Hello Monday, my friends! We have a two week challenge for you, so we can all enjoy the holiday season with our families and friends!
Have a wonderful holiday season!!
This is Valerie-Jael's last week with us, and I am sure you have enjoyed her awesomely creative ideas, I know I have! We wish you the very best Valerie, and I am looking forward to what you share in the future. Thanks for joining us!
Our challenge theme is
It's a super busy time of the year, so I really did not take process shots this time, so hope you enjoy what I made.
I altered clothespins with a fun mix of red, white and blue, and snowmen. These could be a hostess gift, ornaments to clip on the tree or gift, clipped onto the napkins at the holiday dinner table, and I'm sure you can think of more!
I started by covering the clothespins with patterned paper. I used white clothespins, but you could easily paint them any color, or use natural wood. I glued the fluted star to a large button, and fancied up the wood shapes with distress oxide and glitter.
I fussy cut these cute snow people, topped them with Diamond Glaze, added sequins, beads and festive red and white thread.
I had to decorate the backs too, so added a fluted star on a button, and glued some matching bling onto them.
To turn it into a gift, it's easy to cut a piece of cardboard, cover it with patterned paper and stickers, and put it in a clear bag. I just went to my stash and found paper and stickers that would match my colors.
You could easily turn these into magnets for the fridge by decorating one side and adding a magnetic strip. Lots of possibilities!
I hope you are inspired to join the party with us at Simon Says Stamp for our Monday challenge. You have until January 1st. to enter.
Have a wonderful holiday and I'll see you in the new year!
