Paint me a white Christmas

My turn at Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxion punches.

I purchased a paintbrush and painted it white. I added fringe and lace at the bottom and the top. The flower is one I made using the circle cutter. I used my tape gun to apply glue on white cardsstock and then laid my material on top of that, then picked the size circle I wanted and cut out the lime green circles and then the white circles. I folded the circles in half and then using a running stick to gather each circle and then sewed together to make the flower. I did the same thing with the white circles and put them behind the green flower, added some lace and little beads for fillers.

This is the best circle cutter I have ever used.

My mom's Christmas ornament

Taking some tutorial classes on quilling (thanks Shari), something I haven't done in a couple of years, and decided to make this for my mom's Christmas tree. I figured all the rest of the family will have their own ornaments she needed one as well. It is going to be so pretty on her small little tree.

Oh Christmas Tree

I want to show you a Christmas tree I made using Kreaxions punch 914. I used a styromfoam tree and painted it white (I didn't want the green showing through). I punched strips of paper and used both the positive and negatives, cut them to the length I wanted, folded the paper over and used a straight pin to put the paper in place. I used 3 different papers but this could easily be made with one sheet of colored paper. I also took some of the brown and light colored paper and wet the paper and rolled it around a wooden dowel I had, once it dried, I cut them in half and added them to the. To finish it off I put a flower on top. I just loved using this punch, gives such a Christmas feel.

Blog Hop--Just Imagine Crafts

If you arrived here from Ginni's blog you are in the right place, if not go back to Just Imagine Crafts

I made this cute little snowman for the blog hop. I used the circle cutter, and let me tell you if you haven't tried using one of these, you need to, it is so awesome and makes a perfect circle cut each time.

I made 2 different size circles using the circle cutter. I hand cut the hat and heart, used a black marker for the mouth. Added some ribbon to finish this off. I used a tea light so that he glows. Remember if you make this to make sure you cut holes in the layers so you can turn your tea light on and off. I hope you give this a try and wouldn't he be cute on your Christmas table??
