Noel Decoration

Happy New Years everyone! I wanted to share something with you that I made this holiday season. It is sitting on a shelf in my kitchen. I made this using all Stampin' Up! materials, except for the coasters. These are 4 inch coasters that you can get at any restaurant that has them, or there are places online to purchase them also. For this project I used 5 coasters and covered them all with my Wintergreen Designer Paper. They are very easy to cover, using the Stampin' Up! glue-sticks and sanding blocks. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the sides, and connected them with my ribbon. The letters were stamped using my Big Deal Alphabet Stamp Set and then clear embossed. The star that is on the left panel is chipboard from the On Board Accents kit. All I did was silver embossing on it, punched a hole in the center with my Crop-A-Dile and attached a rhinestone brad! Voila! It was simple and easy, and makes a great holiday decoration! There's a lot of sparkle to it in real life! I'm thinking of decorating the backside of it as well for maybe Valentine's or Easter. I'll have to think about this for a while!
Speaking of Valentine's Day, Stampin' Up! has a wonderful new special out for the month of January called the Valentine's Bundle. You can make a whole lot of nice Valentine's Day treats with this special, it even includes the cellophane bags and ribbon, and a new stamp set!! Check out the special here, and let me know if this is something you would like!
I have a few ideas for classes in January, such as a calendar class, our 6x6 Scrapbook class, and a Valentin'es making class using the new special bundle. Be on the look out for more posts and emails about these!
Happy New Years, and Happy Stamping to you all!
