Sliceform Christmas Ornament

Second try! I changed some of the slot positions. It's a little more stable.

I have checked the templates about a zillion times. For some reason not all of the slots are saving between formats. I THINK they are all there now, but if something's missing it's not you! Let me know if something is amiss.

I added the candle details and the glitter before I assembled the ornament. I'm on the fence about whether it would have been less messy to glitter at the end. It's up to you.

Assemble from the middle out: largest two pieces slotted together at their centers, then add the medium size pieces, then the smallest.

The flat side of the "cut-off" pieces face the front.

You will see that the sides of the smallest pieces have to go in a closed slot. I fold up the two bottom tabs on each small piece, slide through and then unfold. (See the fish bowl sliceform for another picture of this.)

WOW that fishbowl is great and I love the acorn too, also the snow flake. They're all beautiful and so much work but what an impression they'd make. I would love to have something in SVG if at all possible...wish I knew how to convert them but I don't. Thanks for sharing your lovely work. I'm going to keep checking back on your blog...Thanks again Smiles Carolyn

If you open a PDF in Inkscape, you can then save it as an SVG. You may need to join up some of the unattached nodes for it to work with SCAL or MTC.
