I am happy to say that I have a significant jump on next year's Christmas crafting! So, without further ado, here are the projects that I created.
I started with this adorable little altered box. The strips of red and blue came in the kit and when I saw them, I just knew I had to make a fancy bow with them. The box itself was something I picked up on the dollar rack at Micheals. You could use any small box or even make it by folding the paper.Other than the box, the only thing I added to the kit for this project was the brown twine.
Next, I wanted to make a layout. This, unfortunately, didn't photograph all that well. The photo is just not doing justice to the rich colors and glimmer of the glitter. Here, I added the red cardstock and some ink, which I sponged onto the corners of the cardstock to distress it. I also used the ink around the photos and the stickers. I applied the glitter which came in the kit, with Glossy accents to the holly berries and the dot on the celebrations sticker.
