Flowers in there and BUTTERFLIES too !

This is another sliceform globe that this time is
8 inches tall and has daisy flowers added in there
(which was a challenge in itself to get them to stay
standing up (guess it is all part of learning how to
make them))

Hung the butterflies on the top so as they
wiggle a little when it is moved



All folds down flat for putting in envelope

Story about a LITTLE TEDDY BEAR part 8 (slice form)

Follow on story from part one HERE , part 2 HERE
, part 3 HERE , part 4 HERE , part 5 HERE , part 6 HERE
and part 7 HERE

I had said in the part 6 that i would not have gone any
smaller with the bear as it would have made the slits to
small so what i did was went back and made the bear smaller
and then I made the slits normal size so as I could have a small
bear (how small?) he is 2 inches tall Hard to put together but
soo cute
Below is the picture beside the 8" bear the tallest i could
get on my baby cricut machine

Here you can see the arrange of sizes i have created


The big one is like a mummy bear holding his baby

How to make decoration from Frame dies number 01

I showed a decoration that i had made for the
alota challenge yesterday and today i thought i would
show the quick lesson in how i made it .
LETS BEGIN
take any shaped frame die (as long as it is symmetrical)
and cut four of them

Now fold them in half with right side folded inwards

Fold all four pieces

Cut a piece of string 2 1/2 times longer that you want it to be
when made up

Fold in half and tie a knot in the end about 1 inch
from the ends of the string

Take to of the frames and glue them together
on one of the half frames ( as shown)

Now add the string with the knot to the inside of
the frame (slightly separating the string so it
is one piece on each half of the frame)

now glue the two sets together

and it will look like this

now you take an image that has a front and a back
(in this case i used the robot stamps from alota which has
the left and right robots)

Glue on to the string so the top is just under the knot

Then glue the other to the back of that one

And you have your frame dies decoration
