The flame is made from two bird wings from the Bird Builder punch. I trimmed down the orange wing with my scissors, stuck it onto the yellow wing, and then used the fine end of my black marker to draw in a wick. I then used Versamark, Heat'n'Stick and Dazzling Diamonds to glitter the flame. Finally I mounted it onto the box with a dimensional.
Here is the promised tutorial on how to make the little elf from the last post - day 10. I made a mistake when I posted the dimensions of some of the circles, so have corrected them in the day 10 post, as well as putting the correct measurements here:
Punch a 1 1/4" and 3/8" circles from Pink Pirhouette, also two part bird wings as shown in the photo. Sponge all the edges with Blushing Bride ink. Punch two 1/4" circles from Whisper White, and two 1/8" circles from Basic Black.
Stick the parts of the face together as shown, and draw a mouth using the fine end of a Real Red marker.
Punch the largest petal shape out of Wild Wasabi DSP. Punch a segment of a 1 3/4" circle from Real Red card, and stick it on to the petal as shown in the photo.
Use the 1 3/4" circle punch and punch away the bottom portion of the hat assembly as shown in the photo. I attached a post-it note to use as a handle. I stuck the post-it note on with the point marking the middle top of the lower edge of the hat brim - that way I could see where to punch.
Lay the hat in position on the head, so that the lower edge of the hat brim meets the point where the top edge of the ears join the head - as marked with the arrows above.
Carefully pick up both pieces, holding them in position together. Draw a line on the hat brim above the ears. Remove the hat and cut along this line. Turning both pieces to the front again, check that the shape of the hat brim over the ears is as you want - on my elf here, I did a little bit extra trimming to shorten the outer tips of the hat brim, and to make it look more like it's going over and behind his ears. When you are satisfied stick the hat onto the elf's head.
Add a 3/8" circle of Real Red to the point of the hat. For this elf, I have also stuck another circle of red on the back so that the tip of the hat is sandwiched between the two circles. This is because the hat sticks up above the edge of the advent calendar box, and it makes it a bit more sturdy for handling. If I was going to stick it flat on a card I wouldn't bother with the second circle.
Finally punch out a 1 3/8" circle of Wild Wasabi, attach a post-it note handle and insert the shape into the Scalloped Oval punch, and punch to create the scalloped shoulder piece. Stick behind his chin.
