Spreading Holiday Cheer!
I'm in the thick of the holiday season and I am listening to way too much Carpenter's Christmas on Pandora but with everything else going on, I've made a point this season to actually follow through on some creative projects.
The first of my projects was done with a little help from the Paper Source. I actually bought this kit last year and never had the chance to get to it but alas, I committed to making it this year!
The kit had directions that were very easy to follow and it included several different holiday-esque decorative papers to use. The paper rosettes are made by folding the paper in a zig-zag formation, tying them with cord at the center and then taping the opposite ends to each other to form the circle. I then used a wreath shaped piece of cardboard (included in the kit) to mount the pieces together. I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the back cardboard so that it would hang nicely on my front door. To top it off I used the green banners that were provided and added some of my own hand-lettering to this creation. (They come pre-made but I flipped my over and wrote my own greeting.)
It's a nice warm welcome into our apartment on these cold winter days!
