Making the 3D Paper Quartz Gem

  1. On a cutting mat, trace around the outer edge of the template on the back side of the scrapbook paper. Note that heavy weight scrapbook paper is ideal but not necessary.
  2. Using the scoring tool, score within all the guided scoring tracks on your template. To do this, move the stylus back and forth a few times applying light pressure.
  3. Next, remove the template and cut around the traced lines.
  4. Once the template is cut out, fold along the scored lines.
  5. Lastly, apply hot glue to assemble the box leaving one end (top) open. It is up to you on what side of the gem you would like to be the top of the ornament.
