If your running low on gift bags and bows, fear not! If your don't have time to run to the store you can make your own! If you have any paper bag and a couple of sheets of scrapbook paper you are on your way to making something fabulous. Here is what you do:
Cut 13 strips of paper 3/4 in. X 3 3/4 in.
Use double stick adhesive to attach groups of four loops together.
When you have 3 groups, stick them together alternating directions.
Place circle in center, and your have a bow!

It was so much fun to make these cards. I went to my local Paper Source store and chose some fun things to make my Christmas cards this year. I can spend hours in that store! So many fun things to see! You should absolutely go visit one near you or online at www.paper-source.com

This wreath was so much fun to make! I cut stars from the Cosmo Cricket Dear Mr. Claus line and scored them to add dimension. All paper embellishments are also from that line of papers. I added vintage tinsel, mica snowflakes, buttons and Stickles glitter to jazz it up! I think I love it! My favorite part is Frosty sliding down the rope to wish us a Merry Christmas! Keeping it short and sweet today! Until next time....

How I love all things vintage! I was working on this special project to take to a meeting on Tuesday, and I am soooooo pleased with what I came up with. I love the old photos from the 1940's of my Dad and his sisters. I copied them and made two of each in wallet size. I placed one photo on the bottom and then fussy cut the people out of the second photo and attached it with foam tape to give it a 3-D effect.
The paper and ribbon was all purchased from Paper Source. The holiday ephemera was cut using only 1 sheet of Cavellini gift wrap. You could make several projects using only the 1 sheet. Watch for the next few days and I will post more. I'm on a roll! Hope everyone has a great weekend. Do something creative with the ones you love!
