Wishing you all a most wonderful Christmas, eating holiday food, engaging in family traditions, and visiting family and friends!!
I finally got the courage to try my hand at one of these. There are some. The ones out there from other artists I've seen just made me swoon. Mine not so much, but I learned a few things about the technique. One, next time I'll use a fresher/newer book. I used an older book which makes the pages a bit too delicate and the piece can get crushed with time, so a newer book will keep it looking fresh and crisp. Two, you layer the cones on top of each other in neat rows instead of randomly as I did. Use a glue gun to adhere the cones for quick work.
This one I will be gifting for Christmas.
I also finally decorated these trees which I had purchased last year for Christmas. At first I had planned to all 3 in the same style. I quickly changed my mind because it just seemed boring to me to do it that way.
The one thing that brought them all together was the glittered buttons on the bottom
This is a very cool idea for me being a night owl and otherwise unencumbered for New Year's Eve. You might want to check it out too. Sounds like a lot of fun. I just found this blog through my Google alerts and it's super cute and pack full of inspirational paper crafts. Go visit Paula's Palace and join in.
