVE it!!
You can see my second ornament from this collage sheet and and my video tutorials on how to put them together  here.
Pin It!

I used my new Bow it All from Really Reasonable Ribbon to create my fabby Rose Petal Pink Seam binding bow!!  
The usual...I created a collage sheet, Used my Make the Cut software and the Print and Cut feature and my Black Cat Cougar to cut out all of my shapes.  You can find my collage sheet here.
Here is how it came together.
First I printed, then cut out my pieces.
Next I glued my Star fronts and Backs together.  Then I distressed them with my craft knife.  
Inked all my edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo.  I am always amazed at how much this adds to my projects!
I used my Crop o Dile to punch a hole in the top and bottom of the large star, and the top of the little star.
Please refer to the photo above for placement.
I added a piece of jewelry wire, added a few beads, then strung it through the bottom of the large star.  One piece going in from the back, the other the front.  So you bend the wire back down toward the little star, then curl the left overs.  It should like the photo below when you are done.
Next I added the Tombow foam tabs on the back of my Angels and sentiment pieces.  Unfortunately this photo wants to look too I skipped it...LOL.
I used my new Bow it All to create my beautiful bow!
I also used a piece of micro pink gingham from Really Reasonable Ribbon for my hanger at the top.  I inked it with Ranger's Vintage photo. I glued the gingham in place, then glued down my Seam binding bow.
I also added my Angel focal piece.
I added my sentiment to the smaller pink star, and tied a tiny piece of left over baker's twine and glued it to the top of the smaller pink star.
I used my Designer Dries Clear Glue and Ultra fine tip applicator to apply glue to my piece.  Just peachy, Martha's yard and Fauna glitters were used.
Above is a close up of the beautiful Deep Ivory Roses, pink button, peppermint baker's twine and leaves.
Here is a close up of my larger bow and hanger.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today!
