I started by cutting out the pieces needed from page 53 of the Artiste booklet. The accent 2 ornament shape.
I used one sheet of Pear and Partridge to cut them out. You'll also need to cut out a 2" circle for the base.
Here are all the pieces, and by turning over the 2 1/2" pieces, you can show the color on the other side. I forgot to cut these pieces out in solid form like Elvia did! Oh well, I went with the all lacy style :)
I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score a line down the middle of each piece.
This is how the pieces will be glued together once they are scored. Notice that the green ones have 3 pieces to them, and the others have only 2 pieces.
I inked the edges of all the pieces and glued them to each other to make 5 points for each of the 3 layers. then I began to assemble the ornament by adhering the 3" points to the base circle to form a star shape.
Then the 2 1/2" green points get glued to the base in between these.
Finally, the 1 3/4" small points get glued on top. Elvia glued hers directly on top of the middle layer, but I rotated mine a little. I used liquid glue to make sure it held together nice and strong.
I added a pearl to the center and on the tips. I couldn't decide on a ribbon, so I didn't add that yet. I may even make a second one like this and glue them together back to back to make a totally 3-D star! Let me know if you were inspired to make one of these, too, I'd love to hear from you :)
