Cross Canada Hop: Christmas Decor

posted in: Home Decor | 5

Welcome to another Cross Canada Hop!  I’m excited to be back participating.  It’s been a while!  This month we are focusing on Christmas Decor.  Remember that anything you like can be purchased from your Close To My Heart consultant.

This hop is one big circle, so if you’re starting here, just keep hopping until you get back.  If you’d like to literally hop across Canada, start at Michelle’s blog.  If you arrived here from Nicky at Timeless Cottage then you’re on the right track.

Here is what I made:

I cut the ornament shape 9 times from the Snowhaven paper pack, using our Art Philosophy cartridge, folded each one in half and inked the edges with Black ink and a sponge.  Then I started gluing them together.  Before I put the last two together, I added in the loop of Baker’s Twine, with a shiny star.  Here’s a better look at that star:

It’s also cut with the Cricut, but I can’t remember which cartridge I used.  I used our Silver Glitter paper and cut two, and sandwiched the Baker’s Twine between them.  Here’s a fun shot of the top of the ornament:

Such a simple project, but with a lovely result, which is what it’s all about for me!

Now it’s time to hop on over to Sheri’s blog.  If you get lost along the way, just pop over to Michelle’s blog.  She’s got the full list of participants.

I’d love to see you try this project!  Use any paper you’ve got and link it up in the comments.  Happy Creating!
