You know it!
You know that I LOVE Christmas and that I get
started with all things Christmas in July. Yep, they totally
stole the "Christmas in July" concept from ME!
As promised, here are the FESTIVE projects that I crafted
for the AUTHENTIQUE PAPER booth at CHA.
These were so super-simple to make...I whipped up five of these within a hour.
For each ornament you will need:
- EIGHT- 1.5 x 12" strips of desired FESTIVE paper
- Hole Punch
- Chipboard snowflakes that have been glittered
- Thin floss for hanging
From those strips, cut these variations:
- TWO strips of 12"
- TWO strips 10.5"
- TWO strips 9"
- TWO strips 8"
- ONE strip of 8" cardstock...this will not be seen, so anything will do.
First, adhere the two 8" strips to the piece of cardstock...this is your center.
Begin adding your 9" strips, then the 10.5" strips, etc. around the center; stapling or gluing
so that the ends match up on top and bottom.
I added a bit of scrap paper to cover up where all of the ends met.
Hole punch; add desired string at the top for hanging.
Embellish as desired!
Finally, I have a little 'rosette' tree centerpiece that I made by
graduating the sizes of my rosettes.
and cut to 1/2" widths and covered with FESTIVE paper. Using a strong, quick
drying glue, I then attached the rosettes and allowed to dry overnight.
I had the best time embellishing with holly leaves, red pom poms, punched
snowflakes and cardstock stickers from FESTIVE!
