My Christmas Projects

 Yes, it's late, and yes, I'm sorry.  December turned out to be kind of a bust in the crafting department.  My hubby and I both got sick and things just didn't go as planned.  I did manage to make a couple of cute things though.  I thought I would share them with you.  Above is a simple plastic apothecary jar that I filled up with "snow" and a couple of Christmas figures.  It turned out adorable!
 I had this tray by 7 Gypsies forever!  I finally decided to use some Project Life cards and die cuts along with corners by Tim Holtz and make a Christmas tray decoration.  I LOVE IT!
 The Snowman, lights and snowflake are all by Darice.

  The holly on the handle is from something that I can't remember, I saved it "just in case" I needed it.
 A friend of mine gave me this exquisite box.  I decided to make a card holder from it.  I attached the ribbon in such a way so that I could remove it if I want to repurpose it into something else.

 I added a foam core pad to the bottom (not shown) that I covered in Christmas paper.  I added the Christmas balls and fir tree filler, and some card backs by Darice.  My cards will stand up nicely in this and look very awesome!
I saw this idea on the net, and decided to try it.  It is a Christmas Card tree.  The idea is that you are supposed to repurpose old Christmas cards.  I usually do other things with them, so I used Christmas card stock.  You can find the pattern here if you want to try it.    I was able to recreate the shapes on my Silhouette so cutting them out was not a problem.

That's all for today.  Have a wonderful week!
