Wrap It Up Design Team Blog Hop

Christmas is right around the corner! 
Hard to believe right?
Well let’s wrap up the holiday season. 
With some fabulous projects from the designers here at 
My Life in Arts’ n Crafts’

 Be Sure to Check out the Brand New Challenge opening today.
For a Super Great giveaway.
This is going to be a regular thing every hop we will have a challenge to go along with the hop theme. 

I made some simple ornaments using the new platinum Shimmer twine.
I used a Polaroid frame “polaroid photo frame” by SnapDragon Snippets LLC available in the silhouette store.

I cut out 5 in the size they default to. Then I took one and ungrouped the inner square to create the back for my little ornament.
I layered up the 5 frames on top of my photo. Then attached the back.
I used the platinum shimmer, to create the hanger part, which I used my crop-i-dial to make two holes in the corners. Then create just a simple circle loop for the hanger.
I made two tiny bows and used scotch quick dry to attach them.
I used a sequin heart from Heidi Swapp and on the back I wrote my mommy and me, November 2012.
Simple and easy. Great gift for moms and grandmas, and super simple mass produce. If you wanted you could laminate these or even add a piece of clear acetate to protect your photo.

I have a fabulous giveaway for you today,
5 action Wobbles.
Red, Green, and White Jute!
Maraschino, Cappuccino and Peapod Twine.

 Merry Christmas!!! Or Happy Holidays!!
