Hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far. We have been having a very busy (but very fun!) time.
I’ve stolen a little time to play with my Silhouette cutter (yay!) and thought I’d share my simple little project. This ornament was made the same way as the ornaments in this blog post. Basically, you score 6 shapes down the center and fold in half. Then you just glue half of one shape to half of the other and keep going to make a circle.
I created a free Silhouette cut file to cut the 6 snowflakes. Its very simple, but might be useful for someone looking for a quick project. You can download it here. It is in .studio file format.
The snowflakes are directional, so you need to make sure you fold along the slightly longer side. Its easiest to see the slightly longer points. I scored mine before folding, but I don’t think you need to.
For my first sample, I just printed a sheet of blue wood grain paper from the Owl Wear Woolies kit and then cut it with the Silhouette (OK – that cutter is serious fun!). Then I glittered the edges (turns out I’m a mess with glitter – but I do like the glitz). I bought the big o’le 24 pack of Martha Stewart glitter – so I think there will be more glitter in my future.
I also made a second ornament and attached it to a package:
For this sample, I used the snowflake paper that is part of my current Facebook Fan Freebie. I wrapped the little package in the green solid from the Snow Flurry Digital Papers (I just printed it on a sheet of thin, cheap photo paper).
One last note:
We are doing our annual “Its Christmas and we are all going to unplug for a while and spend time as a family” thing.
So any orders for physical products placed in the Paper Garden Projects store after Tuesday December 20 will not be shipped until January 3.
Of course – digital products can be purchased anytime!
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!
