Map Paper Pinecones - featuring Elmer's products

I do love a good recycling project and I'm particularly obsessed with some pages that are falling out of an old map book at the moment. I bought some paper balls at my local market haberdashery and I already had the sari silk yarn from another project so this was a pretty inexpensive make, not to mention fun!



I used...

  • Old paper (maps, book pages, wrapping paper...)
  • Circular punch
  • Elmer's Precision Embellishment Glue
  • X-ACTO Precision Tip Scissors
  • Small strips of sari silk yarn (you could use ribbon or any yarn)
  • Paper balls



Use the end of the scissors to poke a hole in the top of the ball, then push the nozzle of the embellishment glue in and squeeze a little glue into the hole. You don't need much as the glue works really well with just a little amount. Then poke the two ends of your yarn into the hole and wait a minute or two for it to fully dry.

While that's drying use your punch to cut out your circles. I used 20 circles for my wee ball.


Then cut them in half, leaving one whole.


Using the embellishment glue, attach the whole circle to the underneath of the ball.


Then start to attach the half circles around the ball, adding the embellishment glue like so.


Start with 4 at the bottom around the circle.


Then add another row. You will need more and more half circles to go around each time. Try to overlap them nicely.


Keep going! Cheesy


When you get to the top, make sure you fit the half circle right up next to the yarn.


Use 4 half circles to go around the yarn snugly.


And you're done and ready to hang!

These are so warm and lovely!

I'm working on some greeting card projects lately.  Do you think this glue would hold thicker paper stock like reusing cards for this same project?  Please say yes. Cheesy

ooooh a new glue to add to my arsenal!  These are so cute and would work with any kind of paper (like the 50 lbs of nifty scrapbook paper that I can't stop buying....)

Haha!!

Also, I think these are adorable (but I can't make myself cut up maps... I have kind of an obsession with looking at them)...

You could use normal paper, or recycle some wrapping paper, or newspaper Smiley

I bet this would work with some pages from an old hymnal.  Could this be done without the styrofoam ball?

I would think so Smiley I used a paper ball, but I'm sure you could use scrunched up newspaper with masking tape around to make a ball or cone shape. Before you start attaching the paper semi-circles, I would use a strip of masking tape to secure the string

These would actually make perfect Christmas ornaments, though I would either do them with brown shopping bags, or...something glittery. Or brown shopping bags covered in glitter. I'm kind of obsessed with glitter right now.

I'm kind of curious though, what is the embellishment glue like? Is it the same as regular school glue, but with a precision tip? Because I'd be pretty hard pressed to find any papercrafts that I can't really just use regular ol' Elmer's white glue for, but I'm always up to try something new.

I did think about dipping the edges in glitter. I hope you post if you try it!

I guess it's similar, but I thought it was more tacky, and it set pretty quickly for me. The precision tip is a great little thing too! Smiley
