I wanted to get one more post in before the clock chimes twelve times! I also thought that this would be a fun project to enter into the Glitter is Glam Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! Play along if you'd like http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2010/12/next-moxie-fab-world-challenge-glitter.html
Home decor has become a fun paper crafts challenge for me lately. I like the idea of creating something and then being able to hang it up in my home to look at often. I just don't get to sit down with my scrapbooks as often as what I'd like. This is a good way for me to enjoy the fruits of my labor!
I wanted to create something that I could hang up after all of the Christmas decorations were taken down. I always feel that my home looks so lonely when all of the festivities are over. However, as soon as I created it, I hung it up and haven't taken in down! I really love how it turned out and enjoyed the time I spent making it.
I used Echo Park's Wintertime collection for the banner which I have hanging from my fireplace mantel. The fun part about this was I used an old snack box of my kids' to make the cardboard pieces. Let's hear it for upcycling! I just traced the shape from a different mini album and cut it out with my craft knife.
Thanks for looking and feel free to click on the follow button! I cleaned out my craft room recently and I think that if I can get a good size base of followers, I'll do a giveaway (I adore giveaways--giving or receiving!) Many blessings to you and your family in the new year!
