Happy Friday bloggers! Today I am sharing a 3D paper ornament I made for the CC Blog November Magazine Challenge. For this challenge we were asked to create "something fabulous for the upcoming holidays" using one of our latest Circle cartridge Sophie.
Now if you are not new to my blog you already know how much I adore this cartridge and have even mentioned in previous posts that it is my favorite (so far) of all the exclusive Circle cartridges. However, (big gasp!) Sophie does not really scream Christmas-y to me LOL so it was a real challenge to come up with something for the holidays using this cart....but I'm happy to say that I was able to come up with something.
To create the 3D ornament base, I cut this flowery-looking "frame" called <Label6> on page 47 of the handbook at 7 inches; I cut out 6 of them in red cardstock.
Before glueing the pieces together, I stood them up roughly to see if I needed to add more cuts. Since I wanted to insert something in the midde, I kept it at 6 pieces so the ornament would have 6 panels in all. I glued the first 3 pieces together, then worked on the image that I wanted to hang in the middle before adhering the last 3 pieces together to close up the ornament.
