TJ Blogstravaganza - 3D Ornament with Mini Tutorial

Have you wanted to create a 3D ornament with your Snowflake Die? In this post I'll show you how I created mine. I'll apologize now for the bad photos - it's cloudly/cold here today and I couldn't get a good photo to save my life!















You'll need:
  • 6 dies cut with Snowflake Die
  • Adhesive (e.g. glue stick, Xyron, Stampers Magic Tape, Snail)
  • Cording or Elastic
  • Beads
  • Stamped Image (optional)
  • Glitter (optional)

After die cutting your snowflakes fold them in half






















Adhere one snowflake to a second snowflake as shown (you'll now have 3 pieces that look like the ones in the photo)

Adhere the 3 sets to each other - but before you adhere the last one, you'll want to insert your cording so that you have a way to hang your ornament.





Be sure to thread your beads onto your cording/ribbon before you add the ribbon. On my finished piece, I added some Stickles, and my stamped image from Holiday Lineup that I colored with the Marker Water Coloring Technique, I punched it with my circle punch, layered onto my 1-1/4" punched Circle, then added Stickles around the outer edge, tied on my bottom beads.


Here's a brigher photo (sorry about the shadows of the snowflake in the back)


Details:
Stamps - Holiday Lineup
Ink - Black, Markers
Card Stock - White, Watercolor, Ballet Blue
Other - Cording, Circle Punches 1", 1-1/4", Stickles, Aquapainter, Snowflake Die, BigShot, Adhesive, Pretties Kit

Lisa,

I have done this too but folded it differently. Made it much harder. Thanks

Perfect!

Thanks for the pictures with the construction tips.

I'm spatially challenged when it comes to constructing 3D pieces so pictures really help.
