MCT 12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 5!

Welcome to My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!  Don't you just love what everyone has been making!!!  We are showcasing projects that are quick and easy or some with more details. We are all SO BUSY these days, so hopefully you can pick up some ideas for this holiday season. You should have arrived here from Linsey's Blog! If not please head over to Emma's for the start! You will want to make sure that you leave a comment for everyone so that you will eligible for the DAILY GIVEAWAYS! That's right DAILY!!!

While on a quick shopping trip with Emma and Katie last month, I finally found this paper mache' Christmas Tree box!  I had been looking for one for awhile, so I could make this!  I plan on filling it with candy!  :)

I cut small strips of paper and stamped "home sewn..." from Home Sewn set.  Then masked off "merry" from All Around Christmas set, and stamped "Christmas"

Once everything is stamped, then add the glitter to the edges.


recipe:
paper: Teresa Collins ~ Christmas Home paper pack
glitter, mini spools, twine, silver cord, Tim Holtz ink
