MCT 3-D Wednesday


It's 3-D Wednesday with My Creative Time, and today we are sharing Christmas ornaments!  I've seen many versions of this fun paper ornament online, and I thought I would give it a try.  Basically, you need to cut 20 circles (mine are 2") and score them to create an equilateral triangle within each one.  I went ahead and created a circle with score marks in Silhouette Studio and cut 20 of them out of some green polka dotted paper from last year's Recollections Sugar Plums stack.  I also created triangles that were slightly smaller than the ones created when I folded the circles, and I cut them out of kraft cardstock.  To figure out how to attach all of the circles, I followed instructions that I found on Martha Stewart's website.  But, my design team buddy Kim found an awesome tutorial that really shows you how to do this without a Silhouette!


In each triangle I stamped a Christmas image from My Creative Time, coloring them with Copic markers and a white gelly roll pen.  Most of the images, such as the santa suit, snowman, and Christmas tree, came from the All Around Christmas stamp set.  I also used the bell from It's a Magical Season and the holly from From Our Family to Yours.


Before adhering the ornament completely together, I knotted some pretty red picot ribbon from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique inside of the ornament to create a hanger.

Katie,

I love, love, love your CUTE ornament!!! :) Would you be willing to share your file (I use both MTC and Silhouette Studio)? That sounds like it's easier to have all 20 circles cut and scored at once! (How do you make a score line vs. a cut line?)

Thanks so much for sharing!

Crafty hugs,

Jennifer
