Crazy for Christmas--Decor and More


Well, today is the last day of REVERSE CONFETTI'S CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS series.  You might think we saved the best for last, but for me, it's a hard decision on what my favorites have been so far.  The entire Confetti Crew has done some amazing work these past few days and I can't wait to see what they have all created for today--Christmas Decor and More!

I love the trendy idea of a frame or board of some sort with twine stretched from side to side and little clippies on it to hang things (pictures, quotes, etc.) from.  So after I took my mom to the doctor the other day, we made a quick trip to Michael's to scope out their frame selection as a starting point for my project. 


I came across this amazing wooden Christmas tree with the twine and clips I had envisioned already attached for 60% off, so I snatched it up right away (it came to $9.99), came home, ordered a collage print on my Walgreen's app in case I needed several small pictures, and started the embellishing process...


I knew I wanted to create a couple of mock "gifts", so I started by creating the squares with some AVOCADO cardstock and pieces from the VERY MERRY 6X6 PAPER PAD.  Next came the paper bows from the LAYERED BOW Confetti Cuts.


As I was trying to stick with a very graphic, but rustic theme, I thought it would be fun to add a couple of pure white snowflakes, mixed with some STONE, AVOCADO and BRICK colored accents.  I used the LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts from last year, but kept them very simple.


I had purchased the metal accents and just highlighted them with a snowflake and the one picture of my girls from last Christmas. 


The tag was super fun to make.  I used the long skinny tag die from the IN THE BAG Confetti Cuts and a snippet of paper from VERY MERRY.  I had been looking at some older Christmas paper from Simple Stories that said, "cheer" on it and realized I could do that with my CLINK Confetti Cut and just cut off the "S" at the end! 


Okay, so what do y'all think?  Super fun and "collage-y/trendy", no?  I happen to love it.  The best part?  I can take it all off and start over every year!  Wouldn't my cute little embellishments and photo make a great scrapbook layout?!  Don't be surprised if you see that transformation in the near future!
