Sweet Stars

Wooo Its Friday and lucky me I get a trip to the dentist!

I love chocolate and sweets maybe a little too much so I have to take really good care of my teeth if anything I am a little paranoid about them falling out but my trips to the dentist usually don’t result in anything bad. I have had a lot of problems with my wisdom teeth in the past though so I make sure to go for regular check ups.

Speaking of sweets I have a fantastic 3D project for you this week using the doughnut paper from the Cherry on Top DSP and the Stars framelits.

Isn’t it gorgeous? Its a star box meaning the top comes off and you can put sweeties in and give it as a gift.

I am actually super impressed with my self this week. I normally find 3D projects difficult but I found this really easy to follow video on YouTube by a lovely Australasian demonstrator, which you can find it here.

To start with I used the largest star framelit to cut 2 large stars from the Cherry on Top DSP these form the base for the box lid and bottom. Next I cut 4 strips of Bermuda Bay card stock measuring 4cm by 21cm. Each of these was then scored at 4cm intervals and 1cm on the length. The woman in the video had a great technique for notching the tabs. Not sure it would work on other projects but it differently helped make this one quicker. Next I glue the tabs and glue two of the strips together to form a circle then put some glue on the reverse side of my star all along the edge and then stuck each tab to a corresponding edge.

Now this is the ingenious bit about this project (or at least I thought it was haha) glue the two remaining strips together and this time put glue on each of the tabs then position this in side of the first star with the tabs facing up then stick your other star onto those tabs, leave it to dry if your using tombo and then wallah its a star box with a lid!

Now for decoration I used a strip of card cut of and cherry on top dsp which I curled with my bone folder and positioned at an angle on top of each other I then cut a few pieces of silver ribbon and stuck it to the back of this center piece before sticking it to the box. For the cloud I used a stamp from I think Your Great stamp set and stuck this on with a dimensionals.

Not sure how I am going to top this one next week but thanks for stopping by, come back again soon.
