Cogs for baubles?

Cogs are really big at the moment with the Steampunk trend, so I thought I'd transform them into baubles for your tree. They come in packs of 2 in either large or small so I've used a selection of them.

I've painted a small and a large one with purple acrylic and then once dry, I've rubbed a little Inka Gold onto them. They have been decorated with gems and glitter glue.

Another one was covered in paper and a smaller one painted, then they were both glittered and stuck together.

The final one was painted with acrylic paint then doodled and a smaller one covered with paper was then stuck on. A silver snowflake charm finished it off.

Finally I've attached ribbon to them either through the gaps or after punching a hole with a crop-o-dile.
