The September Release Challenge at Flourishes is to create a shaped card (not rectangle) or a 3D item. I decided to make a 3D item since I tend not to do that very often. I created a Christmas Ornament by rolling squares of paper into cone shapes. I quite enjoyed making this and I do love how it turned out - there are all kinds of variations that you can create with this. Had a hard time photographing this since it is overcast today, looks very pretty in person.
(you can watch a video by Anna K here). I used fourteen 2" x 2" squares of DP, formed them into a cone shape using Tombow glue runner. I punched out a 2" circle and divided it into four quadrants with a pencil. Apply a fast drying glue to one quadrant and start gluing your cones down to the circle, lining up the points of the cones with the center of the circle. I gathered an 18" piece of 1 3/4" wide lace into a circle, glued it down to a small cardstock circle and then layered my sentiment on top. I used a 2 way glue pen along the inside edge of each cone and sprinkled with prisma glitter (I did this step after gluing my cones to the base circle, but I think it would be easier to add the glitter before gluing the cones down).
