Paper Ornament using the Stampin' Up!
Gift Bow Bigz L Die by Sizzix
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.
I HOPE YOU WILL TRY THIS! It's addicting and FUN!
