    I watched the video and there are actually four Dresden foil pieces. The first is the Pink (other colors available) Dresden Snowflake; next the Gold Dresden Ribbon Holder; then the Silver Dresden Lacy Filigree Rosette (other colors available); now the Angelic Face. It is then flipped over for the Spun Glass Bird Tail to be glued; now the Gold/Silver Tinsel Fringe; and finally the fourth Gold/Silver Dresden Lacy Filigree Rosette. There are actually four Dresden pieces.

    Great web site Martha! Just placed my order with them and cannot wait to start the project. I also checked out their angel wings to add onto the angels (not on the instruction sheet). I am making 16 angels (16 angel faces per sheet) and the cost is about $8.00 or so each including the shipping and other materials. Donna Rae

    Small Vintage Dresdens, say,1and 1/2 inch in diameter, cost about $35 each (have front and back stamped print). The most valuable old ornaments were animals and people on bicycles, things in their everyday life at the time. I've even seen a Moose Head ornament!
