I wanted to make something for my friends Julie and Helen (crafting buddies) because they really are so very kind to me. While keeping my eye on the Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas, I thought what a wonderful idea for a keepsake for them both. This is what I came up with.
A handmade pointsettia, layered over punched fern fronds is snow tipped with Crystal Ice Stickles. A hinged ring, decorated with ribbon scraps is attached to the bottom corner.
A flourish is die cut from an aluminium can (love recycling) and the baubles from scrap papers decorated with tiny pearls, rhinestones and tiny bows.
All of this is finished with a ribbon tie and bow with a stick pin inserted. Then the whole thing is sprayed with a little pearl spritz with a little glue included to sprinkle glitter over.
I am really pleased with the result and the girls love them.
