3D Ornament Snowflake Banner/Bunting!

3D Snowflake Bunting!
Pin It
3D Ornament, Snowflake, Flower, Tulle, 
Party/Holiday, Birthday Bunting Banner!
Because this title was TOO long!
Or for a wedding?  Oh my!
Here's what you will need:
Patterned paper...not cardstock
tape or adhesive (I use a tape gun)
hot glue gun and lots of sticks of glue!
Silicone pad, mat or trivet
I use a silicone apple hot pad and just turn it over...
Cutting device:
(scissors, silhouette cameo, stampin up or other
 ornament punches or dies)
I used the Silhouette Cameo...
 and a bunch of different shaped ornaments.
Doesn't matter which ones or what size...variety is fun!

Make a spread of ornament shapes and start cutting your patterned paper!

 You will need 4 ornaments per shape...and 2 different shapes per snowflake
so about 32-40 of each ornament per snowflake
(32 for a 4 tipped snowflake, 40 for a 5 tipped snowflake)
So, if you don't have a silhouette cameo...
you can use scissors and cut ornament shapes out of paper.
It will just take longer  :)

Once you have a bunch of ornaments, start folding
them in half, patterned side inside.
 
Here's the basic construction.
Take 4 of the same ornament, folded in.
Run a strip of tape across the top of each.
 Carefully stack up 1 on the other...
 again,
and again...

 Then one strip of tape across the top...
and my tape gun is a mess!

Fold around the 2 ends and stick them together!

Pinch tight...hope that makes sense...
 It should make it all 3D...
 
 and look like an X
 Okay, now do that 5 times.
And then 5 more times with a different shaped ornament.

Next...
put a gob of hot glue on your silicone mat.
 
 Press the ornaments gently into the hot glue...
don't burn yourself!
This is 16 pieces, 4 tipped star.
Then add the other 4 shapes of smaller size...

 Then let it cool while you make a center piece!
 

 Just accordion fold a strip of paper and glue the ends together.
 Flatten the circle to make a rosette/yo yo thing.

Hot glue it in the center!
 Add a button to the middle!
I used Stampin Up's faceted buttons

Then take some tulle, mesh, wispy fabric of somekind
(thanks Christina!)
and cut it into strips.

Fold in half the long way

Then in half the other way

Add a dot of hot glue on the fold junction

and tuck it under the ornaments and glue down near
the center or to the back of an ornament...

Then, you can EASILY peel the snowflake off the silicone mat!
This part is sooooo easy it's fun!
Then I hot glued a circle on the back...
 You can make them all different!
Add some paper rosettes...
And make a bunch!
Then I punched a hole in the tip of one, tied on some hot pink twine
and made a gorgeous bunting/banner!

And then took a million pictures of it!
 The colors I used will be perfect for my plans for Christmas...
but could easily be used for a Birthday or Holiday Banner!
Just used the colors of paper you want! 


Make some out of Red, Greens and Gold!
Perfect for Christmas tree ornaments!
Do them all in Whites or Ivory...add some doilies...
Perfect for a snowy wedding!

Make them smaller for tags on gifts!

   And the backs look great too!
Mine is hanging on the mantle now...beautiful!
Don't you just LOVE these?
What would you use them for????
