Hi folks, Laura here today.
When I saw this ribbon I knew I wanted to recreate the little tomte in paper form. Who could possibly resist a nisse riding a pig?!
I made a pattern and paper pieced him together in matching cardstock. I tried to include all the details from Ali's design. I made it slightly dimensional by layering - I guess that is decoupage?
I attached the nisse to the card in such a way that he spins... now not only do we have a nisse riding a pig we have a flying pig!!
I'd love to give you directions on how to create a spinner card but I worked from several tutorials that I found on YouTube and still ended up wandering off on my own path. I will share clear instructions when I have them, it's on my list of things to do in the new year.
Ribbon from the Nisse collection from Crafty Ribbons
Sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps
paper from my stash
Thanks for looking!
