We see ruffles everywhere we look. Make this girly, frilly lamp with layers of ruffles designed by Amber Packer.
Supplies (as designed):
2 - Dolled Up 6 x 6 pad (I was able to use only one, but you may want to have another one handy)
1 - Dolled Up "Living" Wood die cut
1 - Dolled Up "Princess" Layered stickers
1 - Dolled Up "Day" Pins & Buttons
1 - Dolled Up "Cute" Twine
1 - Stella & Rose "Boy" Trims (1 1/2" black & white striped ribbon)
Also Used: Small drum lamp shade (I bought mine for $10 at Target, be sure to check your local thrift store), hot glue gun, black ink pad, 2 1/2" hole punch, pop dots, needle, water bottle and pencil.
***Disclaimer: LED light bulbs do not get hot, so you can have paper on the lamp shade. If you use an incandescent bulb, make sure your lamp shade is far enough away that the shade won't get hot (you will also want to use glue sticks made to get hot)***
1.Pull out all 24 sheets from the 6x6 pad and punch four circles from each.
2.Lightly ink edges of all pieces (making sure to use both front and back sides). You can also ink edges one at a time as you create your lamp.
3.My lamp shade is 7" tall. I overlapped 5 rows of circles. One 6x6 pad was enough to cover it. If your lamp shade is larger, you will need another 6x6 pad.
4.Decide how far apart you would like your layers to be and lightly mark with pencil on lamp shade.
5.Starting with the bottom row, begin adhering circles to lamp shade by slightly overlapping the circle. Apply glue to the top half only so that you can curl edges later.
6.Proceed to complete the remaining rows moving row by row until you have finished the top row.
7.Lightly spritz circles with water and curl up bottom edges using a pencil. Add a finishing touch by curling the top of top row circles as well.
8.Fold ribbon in half and sew three buttons to one end. Tuck under middle row so trim is on bottom 1/3 of lamp shade.
9.Add butterfly layered sticker to wood die cut and add to lamp shade using pop dots.
10.Add to lamp and ENJOY!
