Schwibbogen Decoration
assembly instructions below

Please scroll down for different design assembly 

Starry Night 
Tealight style Schwibbogen
The Tree design and lantern design also goes the same way

Layer the arches in this order so that the vellum is sandwiched by the 2 front arch sections. Do the same for the back arch 

Your finishes arch section will look like this

Glue the spacer where you see the green highlight on the image to the right

There are dash location marks on the arches for you to line the spacers up with the glue tabs fold upwards

Now fold the other end of the spacer upwards and apply glue 

Line up the second arch with the glue tabs making sure you keep it in line with the other arch as you see in the lower image on the left

Now slot the bottom of the arches into the base open out the glue tabs and glue in place thi will make the arch stand upright.

The spacers are also tea light shelves they just sit on the shelf

 Woodland walk
String light style Schwibbogen

 There are 3 arches to the design

Step 1
Cut 2 of each arch and glue together for strength
Step 2
add the spacers to the back arch using the dash line location marks, glue tabs fold upwards
step 3
fold the other side of the glue tabs upwards and  apply glue and put the middle arch over the top and position so that the glue tabs fall in the same place as on the the one you already did. 
step 4 
do the same again for the front arch
Then open the arch out so that it's now a 3D object like in the image above bottom right

slot the bottom tabs of the 3 arches in to the 3 slots on the base section
Open out the glue tabs and glue in place, then stand the arches upright and let dry.
