Eiffel Tower – Further Proof I May be a Little Crazy

7 10 2017

I’ve had this file for a while. I’ve wanted to make it for a while. It seemed like quite the undertaking, but my daughter’s having a Paris themed birthday party so this really seemed like a good time to try it out.

It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be 🙂

Some tips, though, in case you want to give this a whirl.

1. Because of the intricate cuts, don’t use an ultra sticky mat. Obviously, it needs to be sticky enough to hold the paper, but you need it to release the paper easily, too, or all those little pieces can tear.

2. Be patient while your machine cuts the pieces out. Mine took a bit, but it cut well, so it was worth it 🙂

3. Temporary adhesive is your friend. So many similar pieces, but there are different. While placing the top pieces on (in my case the black pieces) i used temporary adhesive to get the pieces where I needed them then went back and added permanent adhesive.

4. Have fun 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
