From water drop to peacock

From water drop to peacock

Make a beautiful, colourful peacock from water drops! Follow the steps in this DIY and discover the versatility of the drop as a base shape. The design of our droplet punches is perfect for creating all kinds of different craft projects, both big and small. For example, a droplet upside down becomes a balloon and several drops together become the petals of a flower.

1
Collect 6 shades of paper that match well together or use the same colours as we did. Use the small punch (21432-062: 3/8") to cut out a drop shape 18 times in the colour Lime (2928-068) and 18 times in the colour Sapphire (2928-050). Use the next size drop punch (21436-064: 5/8") to cut out shapes 18 times in the colour Lime and 12 times in the colour Sapphire. Use the 1" punch (21496-005: 1") 18 times on the colour River (2928-048) and 12 times on the colour Lime.
2
Use the 1.5" drop punch (21496-006: 1.5") to cut 1 piece out of the Sapphire paper (the head of the peacock). Punch the colour Sky 12 times (2928-044) and the colour Spa 18 times (2928-060). Use the 2" punch (21437-079: 2") 12 times on the colour Emerald (2928-058). Punch with the 3" drop punch (21439-068: 3") 2 times in the colour Lime, 1 time in the colour Emerald and 5 times in the colour Sky. Use the 3.5" punch (21493-007: 3.5") 1 time on the colour Sapphire (the body of the peacock).
3
Start by glueing the smallest Lime drops (3/8") on the larger Emerald drops (3"). Glue the body and head of the peacock on the top. Then stick the 2 Lime drops (3") on the body and do the same with the 5 Sky drops (3").
4
Take the Emerald drop (2") and stick the Sky drop (1.5") on it. Then stick the Lime drop (1") on it and finish with the Sapphire drop (5/8"). Repeat this 12 times. Take the 1.5" drop and stick the River drop (1") on it. Then stick the Lime drop (5/8") on it. Finish with a Sapphire drop (3/8"). Repeat this 18 times.
5
Apply glue to the centre of each cut-out because the drops are placed slightly over and under each other. Start by sticking 6 sets of drops of which the largest is 1.5". Then stick 5 sets of which the largest drop is 2". After this you continue pasting the smaller sets (1.5"). For the outer rim, start at the bottom left. Attach a big, small, big and small set of drops.
6
The middle of the outer edge consists of 3 large sets of drops (2"). After this, continue alternating small and large sets. Your peacock is ready!
