3D Acorn (SVG CUTS)

This is the second part of my "Fall Mantle Decoration"

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!
