Holiday Crafting

December 7, 2009

Last night I attended my Circle of Friendship Holiday party. We each had to bring a gift for another person. It could be anything, but it had to be $15.00 and under. Everyone got creative using coupons and sales trying to keep the gift under that amount. So many gifts were given, stolen and finally received. I decided that I wanted to give a little bit of myself this year, and crafted up some holiday decorations for my lovely recipient. For this bird ornament I used a recent gift from Marsha that included this chipboard birds. Thank you Marsha for your lovely gift! I will be making some more of these lovely bird ornaments for my tree.

I used Graphic 45 Christmas Line, added a little greenery, ribbon and berry pick and then added a dash of fine glass glitter. So easy to make and I think it turned out so beautiful. (This gives me a good idea for my Christmas ornament next year!) I then crafted the Loved Christmas Banner by using an vintage album page, adding Glimmer mist to the bingo card and then added all the extra goodies topping it off with some vintage snow and fine glass glitter to give it some frosting.

This lovely gift finally rested in Julie's hands, after she had it stolen from her before in our game. Julie, I hope you enjoy them!
