With a few discarded mailing tubes, construction paper, and Fiskars Squeeze Punches you can craft these characters in under 20 minutes.
Traditionally, private altars paying tribute to the deceased are constructed and filled with photos, memorabilia, flowers or sugared skulls. I took inspiration from these altars to create this colorful Day of the Dead Dome Display.
Start by selecting a styro-foam disc slightly larger than your glass dome. Measure the circumference of the disc, and punch a border from colorful cardstock with your AdvantageEdge™ Punch System that is long enough to wrap around the disc. The AdvantageEdge™ will punch a strip up to twelve inches long, if your circumference exceeds twelve inches, punch another border and join the sections together with clear tape.
With your paper trimmer, cut a strip to back your punched border, and use paper glue to join the pieces together. Trim with a stripe of washi tape.
Wrap the strip around the edge of the disc and attach with decorative pins.
Cut a cardstock circle equal in size to your disc and attach with glue. Mount a glittered styro-foam skull (or several) to a bamboo skewer, and insert into the center of your disc. If the skewer is too tall for the dome, trim with your Amplify™ Mixed Media Shears – they will easily snip through the bamboo.
Punch several flower shapes with your Fuse Creativity System® or assorted floral punches from several sheets of colored cardstock. Layer the blooms and attach them to skewers with a hot glue gun.
Trim the skewers to an appropriate length, and insert them into the center section of styro-foam, filling the spaces between the glittered skulls.
Glue a few more blooms and some butterflies to the skulls and the styro-foam base.
Slip your glass dome over the arrangement, and display in a place of honor. Surround with objects or memorabilia representing the friends and family you would like to pay tribute to with this dome.
