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.
