Today's tutorial: Honeycomb Ornament
Author: Becca Feeken (Becca Stamps)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Honeycomb Ornament
Keyword: 2018BLITZ6
Date: Nov. 11, 2018

I took Becca's beautiful ornament and turned it into a pumpkin for some Thanksgiving decor! I used 9 3 1/8" ovals for mine and did the glue dots in the same position - if you were looking at a clock I did 9 o'clock, 6 o'clock and 3 o'clock for the first layer, and then like between 7 &8 and between 4 & 5 for the second layer and then back to the first pattern - basically the same as she shows in the video.

I loved to make my big honeycomb ball and the small balloon too it's really fun and not as difficult as you think I'll put 2 pictures in thumbnail to show the glue lines from my big ball

The placement of my glue dots was a bit off so it didn't come out as expected, but I gave it a good try!

Anita, sorry to put you to extra work! I think I figured it out and I got a much better honeycomb this time! My biggest problem was heavy paper and tape that wasn't strong. But this came out so much better than my last attempt! Thank you!

I finished already so show the pictures if this can help someone

you fold the circles and each circle has a tape line on the inside in the middle


then you put on top of each circle 2 parts of tape on each side like here



than you peel off the protection of the double side tape from the next layer and glue it on the first one



and you continue till you finish all the circles this one has got 12 circles really light paper such as colored paper for your printer



I hope this is helpful

That's very helpful! I'm going to give it another go once I get some lighter weight paper. Thanks so much for sharing it!

One more attempt. Even better because I made the circles bigger and used a better glue, but the paper was still a bit thick.

Smile 2018BLITZ6 Holiday Acorn

This was fun! I used an acorn punch, applied to turquoise origami paper and starred vellum paper. Here's a closeup of the ornament, and a shot of the full ornament, set against my snowy paper holiday home.

I love that hack Anita!! I'll do that next time!

Kathy - the thinner the better - that's why I used copy paper for my prints.

I can add the video now that it's published.

Well slap me silly. I never thought of using gel prints from copy paper. The only copy weight paper I had was white! Duh! Must be the headache that shut my brain down!
