Shower Party Decorations with a Sliceform Heart and a Sliceform Wedding Bell

I had a wedding shower party at my house for my daughter.  Of course, I had to make paper decorations.  Here are a few of the decorations.. a sliceform heart and a sliceform wedding bell.

Here is the PDF. 
Here is the .Studio file.

The slice form wedding bell and slice form heart have similar directions as the slice form bride.  Please refer to those directions to http://papercraftetc.blogspot.com/2017/03/slice-form-bride-and-groom-cake-topper.html Slide one slit into another...first the bottom slit and then the top slit...stacking them one on top of another as you go.  Tape the outside edge and then glue to the backing.  I use two backings to give it extra support.
Happy Wedding Shower Day!

Triskele Sphere and Cube


Triskele Sphere and Cube

I came across a triskele sphere at this website, http://hattifant.com/triskele-paper-globes/. I was intrigued by the sphere and I tweaked their design to make my sphere.

Two sizes of the Triskele Sphere

I then decided to modify the height of the arc by decreasing its size. In doing so, I discovered that I had to increase the width of the band to accommodate the difference.  These modifications of the original triskele design resulted in a cube.

My patterns include two sizes  for each of the triskele balls. There are three bands which interlock to form the structure. Here are the directions to construct the smaller one.

To construct the larger one, glue two of the larger designs together to make one band.  Repeat to make the other two bands. The construction is the same as the smaller one.
