So you may have noticed I have been absent, the projects I had scheduled had to be postponed when I had to cancel the class that featured them due to ill health. Life has also been manic. Yesterday was the annual Christmas Craft Day that I run with my upline and friend, Debs. The ladies did six projects and received a goodie bag, lunch and refreshments. We also had a fun game of pass the parcel. This was one of the projects that I did which I cased from a fellow Pootles team member, the lovely Angelina over at http://intatwynedesigns.co.uk.
4 pieces of /whisper White or Very Vanilla Cardstock 2-3/4 x 11-3/4″
Scraps of Mossy Meadow and Real Red Cardstock
Scraps of Whisper White or Very Vanilla Cardstock
Punch out 20 large baubles and 20 small baubles.
Set up the large bauble stamp on your Stamparatus and stamp a template onto your small grid paper.
Line the punched baubles onto the template and stamp all 20 large baubles in Mossy Meadow.
Repeat the process with the small baubles in Real Red.
Set 5 large baubles and 5 small baubles to one side and score the rest of the baubles down the centre and fold them with the pattern on the inside and burnish them.
Glue 3 baubles of the same size together and then attach to the back of one of the unscored baubles.
Do this until you have five large and five small baubles.
Punch out a 1 1/8″ scalloped circle in Whisper White or Very Vanilla, 1 3/8″ scalloped circle, a 1 1/2″ circle in Real Red, a 2″ circle in Whisper White or Very Vanilla and a starburst circle in Mossy Meadow.
Put glue all over the 1 3/8″ scalloped circle and add the end of your large baubles evenly spaced all around the circle, then add end of the small baubles in the gaps between.
Cover the ends of the baubles in silicone glue, making sure to keep it on the scalloped circle and building it up slightly. Add the 1 1/2″ Circle on top of the silicone glue.
Stamp a star in Mossy Meadow onto the 1 1/8″ Scalloped Circle and add that on top of your Real Red Circle.
Turn the ornament over and add the Mossy Meadow Starburst.
Stamp your sentiment in Real Red onto the 2″ circle and add to the starburst.
Finally, punch a hole in the top of your ornament and add some ribbon to hang it.
These are quite time consuming, but such fun to do. Will definitely be making more 🙂
Come back on Wednesday to see another one of the fun projects that we did.
Until next time, happy crafting
