This is Gaby and am thrilled to have remembered that the 15th is the third Thursday in December and not the second.... long story.... Sheila knows... :) -- On to my project!
Splitcoaststampers. Becca created a honeycomb ornament using a Spellbinders die and I, my Cricut E2.
Step One - Cut 18 of the same design. Since the paper was thin, I selected the thin paper option, but it suggested I set my blade to 5. I chose to set my blade at 4 and it worked perfectly!
Fold the 18 pieces in half.
I used the thinnest paper I had.
I could not find text paper or
thinner paper at my local
craft store and was a bit hesitant to
cut text/book paper on my E2.
The thinner the
paper, the better results
you will get.
Step Three - Use one of the negative spaces to mark ones and twos, alternating the numbers. This will be your template so that you don't forget/get lost placing the adhesive. How did I decide where each number was placed? This is almost identical to Becca's but she did not explain the logic. Mine is that at each curb I had to have one of each, so I started with my biggest curb on the design and marked a one.... from there I just alternated the one and two.
Step Four - Adhere strong adhesive at each point (you can start with the ones or the twos, I started with the ones such as Becca).
Step Five - Add adhesive to the number twos.... alternating on all 18 pieces....
Last step is to embellished as desired.
I almost cut the upper part of the design because I did not think I needed it, but am glad I left it alone. I like how that extra top part looks in the ornament.
I just added a bow and some sugared berries.
