Scallop 3D Ornament Tutorial

Recently while cleaning up my stamp area, I ran across a Basic Grey Ornament Kit I had purchased some time ago - I thought I'd try making them using my Scallop Punch and Dashing Designer Series Paper - here's the end result

























Scallop 3D Ornament Tutorial


Supplies you'll need:

20 Scallops punched from DSP
Elastic Cord
Snail
Scoring Tool
Pretties Kit















Score a triangle on all your scallop pieces and crease




















Select 5 scallop pieces for your ornament top. Using your snail, adhere one flap from two different circles, make sure that the triangle points meet, and your scallop edges are flush. Use this same process to attach the remaining 3 scallop pieces to complete the top of your ornament. Repeat to create your bottom piece. Set these aside.













Using your snail adhere the remaining 10 scallop pieces together, alternating the points up and down as shown to form a straight section























Snail the two ends together to form a ring, this will become the middle of your ornament

To finish your ornament, thread your elastic cord through the center of your top piece, tie on a bead from the Pretties Kit, using snail, adhere the flaps from the top to the available flaps of the middle section. Thread the cord through the center of the bottom, adhere the bottom flaps to the available middle section. Tie a Pretties Bead on the end of your elastic cording.

Wow, what a great way to use scrap pieces of designer paper. You know the ones that are too big to throw away, but to small to make a card with! Great tutorial. I'll have to see if my Boy Scouts can do it, we need a new Christmas project! Thanks for the great tutorial!
