Manuel Canovas decoupage Christmas bauble - Tutorial
I would like to show you a quick "how to make your decoupage Christmas baubles " here below.
First step :
Go check out those interior decorating magazines you love till you find some pages with fabrics or wall papers you absolutely adore. I picked the ones here below. Now you have your decoupage material.
Step 2 :
Take 1 of these A4 size sheets and fold it lenghtwise , like below.
Then fold that double like below.
Take a pair of scissors and cut a quarter-circle out of the paper, cutting from the bottom right to the top left of the double folded square, like below.
Unfold.You will now have a symmetrical circle.
Make triangular shaped cuts all around the circle till you end up with an 8-pointed star shape.
Turn the paper star around on your worktop so the good side ( with the decorated paper you want to display ) is lying face down .
You should now be looking at the side of the paper star you don't want to have on the outside of the bauble.Take some glue/ gluestick and spread this thinly on this wrong side of the paper star.
Take a plain white or silver bauble. Put the bauble in the middle of the glued paper star. Fold the 8 arms of the star carefully around the bauble and press around the bauble and hold till it sticks to it.
Attach a colourful ribbon around the bauble that matches / contrasts ( whatever you like ).
