Welcome to our October Creative Inking Blog Hop. Our theme this month is saying thanks creatively. I always struggle with what to give someone to say thank you. Hello-I need to remember I make paper crafts-and a gift made by hand, is really a great way to show a heartfelt thank you. Recently I held an all day getting ready for Christmas event-a home decor piece is always one of the projects we made. Here is this year's project
Grey is so on trend for this Christmas season, as are metallics, including mixing metallics. This project features copper glimmer paper, copper foil sheets and the grey sheet of paper from Joyeux Noel Designer Series Paper has copper stars on it. Noel is from the Festive Farmhouse wood elements-doesn't it just fit in with the colour scheme-yes that is the colour they come (although you can paint them any colour you want)? I can't stop using the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, and it just was the perfect feminine touch to this home decor piece. Reindeer must be on trend too-just check out the plates and napkins at Costco!
Wouldn't this make a delightful thank you gift to a hostess of a party you attend this Christmas season. The only problem-look how perfect it looks on my table-it will be hard to part with this.
