I have had scraps of 4 x 4 pieces of paper with circles cut out of them from a previous project sitting on my desk for over a month. I didn't want to part with the negative pieces for a couple of reasons.....I had too many and knew they would come in handy AND I loved the DP. As soon as I saw the challenge at PDE I thought they would be perfect for a banner. Then I saw this week's sketch at DS#177 and knew this project was meant to be. This is what I came up with and I have the perfect place in mind for it...just in time for the holidays!
The letters where cut from the Cricut Storybook cartridge and pop-dotted. The Santa image is from a $1 JoAnn stamp and wet embossed with white opaque EP. Mesh bling, glitter, ribbons, twine, circle Nesties, scallop punch, CS, and mat board were used. Check out the felt covered jingle bells that I found at Michael's a few years ago which are hanging off of a TH swivel clasp. This bow would never exist without a Bow Easy.
Seriously, if I know I'm going to put glitter on a project why wouldn't I just use glitter paper instead of running it through a Xyron and pour glitter all over it? I asked myself that twice this week.
