Are you feeling Christmassy yet?

Today was the first frost of this winter, I’m so pleased I wasn’t driving and I could stay snuggled up inside.  I do love the frost though, much better than the rain !

Well we survived the inflatable rings on the dry ski slope, it was wonderful, the birthday girl and her friends and even her big brother had a great time, I do think I gave them the biggest giggle when I fell off the ski lift, I have lots of bruises…..!

So back to Christmas, I’ve been trying out all sorts of ideas for a paper based Christmas Wreath and a few days ago I found this idea here. It’s wonderful how people share their ideas, here is my version, it is more rustic and a recycling dream!

I have ironed, yes ironed don’t faint…..( I hate ironing ) the brown paper that comes inside our Stampin’ Up! parcels, the wreath backing is the cardboard from the inside of one of our 12 x 12 designer paper packs.  I have used 1 sheet of designer paper from the Christmas Jingle kit, some ribbon and Dazzling diamonds glitter and lots of staples !!!

Here is a close up, the ribbon is Chocolate chip wide ribbon that I have coloured 2 stripes Real Red and Old Olive.


Happy Stampin’
