I’m super excited for this month’s Michaels Makers assignment. Michaels is hosting a contest where you can enter to win a trip Paris! To kick it off, all of the Makers created a paris-inspired project. What is more paris-inspired than a 16″ tall glittered eiffel tower?

Supplies:

Glitter Cardstock

Cricut Explore

Bone Folder

Ad-tech Low Temp Glue Gun

Skewer

Ribbon

I created some custom SVG files to cut on my Cricut for this project. I want to offer them for sale in my Etsy Shop, but I need to perfect them just a little bit more. This glitter card stock from Michaels is super thick, perfect for a structural project like this.

There was a lot of folding and to get a nice crisp edge on glitter card stock, I used a bone folder to crease all my folds.

I used all my trusty Ad Tech low temp glue gun to glue my 3D pieces together, And then pretty much just glued everything on top of each other starting from the top going down to the bottom.

The top was capped with this little piece, and then I put a skewer in through the middle of the top and glued it in place.

Then I adhered a little flag that I printed out, and tied on some ribbon, and voila (thats a french word, right?), my pretty glitter eiffel tower!

It’s such a beautiful decoration, now I just want to throw a paris-themed birthday party for myself!
