I would have never thought of the pieces. Ingenious!
Edit: How did you manage to glue the thin pieces together? Glue used?
Edit2: I see that they have some thickness to them- glue and lightly clamp or tape to hold?

Another post- the wife loved the boxes and the ribbons! She asked how you did the ribbons. Showed here the pieces for the ribbons and she thought that was a good idea.

Gluing is simple, just 3 pieces, each 1/4 inch. Glued and clamped, so they are 3/4 inch thick when done. Stick a pattern on it and cut them out. If your careful, you can get all the parts from a 2 1/2 by 10 inch piece, of course, itís three that size and then laminated together.

They are laminated and cut on edge. A teardrop shape with the center cut out.

I'm hungry and those look like bacon so much that I'm salivating!

Thanks for the how-to, I would never have figured how they were done. Not planning to ever do something similar, just knowing how to do it is fun.

Ken, were these cut out on a scroll saw? I'm thinking they were.
