As it turns out, most of my paper crafting experience has resulted in flat projects. Flat in a flattering way, meaning 2D, not 3D. When I was in Utah a couple months ago, I couldn't resist the draw of the photo on the cover of the instructions for Paper Gems. I knew immediately that I wanted to use the papers from my Rise & Shine collection and turn them into these glorious 3-dimensional delights. With Jamie's help, along with a pencil, scissors and glue, we followed the instructions in the We R Memory Keepers Triangle Score Guide and used the Trim & Score Board
We think they turned out colorful and cute! Of course I am just now thinking of this as I am typing, but these would be fun to go along with a little gift tag with the phrase, "Aren't you a gem?!" We are hoping to do more 3D paper projects now that we've tried this. Have you made these gems or any other cool things with patterned papers?
