  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Freehand a mushroom shape in the size you need onto your Graphic 45 paper.

    Step 2

    This will be your template. So cut it out the. Draw it onto the other papers you will be using. I'm using a mixture of Typography, An Eerie Tale, and Steampunk Spells.

    Step 3

    Cut out your shapes. I stacked 3 layers of paper at a time to make cutting quicker. Then ink all of your edges really well. I used Frayed Burlap distress ink.

    Step 4

    Fold each mushroom I half and use a home folder to get a good crease.

    Step 5

    Add a very thin line of glue down the fold of each mushroom. Then start placing them on top of each other.

    Step 6

    Hold ech one in place for a moment for glue to set. Fan them out more n more as you go.continue until you have it as full as you like. For my terrarium I did a semicircle , or it would be too big.

    Step 7

    This is what it looks like inside my terrarium.

    Step 8

    And with the lid off. This technique applies to anything you want to make 3d. I added more Graphic 45 images and Petaloo flowers to complete mine.
