Well folks, here is my very first offering as part of the Design Team over at Winter Wonderland: http://christmasblogchallenge.blogspot.com/. Why not hop on over and have a look-see.
Every week there is a theme for you to follow, and this week there are some goodies to win too!
This week the theme is to make a Christmas Tree Ornament.
I decided to get into my loft and find a decoration that I had which was a fold-up star shape. I thought it would be easy enough to follow the pattern of something already workable.
Turned out a bit more complex than I thought.
It involved making a pattern for two shapes, cutting them out fourteen times each and folding each in half, before assembling into seven pieces that were stuck together from the base to the middle. Then I joined them all up with two large gold coloured jump rings by making holes in the bottom of each shape set.
After that I unfolded all the shapes which makes the star form. Last job was to secure in position, which I did with some organza ribbon threaded through a couple of holes punched in the top. I decided to add a bit of decoration to it by sticking an organza bow to the middle of the shape.
Hope it is good enough. . .
