3-D SHAPE TUTORIAL - by Outlawz DT member Theresa
This is a short pictorial that illustrates how to make 3-dimensional shapes for paper crafts.
In this case, we are making a heart shape, but the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. You could use bells, ovals, circles, triangles, diamonds, squares, etc.Materials:
• Paper(s) of your choice
• Cutting tool for shape – can be a punch, a die, an electronic cutting machine, or even precut shapes that you purchased
• Bone folder (or some tool to crease your folds)
• Glue of your choice (I am using a liquid type of glue, but you can use anything that sticks)
In this first photo, I have precut my heart shapes using the punch in the picture. I have 7 hearts punched, but you can use more or less shapes depending on how full you want your design to be.
Next, we need to fold each heart in half with the “mirror” sides facing each other as shown in the following photo. In my example, I am using all the shapes of a single color, but you can use two different colors and alternate them for some added interest.
And here you see all of the shapes folded. Baby came along to help make sure I was doing everything just right – I think she might have been questioning my choice of adhesive, but as I said earlier, you can use whatever you have on hand that sticks.
The next step is to start adhering the shapes together.
In this case, you want to adhere one “petal” or “side” of each shape to a matching side of the next cutout. See the photo below for the first two shapes glued together.
And here is the finished heart with all 7 of the shapes glued together. The more accurate you are with your folding and gluing, the better the shape will look. As you can see if you look closely, I was off a bit on my gluing, so you can see a few of the white edges from the backsides of the paper, since this was not a double-sided paper. You can finish the edges with some Stickles or glitter to add some more flair and cover up those edges if you like.
And this final photo is where I used the shape to make a card.
One nice thing about these 3D shapes is that they fold flat if you put them in an envelope. You can also use this same heart shape as a hot air balloon or a flower, which I did recently on a layout I made for my daughter’s graduation. Again, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
This is another gorgeous 3D project by Theresa.
Anne another of my team members from The Outlawz made this beautiful 3D project
and this gorgeous Easel card using Ippity set Straight from the Heart
My 3D card uses a Spellbinders Die to cut the butterfly and Ippity set All Things are Possible
