I had planed to show you a lovely glass bauble I had decorated with permanent pens, liquid pearls and punched snowflakes but then I dropped it while taking the photo! It was really pretty.
So instead I made a punched paper bauble.
|The finished bauble, its about 4" across.|
|Using the new Woodware crafty Edger and|
cassette that comes with it.
|Punch four strips from a 12" piece of scrapbook card.|
|Cut four 1cm wide strips of the same card.|
I cut extra just in case!
Punch a snowflake from same card.
|Mark the centre or each strip and make a hole.|
|Push the brad through the snowflake and make a cross|
with the strips, pushing the brad through the holes.
|Add the other strips, alternating the punched and plain.|
|When you turn it over you see the snowflake and brad.|
|The inside of the bauble showing the secured brad.|
|Bring up the other ends, overlap and stick with PVA glue.|
|All the ends are now stuck to form the bauble shape.|
You can always stick another snowflake over this end.
|The top of the bauble.|
|Add some cord to hang the bauble, I wrapped mine under|
the brad and wound it round a couple of time.s
Decorate with more punched snowflakes around the bauble.
