Materials

  • Paper and Cardstock
    • Grey Cardstock Scrap
    • Bo Bunny Winter Joy Brrr Paper     ( BBP-P-03222   $0.89)
    • Bo Bunny Winter Stripe Paper     ( BBP-P-03231   $0.89)
    • Bazzill Textured Cardstock, White for card base and layering     ( BAZ-10-1005   $0.59)
    • Bazzill Textured Cardstock, Purple, Forget Me Not     ( BAZ-6-621   $0.59)
    • Gray cardstock scrap
  • Inks and Embossing Powders
    • Brilliance ink, Pearlescent Starlite Silver     ( TSU-BP-Silv   $7.90)
  • Embellishments
  • Tools
  • Adhesives

Instructions

  • Using the circle punch, punch (5) 1 1/2” circles from the double-sided Bo Bunny “brrr” paper.

  • Fold (4) of the circles perfectly in half (snowflake pattern facing inward) and burnish with your bone folder.
    Make these folds as accurate as possible.

  • Lay one circle down flat with the snowflake pattern facing down.
    Apply adhesive to back of circle base. Place first folded half circle to left side of the flat circle base.
    Line up the circle edges.
    Do the same with a 2nd folded half circle on the right side of flat circle base.
    The two folded edges should be side by side down the center of circle base

  • Apply adhesive to the back halves of these two folded half circles.
    Lay the 3rd and 4th folded half circles down just as you did the first two.
    Make sure the circle edges line up.

  • You should now have two circles stacked on the left and two on the right.
    Burnish these in place.
    Put adhesive on the back of one of the top half circle backs and stick to the back of the other top half circle.
    This should complete your 3D ornament.



  • Cut a 1” x 1/2” piece of grey scrap cardstock and ink with silver Brilliance ink.
    Attach to back of ornament so that just about 1/4” or so sticks up.
    Make a small loop from the wire.
    Attach to the back of the gray cardstock.



  • Make a 4 1/4” x 6” card base from the textured white cardstock.
    Cut a 4 1/4” x 6” layer of Bo Bunny “brrr” cardstock and adhere to the front of card (tree side up).
    Cut a mat from the white cardstock approximately 2 1/2” x 3 3/4”.
    Add a purple layer behind it, leaving a small border showing.
    Attach to front of card.

  • From the Bo Bunny “stripe” paper, cut a 1/2” wide decorative strip.
    Attach this to top and bottom of card front.

  • Add the ornament to the center front of the white mat layer, using 3D foam squares.

  • Finish by adding a narrow ribbon bow.

Extra - Here is another sample of this same card, made with other MME papers (Holly Jolly and I Believe).
