Those are lovely - and only $6 . . . . . thats less than 3! :o Surely you wouldn't be able to make them for that price?

I dunno, it looks like it's just acetate, card and some glittery stuff

Oh yeh! I saw them at craft fair on Saturday, I saw them last year too and made up my mind to have a go, but a year later still not got round to it!
If you look down on it (birds eye view) it's like 6 pieces of acetate, 3 horizontal, 3 vertical and they have slits cut into them and then latched together. It sounds complicated! :D

Wowsers - they look good, I'd be very impressed if I made something like that.

If you do one Louise, show us & tell us how - purleeeeeeease :D:D

There is a cutting die to make these but is a bit expensive. http://www.some-assembly-required.com/index.php?section=browse&action=product-detail&view=&sku=NAS-Die+SG&img_num=4&sn=8

At $98 for that I'd rather buy 16 already made up! :D

OOOH!!!!! I love those. I've often thought of having a go myself but as they are so time consuming would it be worth it pricewise? If they can be machine cut it probably wouldn't be so bad but I haven't got a machine!!!! Is there one that would do that??????????????:confused: In the past I have bought a couple of those sort and couldn't bare to part with them!!!! I have one somewhere that is all butterflies. It's gorgeous so I had to keep it. I remember paying 4.99 a few years ago for it!!! I got it in our local garden centre and that was American. The card I mean, not the GC!! Sue xx:mf:

They look fantastic.

My friend runs an arts and craft company. Vycombe Arts. I know she has a great big reel of asitate so it can be cut to specific lengths. She also sells various ranges of paints as well.

I suppose once you have one template it wouldn't be so bad. It is just making the first one.

Good Luck

Hiya, I sell something similar on my website and on ebay. I have been making these (called sliceforms) for quite a while now.

The two best Christmas ones I have are the snowglobe and the snowflake swing card.

I sell these in 3 different formats for cutting machines (Craft Robo, KNK, and Funtime) and also in JPEG format for you to print and cut and use as a template on whatever card or ascetate you choose.

I have been selling them for 5 on ebay recently, but in the spirit of Christmas, and because this forum is so fab, the first 5 people that contact me via my website will get the snowglobe and swing card JPEGS for free. Thereafter I will sell them for 2 each (2 for the globe and 2 for the swing card). They all come with full instructions, and they are not hard, honest.

Hope I am allowed to post all of this here, if not I apologise.
