Here is my take on Challenge 42 over at FunkyFairy's New Forum. This week you can choose either the fab sketch by Shaz or create something pink/blue, or do both or combine the two!!!
Take a look at the other fab creations from the DT on the forum or have a go at the challenge yourself :)
I decided to do something pink/blue and wanted to a 3D creation. I know someone did a beautiful traditional carousel last year on the cricut site but I can't remember who :(
(Just found out it was Beatriz Jennings) who does beautiful creations.
I didn't really know where to start so I just had a play on my pazzle and cricut. I used a toilet roll tube for the middle and covered it with paper. The top was made by cutting a circle and then cutting to the centre, folding and taping to create the cone shape. I then stuck this on a circle made from thick card. The base was made again by cutting a circle from thick card and then I cut a border from AE on my cricut and glued it to the base. Once I had put all the main structure together I decided to use ribbon for the poles and cut out 4 different shapes from JOTS and CC on the cricut. I cut each shape twice so when I stuck them to the ribbon they would have a front and back. To finish it off I embellished with buttons and more ribbon. All the papers for this project was from FunkyFairy's from a free download called Blue Christmas which you can find here.
