3D Acorn (Finished Picture)
And wait till you see the free file I used from SVG Cuts to make this. I made the above from this free file from SVG Cuts called "Oak Leaves Corner Element"
I used the paper piecing of the Acorn. And I made it really big from the original file. I cut this 6x6. And I cut 8 of the bottom layer and 8 of the caps. I then embossed them with my Cuttle bug swirl folder. Then inked the swirls.
Then I used the same folding technique as I did with my Folded 3D Pumpkins (in the post below this one). I did that, by folding each image in half and glued them one by one together. Then glued the last ones together.
Then I folded the caps and started gluing those on. Now keep in mind. If you are going to emboss them like I did. CD folder Swirls and the Mesh on the top. This will change the size of your paper. So you might have to trim just a little on the edges. And I mean just a tiny amount.
So what I did was trim the little bit and then inked it so you couldn't tell. I also cut one half the size and put it together the same way.
I then cut the top part of the leaves in the file. And glued the stems on and added a small piece of ribbon. .
I think these turned out so cute and will look great with my Fall Mantle Decoration. What do you think?
I have two more Reveals to post and then I will post the finished project.
Thanks for stopping by!
