Control Freaks November Blog Hop - Happy Holidays

Hello, Stampers!


Welcome to the December Control Freaks Holiday Blog Hop!
Whether you are arriving from Amy's blog or just starting out here,
Sit down, relax and enjoy the holiday inspiration!


One of the thinkgs I live to do is decorate my tree for
the holidays. This is my "papercraft" tree that I will
fill with all things papercraft. I am starting out
with a glittered holiday paper garland.



I cut several shapes from the This Christmas designer papers
using various holiday shapes. Once cut, I outlined each shape using
Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details and let dry completely.
I was able to cover (24) shapes using one bottle  - a little goes a
long way! (Note, you can also use liquid glue and detailed glitter, 
just a little messier, but gives the same effect)


Once dry, I punched holes and connected them 
using Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine. 

Then, I selected a few shapes to leave blank and a few shapes
I decorated using various holiday stamps, framelits, and
embellishments. It is really up to personal preference 
how you decorate. Remember, these designer papers
are beautiful two-sided sheets and look fabulous on
their own. Keep the embellishments simple :o)

Happie Stampin'!

What a great idea! Wish we could have a tree, because I'd totally do this. Of course, the cat would have them in spreads in no time. 🙄
