I promised a tutorial on the square ornament I did for the Blogger’s Challenge last Friday and finally was able to finish it last night. Really very easy to do. I have a ton of stuff to accomplish today, so enough chit chat! lol! Oh, I did try to use the scallop edge punch, but it was really difficult to line up the corners evenly…and since they are so prominent, I really didn’t want to spend the time it took to figure out the correct dimensions.
Two Designer Paper designs
Coordinating cardstock color
Stamp or embellishments for decorating
Cut first layer (base) of cardstock 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
First designer paper 3 1/2 x 3 1/2
Second designer paper 3 1/4 x 3 1/4
Cardstock color 3 x 3
First designer paper 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
Second designer paper 2 1/2 x 2 1/2
Cardstock color 2 x 2
Lay base 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 cardstock square on paper. Place first designer paper (3 1/2 x 3 1/2 sparkles) a quarter turn from base and adhere to largest cardstock color.
Make another quarter turn and place second designer paper (3 1/4 x 3 1/4 stripe) over first designer paper, aligning with base cardstock.
Turn again and place cardstock (3 x 3) to line up evenly with first designer paper (sparkles) square.
Turn again and place first designer paper (2 3/4 x 2 3/4) so it lines up layered evenly with second designer paper (stripe) square.
Turn again and add second designer paper (2 1/2 x 2 1/2 stripes) lined up to cardstock layer.
Turn again and add final 2 x 2 cardstock square to center.
Finish by decorating center. I added a jumbo eyelet to the top point and ran the ribbon thru to hang the ornament.
This one I used the Small Felt Flurries and a Rhinestone brad in the center.
I love making these…so fast and easy. And, different papers, make them look completely different.
