Holiday Projects

I finished up a couple holiday projects this weekend!
I made this fun holiday garland. Jessica Sprague offered a free Holiday Memories this week. I used my cricut to cut out the stars, circles and scallops. Jessica provided the templates for the dates and the photo circles. I picked out a bunch of Christmas memories and dropped them into the template, printed the photo circles, punched them out and adhered them to the scallops. There are photos on both sides. I need to finish the class and make the box to store my garland in. So fun!
I love the projects on the DCWV blog! Erin posted this cute project a couple weeks ago and I knew I had to do it! I used a DCWV stack from last year and adhered my rolls to a canvas I got at Joann's (that I painted and modge podged). I cut the bird out with my cricut. And I colored my own twill ribbon by spraying plain ribbon with water and then running Distress Ink along the ribbon until I was happy with the color. This project is a nice addition to my mantel this year.
