3D ornament - step by step

On the front of the 2012-2103 autumn/winter catalogue is a fantastic decoration. I so wanted to have a go that I got the products, and now I have finally decided to make it!

I'm going to do some basic step by steps for you - the full list of ingredients that I have used is at the bottom of the post.

Step 1. Using two stamps from the Ornament Keepsakes bundle I have stamped 20 of the baubles using gumball green ink and 20 of the smaller ornament using raspberry ripple ink on to some very vanilla cardstock.

Step 2.  Using the coordinating holiday ornaments framelits, die cut the stamped images.

Step 3:

Score 15 of the baubles and 15 of the other ornament in half.  I used my scoreboard for ease to do this.  Then glue together three of the folded ornaments so that you have 5 sets of each decoration.

Step 4: Attaching time.  Using one of the ornaments that you haven't folded, place this stamped image face down, then stick one of the folded baubles on top, do this for all of the baubles.

Step 5: Layering up.  I punched a circle using the 1 3/4" circle punch using a piece of the very vanilla cardstock and then glued around the edge and started with the green bauble, popped them on the circle.

Step 6: Time to add some tulle.  I have used the cherry cobbler in the autumn/winter catalogue to do this.  I have cut 5 pieces of tulle and I have got my hot glue gun out for this next bit.   I 'squished' the tulle and then hot glued it into the spaces between the green ornaments.

Step 7: Next come the red ornaments.  I stayed with the hot glue gun for this so that I can have these ornaments slightly raised.  If you have a silicone glue this should work just as well or even some glue dots.

Step 8: Decoration.  I have used some linen thread which I have doubled over which goes 'inside' the green ornament.  I used the hot glue gun again to stick this down.

Step 9: Rosette.  I cut a strip of designer paper (from the snow festival set) measuring 12" x 1" and using the scoreboard, scored it at equal intervals (1/4") and made it into a rosette.  On my list is the new rosette die which will make this a bit easier!  I usually stick the rosette down onto a small circle but as this rosette needs some flexibility as it is going into the centre, I just used some wet glue to get into shape.  Then a used a big dollop of glue in the centre of the decoration to stick the rosette down.

Step 10: Hanging up & finishing.  I simply decided which way I wanted it to hang and then popped a hole in the top of one of the green baubles and threaded through some ribbon and on the back, to cover the circle, I used a stamp from the chock-full of cheer stamp set using the midnight muse ink pad.
