So the holidays are officially here and it's time to get those festive decorations out of storage. Or better yet------let's make some new ones!!! Making your own decorations gives a sense of pride and warmth you just can't get from a store bought trinket. Plus you've just gotta love when you have a darn good reason to be trapped in your scrapping haven all day.
Today I made a simple yet fun wall decoration. My intent is to hang it in our front window, but I haven't taken the time to move it from the livingroom wall just yet. I've been enjoying having it up and know that I won't see it anymore once the rest of our neighborhood is able to enjoy it through our front window.
Here's how it all came together:
I took three 12x12 sheets of cardstock and simply rounded the corners. On top of that I attached 11" sunbursts that were cut on my Imagine from the Fancy Frames cartridge. The next layer is my new favorite thing to do---rosettes. There are three different sizes to add a little visual interest. HERE you will find a good video by Splitcoast Stampers if you need help with making your rosettes. Finally I layered some Cricut cuts from the Christmas Cheer cartridge. Each of them was cut at 3" height.
