We are in the last minutes before the really big day arrives. We will be gathering with some of our family starting this evening, when we enjoy a meal and go to church together. In the morning we always start with our stockings before having a wonderful breakfast together. Then it's on to the gifts, lounging about and then a big meal where a couple more family members will join us. I love all the time with family and friends, and then I dearly love Boxing Day; a day where there are no expectations and I can blob out for the whole day.
The two ornaments on this card were created using the Going 3D technique. Here's how you can do it yourself.
- Punch 5 identical shapes from cardstock or patterned paper with a punch or die cut; for the sample I used a blend of both. It is very important that the shape be symmetrical for it to work correctly.
- Fold each of the shapes in half.
- Adhere the left side of one shape to the right side of another. Keep repeating this until all five are connected. Do not join the last one to the first one – you want the back side to be flat.
- Glue the piece to your project and enjoy the 3D effect!
