Holiday Blog Hop

Creating for the holidays not only creates fabulous cards, decorations or party favors it also creates great joy. Crafting for the holidays and participating in the Paper Craft Planet AR Customer Blog Hop  is no exception. While visiting some wonderful blogs I see many banners and garlands and have always wanted to create one for my home. Adela creates the most wonderful templates, so I thought there would be something wonderful to start with. And there was...her Ornaments cutting file are brilliant.
The three different shaped ornaments are a perfect size for decorating and displaying a festive message.
I copied the PDF and cut them out by hand, it was so easy! Next came the decorating! A little ink, some stamps and glitter and you have created a wonderful decoration!
The paper used had wonderful snowflakes printed on it and they are so beautiful when glittered up to make the ornaments shine!
The finished  ornaments were hung one by one on a handmade fringed crepe paper streamer giving the garland a festive look. And your ready to hang to make that special space a little festivity!
