Hi! I've been busy making these beautiful 3 d poinsettia ornaments.
I used three files from My Scrap Chick for this project.
Silver and white glitter cardstock
Rose red, green and light green, and light grey cardstock
white ivy embossed cardstock
3/8 inch wide poinsettia ribbon
light green seed beads
glue and adhesives
I made the Scalloped Oval Tag Layers 4.5 inches tall. I omitted the smallest layer. The bottom layer is silver glitter cardstock, the second layer is light gray cardstock, the third layer is white glitter cardstock and the top layer is embossed vine white cardstock. I inked all the edges in gray. I put the layers together using foam tape between the top two layers and the bottom two layers. I glued the other two layers together.
Watch the video to see how the flowers are put together.
I used a pick to make a line on the back of the flower pieces which made the creasing of the petals easier. I curled the tips of the petals like I would to curl ribbon.
I used foam squares between the layers instead of wire and glue. I used a single layer of foam squares between the layers of the flower and a double layer of foam squares between the layers of leaves.
I added a generous dollop of glue to the middle of the yellow flower centers and added about 6 light green seed beads.
I cut an 8 inch piece of 3/8 inch wide poinsettia print ribbon, folded it in half and tucked the ends between the bottom two layers at the top of the oval layers. This was held in place with glue dots and liquid glue. I then made and attached a small bow made with the same ribbon.
I love how these turned out! They look so much better in person.
Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think.
