Twirling Paper Skull Ornament


Now that my new Sizzix line is out, I have some video tutorials to share with you! I filmed this paper skull ornament at the Sizzix headquarters! It uses my Day of The Dead Sugar Skull die. I designed it have the skull in the center and an outer ring in the shape of a skull. That way you can mix and match to make everything from party favors to ornaments to banners and more!

Here is the link to the video tutorial, in case you can’t see it below:

I used different colors of scrapbook paper cut into 6×6″ pieces. Then I used a different color for 2 outer rings and two skulls. Then I used string sandwiched between the layers on the top and the bottom. Once it’s all glued together, you can twirl the inside skull! I think it would be fun to make a long string of these as a banner that has a lot of movement to it. Or you can use them as cards because they fits easily inside a 5×7 envelope. You can use scrapbook paper or even tin – because the die is steel-ruled, super strong. I have a project coming up where I used it on a sheet of cured resin! But if you don’t want to go heavy like that, you can use something as light as tissue. Or even fabric!

By the way – isn’t the set awesome? The Sizzix designers did such a great job bringing it to life with my personality. I love the bright colors and the light background, it makes me want to redo my studio at home!

Lastly, I have to give a shout out to Lane Bryant for sponsoring my outfit! I wore this super cute Polka Dot Drape Overpiece with a hot pink tank and Black Ponte Circle Skirt. The necklace is also from Lane Bryant but I couldn’t find it on their site. I bet they have it in stores though. It’s made of silver sparkly rocks, very shiny and happy! Oh! And the ceramic rose ring is from my shop!


Thanks for reading my post!

Love & light,
