Faceted Ornament Tutorial
Today’s project is another faceted ornament! Thank you to fellow French demonstrator, Sonia Benedetti, for the inspiration! She also created a stunning wreath consisting of 8 of these faceted ornaments!
Here’s another angle:
I “pixie-fied” Sonia’s measurements – converted them from metric and then changed them to be able to use 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock!
I also tried to figure out an easy way to cut the triangle Designer Series Paper pieces. While not perfect, I did come up with an easy way to cut them while saving paper!
I’ve shared a similar tutorial before, but more of a round faceted ornament. These are so fun to make and WAY easier than they look! Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:
And here’s the template for the ornament:
Here’s the template for the triangle pieces:
