8th Day of Christmas

I’ll just be getting in before midnight tonight by the seat of my pants LOL.  What a busy day!!!  I decided in my infinite wisdom to go and do some Christmas Shopping in the city today.  It was a beautiful day and I decided to take the bus so I could enjoy it even more and do my bit for the environment.  Didn’t get very far with the Christmas Shopping, but it took hours!!!  I know all the girls out there will know what I mean by that statement.  Giggle.  I hope you have all had more success than me.  Oh well, I guess another trip will definitely be in order now.  It would help of course if I had SOME idea of what I was after *rolling eyes*

Since getting home and having dinner I have been creating some more projects to share with you over the next few days.  I have had to plan ahead this week as the next few work days are going to be VERY long.  So here goes my next installment of the 12 days of Christmas….a decoration for your tree.  I can’t believe it is day 8 already!!!

Paper Christmas Baubles











These are incredibly easy to make and I urge you to give these a go.  I simply cut 6 pieces of double sided DSP to 4 1/2 x 1″ and put them all on top of each other.  I used my crop-a-dile to punch the smaller sized hole in each end.  I inserted a brad into one hole and then threaded my loop of ribbon through the other and secured it in place with a second brad.  It was then a matter of just easing all the piece of paper into place and voila…you have a simple decoration for your tree.  You can alternate the pattern as I did for several of mine, or have them all face the same way to get the same pattern on the outside with the alternate pattern on the inside.  Have fun making some of these for yourself.

Till next time,

Keep Smiling & Stamping!
