Hello! Rachel here from Cricut with Heart, and today I'm sharing a tutorial that I made a while ago based on a 3-D Star that my friend Elvia Murray made. You can use this simple and easy trick to turn almost any of your Cricut cuts into something 3-D! Here is the star I made by using an ornament cut.
Here are all the pieces, and by turning over the 2 1/2" pieces, you can show the color on the other side.
I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score a line down the middle of each piece.
This is how the pieces will be glued together once they are scored. Notice that the green ones have 3 pieces to them, and the others have only 2 pieces.
I inked the edges of all the pieces and glued them to each other to make 5 points for each of the 3 layers. then I began to assemble the ornament by adhering the 3" points to the base circle to form a star shape.
Then the 2 1/2" green points get glued to the base in between these.
Finally, the 1 3/4" small points get glued on top. I rotated my layers a little bit. I used liquid glue to make sure it held together nice and strong.
I added a pearl to the center and on the tips. You could even glue two of these back to back to make a totally 3-D shape! I hope this inspires you to turn some of the fun Cricut cuts into something 3-D. Leave me a comment with a link to your project, and I'd love to check it out!
