A paper waist band with a paper and tulle rondelle. Decorated with wax beads, gold thread and punched out butterflies.
How to do it
Cut out five circles, each with a diameter of 5cm and one circle with a diameter of 4cm.
Fold the five circles in half.
Attach a Glue Dot on the edge of each folded circle.
Then fold in 1/3 of the half circle towards the remaining 2/3 of the circle. Do not press the edges flat. Fold the other four circles using the same procedure.
Attach two Glue Dots onto the back of each of the five folded circles (along the edges).
Attach the first of the five folded circles onto the small 4cm diameter circle; the tip in the middle of the circle.
Attach the remaining four assembled circles as shown:
Gather a piece of tulle measuring 4 x 50cm using tacking stitches.
Tighten the piece of gold thread to make a rondelle. Tie a knot.
Push the gold thread up through the middle of the paper rondelle and through a button as shown.
Feed the gold thread back through the holes of the button. Tie a knot on each ends of the gold thread and glue small punched out butterflies onto the ends of the gold thread.
Make a waist band from two pieces of paper – cut one piece with a pair of edged scissors. The largest of the two should measure 5 x 20cm - cut the other piece slightly smaller. Glue the two pieces together and cut a notch in each end. Assemble by inserting each end into the notches as shown in the photo.
Glue the small tulle and paper rondelle onto the waist band using a glue gun.
