Put glue on all flaps and insert and hold them for a few seconds until dry. Add glue to pictures and sprinkle glitter over them. I usually place a box under to catch glitter that falls.

cinnamon ornament
Cinnamon Ornaments These ornaments keep their wonderful cinnamon scent for several years. There are variations to these ornaments other places on the internet. We decorated them with small squeeze bottles of snow paint. It looked like they had frosting on them. You will need to make a large batch for a class. I figured out how much dough was needed for one ornament and rolled it into a ball and put wax paper around it. Each child flattened the ball of dough and cut out their ornament with a cookie cutter. It takes about four days for the ornaments to dry so they can be decorated. Some people dry them in a 200° oven for 20 minutes instead. They can be decorated when dry. I found some snow paint in small squeeze bottles. They probably could be decorated with small red cinnamon decorations also.* The ornaments I made with my class eight years ago still smell like cinnamon. This is from kinderteacher.com
