"Once I organized all my leftover diamonds, I found a needlepoint grid for a Christmas ornament," says Angie DeLuca. "Placed a piece of laminating paper upside down over grid paper and started counting."
"Once that was done I covered it all with Glossy Accents embellishing glue and when dry, cut away the excess laminating paper. Voila! Ready to be mounted on glitter paper so it can hang on the tree!"
