Paper Ornament

Paper Ornament using the Stampin' Up!
Gift Bow Bigz L Die by Sizzix


S
uplies needed:
Paper/card stock in two different colors, wire, wire cutter, pliers,
paper trimmer or scissors, 1/8" hole punch,  tape,
four or more beads (2 big, 2 small)
circle punches for two 1" circles and  two 1/2" circles


I started by die cutting two each of the bow part
from the Bigz die.
 
With a paper trimmer or scissors- cut the supporting color (white) down
 to an inch and a half and mark to punch holes (about 1/8" from ends) for wire and beads.


Cut a 6 inch length of 26 or so gauge bead wire and use
the pilers to make a lope at end to secure the bead.
Also, make a 2" long tube/straw out of paper to support the strips.


Also die cut or punch two 1/2" circles and
two 1" circles and punch 1/8" hole in center

Add the smallest bead to wire, the larger bead and
one of the 1/2" circles.

Aline strips in this pattern and add them onto
your wire in the order seen here.

After the strips are loaded onto the wire add
a larger circle (1") and the tube/straw and
the second 1" circle at top end of the tube. 

Start adding the thinner white strips first onto the wire.
Add the ends that are across from each other. 

(YOU MAY ADD GLUE IF YOU LIKE TO SECURE THE STRIPS)
Add the red strips in the same X formation (the ends across from each other)
then add the last 1/2" circle, the larger bead and the smaller. Make a loop in the wire to secure the bead and use remaining wire for the hook if you like.




I HOPE YOU WILL TRY THIS! It's addicting and FUN!

IF SOMEONE HAS ALREADY COME UP WITH THIS DESIGN FROM THE BOW DIE, PLEASE SHARE TECHNIQUE WITH ME.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
