Brightly Gleaming Bauble

brightly gleaming bauble

I found this project on Pinterest by The Paper Pixie (she had cased it from Samantha Clayton of Mixed Up Craft) and then watched her YouTube video. It was nowhere near as complicated as I though it would be, so I decided to give it a go 🙂

Everything you need to make this project, can be found in the links below.

Pretty Peacock Cardstock 10 1/2″ x 6 1/4″
17 1″ squares of Designer Series Paper (DSP)
10″ ribbon

Put your cardstock on your scoreboard
Score the long side at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 3 3/4″, 5″, 6 1/4″, 7 1/2″, 8 3/4″ and 10″
Score the short side at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 3 3/4″ and 5″

On each of the squares containing a triangle, measure along to 5/8 inches and make a mark.
Using a ruler and your scoring tool, join the mark to the scorelines at the corners making sure the bottom ones are the opposite way round as shown in the diagram.

Fold and burnish all your straight scorelines.
Now cut off the squares, shown on the diagram by X.

Now attach your DSP to the squares shown on the diagram.

Put glue along the narrow tab and fold it to seal.
We are now going to shut the bottom of our bauble up leaving the square with the DSP until last.
Start by gluing opposite sides, so they cover each other exactly.
You will need to pinch the diagonal scorelines to do this.

Punch a hole in each of the top flaps using an 1/8″ punch.
You can fill your bauble with treats if you are going to use it as a gift.

Fold your ribbon in half and tie a knot .
Now thread the ribbon through the holes, making sure you leave the front panel until last.
If you are not filling it, you could glue the panels shut as you go.
I hope you like this project as much as I do. Think my neighbours may be receiving these filled with sweets this Christmas 🙂
Until next time, happy crafting
