Kusdama flower ball

This weeks project took me Hours and Lots of paper folding/gluing

Start with a 2" sqaure

 Fold it in half to form a triangle

 Than take the corner & bring in down on itself - do this on both sides
 To get this!
 Undo that & fold the little flap up like this, it should already have the fold there just follow it
 To get this
 This can be alittle tricky if you haven't done it before but Im hoping this pictures help, grab that fold and put it down
 Like this
 to get this
 Again the folds are already there for this but fold that bit you just squashed in half, I toook this pictures in the wrong order but undo this and fold that top bit down
 Like this

 Now fold in half, I used a stapler to hold it together but seems tombow glue works great too :)

Do alot of these petals & stick them all together I found 7 formed a perfect lower keep going until you have 12 whole flowers (not the best pictures as Im sat on the floor ready for using my glue gun
Once that is all done you need to stick the flowers together to form a ball, stick 6 together first than the next 6 to get two halfs than stick them together to get this ... I used my hole punch to punch a hole in two petals and inserted a ribbon for hanging purposes

I hope you enjoyed :D

Mini glitter hearts

I absolutely love my SU punches and thought what better way to put them to even better use and punch 100 at a time and bag them up for sale :) theu would make perfect card making or scrap booking accessories or even weding table confetti 

I hand stamped the letters with my individual alphabet stamp

These are for sale on my site www.stickandglue.co.uk for £2 free shipping head on over before they sell out ;)

pryimid boxes

I knew exactly what I wanted to show you this weekend but couldn't quiet figure it out so I surfed the net and came back with this ...

Take a piece of 8x8 card or paper of your choice and cut it in half

 Mark the half at 2 iches on both end
 Now score in the middle and using the mark you just made as a guide use a ruler or your score board to do a triangle on both ends ... like so ;)

 when joined up your box should look like this

 using a hole punch punch 4 holes two on each end fold
 and thread your ribbon

 you have your box, it is however smal so would make a perfect favor or treat box :D

 Items used - 

* Love letter paper
* stampin up trimer for both cutting and scoring
* Hole punch
* ribbon

easy peasy right? ;)
