You will need 14 pieces of scrapbook paper measuring 6 inches x 6 inches.
You will need 10 pieces of a complimentary scrapbook paper measuring 4 inches x 4 inches
You will need 1/2 piece of blank copy paper for the fringed centre.
You will need 3 pieces of heavier cardstock measuring about 2 inches by two inches for the backing...
Take your piece of paper ( 6 inches x 6 inches)...
Fold it corner to corner with the patterned side facing out as shown.
Start with the left hand corner, and bring the point up to the tip of the triangle.
Now finish the crease as shown.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the other side...like this.
Start with the left hand side again, pulling the flap back on itself as shown.
Complete the crease as shown, repeat steps 7 and 8 for the other side.
Here we are...this is what your module should look like now. :)
Now stick your index finger inside the left flap as shown.
...and flatten out like this. Do the same for the right side.
Okay, this is what you should have so far.
Left flap again...Simply fold down the tip as far as it will go. Crease.
Fold down the tip on the right flap as far as it will go. This is what your module looks like so far.
Left flap again...See picture...fold up the left half of the flap.
Just like this.....
Let's do the other side...
Okay...this is what your module looks like now.
Add a glue dot to the left flap...Do you see it?
Start bring the flaps together as shown. The glue dot creates an instant bond.
Congrats! You've made your first model....now make another one.....
Now add a glue dot to the side of the module shown here.
Stick the two together. Continue until you make a complete circle which will be a total of 14 modules.
Great job! Now lets reinforce the back a little bit....
Take a 2 inch x 2 inch piece of heavy cardstock and put a couple pieces of double sided tape on it.
I stuck a slightly smaller piece on top of it (so you could easily see) and reinforces the project.
Add double sided tape to the other side of the bright pink piece of card stock, and stick it directly onto the back. Nice and strong! :)
Let's use our complimentary paper now in 4 inch x 4 inch squares...You will need a total of 10 modules to complete the inner ring....
Here we go...same strategy as before to create these modules....
Using a glue dot to the back of the module and to the side of the module (to stick these guys together to themselves AS WELL AS to the larger ring) complete the small ring...
There we go! Inner ring finished...Now for the centre....
Using a strip of copy paper....create a fringe by cutting very thin strips about 2/3 of the way down as shown.
Using your scissors, curl the fringed paper.
Twist the uncut portion of the paper in a tube as shown. Use double sided tape to hold it in place, and then stick inside the centre of your snow blossom...make about three of these.
Ta Da! You did it...Now for the ribbon....Turn over snow blossom...
Add double sided tape, and stick decorative ribbon to it as shown.
Add sa smaller piece of cardstock to the back to nicely hide the adhered ribbon. :)
You did it! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. :)
