Very Gelli Ornament with tutorial III.

icicles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First of all you need to have a gelli print, I chose light blue and white, and used the stencil echoes with it. I made my prints double sided, so it will be colorful from all the sides. If you do so, don’t use deli paper or rice paper, they are to thin for double sided prints. Here we go, my echoes print:

gelli print

trimming prints

 

 

First I trimmed my prints, as I always work on bigger size of paper than the actual size of my gelli-arts plate.

cutting squares

 

 

 

 

As I work on 8’x10′ plate I had to make squares first, easy pie, fold the print to a triangle, there you go with the squares. If you use 6’x6′ plate, you can skip that step.

6 squares folded

 

 

 

 

You will need six squares to one snowflake. Fold the squares to triangles. These are 8’x8′ squares.

fold the triangles again

six small triangles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fold the triangles into half till you get six small triangles, so squares folded to triangle and triangle folded again.

1 cm from folded side

 

 

Measure up 1 cm from the folded side.

2 cm from longest edge

 

 

 

 

 

 

Measure up 2 cm from longest edge, you’ll need 3x to measure.

measurements

cut in every 2 cm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cut in every 2 cm measurements till 1 cm from folded side.

open it up

 

 

 

 

 

That’s what you get if you open your triangles.

glue middle ring together

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fold the 2 corners towards the middle and glue them together.

second ring

 

 

 

 

 

Flip square and fold second corners towards middle, glue them together.

third ring

first icicle

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you folded good you got your first icicle. If you want to see the photos in bigger size click on my flickr page.

6 icicles on top of each other

Make 6 icicles for 1 snowflake! If you work on smaller size than 8’x8′ you need to reduce the cuts with 2 mm.

glue 3 and 3 icicles together

3 by 3 glue the icicles together at the bottom.

connect the 2 halves with stapler

And finally connect the 2 haves with a stapler. You can connect the sides of the icicles as well. And tadaah:

snowflake

icicles
