I used Graphic 45 - Nutcracker Sweet and did a lot of fussy cutting. The base of the snowflake has three layers, two cut out of patterned paper and one out of thin chipboard. I used Mod Podge on each individual layer and added the dimensional diamonds to the center. I used Mod Podge to glue all three layers together and let them dry overnight. This made the ornament very sturdy.
While the base was drying I cut multiples of the same image and layered them with foam tape for dimension. I inked all the edges and used Mod Podge on all the individual pieces. While the pieces were still wet I molded them, adding waves in the banners, ripples in the ballerina skirts and molded the page cut out to make it look more like a book. These were also left to dry overnight.
The next day everything was ready to assemble. This is one of my favorite paper collections and I am very please with how my ornaments turned out.
Thank you for stopping by.
