Carousel

I wanted to bring in my Carousel as I am going to enter it into the All Crafts Challenge, Anything Goes - but a card I made the carousel from a template which all had to be cut out first before I could start on building it up. I started with the base and then the poles that were used for the horses to hold onto were made from straws. The straws had silver paper bound round them and then I did the top of the carousel. Once the top was ready I inserted the straws into the bottom of the base and then into the top of the carousel. I then cut out the horses and attached them to the straws, once everything was in place. The whole of the carousel was made with white and baby blue glitter card. I then started to embellish the carousel with various gems, silver strips, a piece of card all the way round the top of the carousel which was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. This is a very quick explanation of how I made the carousel, as it would take me a long time to explain every single step. I do hope that you like my carousel. Thank you for stopping by.
