Spiral Ornament Tutorial

>> Sunday, August 28, 2011


Last week I promised you a tutorial on our new spiral ornament demo, and I'm happy to say all went well this week and here it is! Yeah!

Cut four pieces of white cs to approx. 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 and brayer fresh green, turquoise, violet and raspberry inks on each piece. After drying, stamp our Spiral Oval or Circle using clear versamark ink, emboss with silver ep and cut out.

Score a line down the center of the back

and fold with the stamped sides out

cut out center (if desired).

You should have four pieces

On the back of one piece apply tape and adhere cord and a center charm if desired. (I used two 1/2" crystal jewels taped back to back with silver cord in between)

Fold one of the remaining pieces right sides together and adhere to the left side lining up the center folds and outside scallops. Do the same with the last 2 pieces adding more tape as needed.

I added glue and purple glitter to the outside edges and then added some dimensional white liquid pearls for a little added zing!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
