Christmas Garland #13 by Doris Sander

Hello! Doris here! I have to tell you that I had so much fun creating this ornament that I had to make a layout using the same technique! It's really been so exciting seeing what everyone else comes up with for the Christmas Garlad. If you've missed any, you can find them all HERE. And stay tuned as we still have a couple more ornaments to share next week, then the finished product!

To start out, cut a 4x6 piece of carstock and choose seven of your favorite patterned papers (I ended up not using the black piece you see here). Trim the patterned paper into 1x1 inch squares and begin adhering them to the cardstock. Once the cardstock is completely filled, sew lines down each column and across each row in a grid pattern (optional). Adhere the 4x6 sheet directly to the top of your large chipboard heart then trim off the edges. Use an emory board to sand the edges smooth.

Adhere two of the small chipboard flag banner pieces as shown, then cover the fronts with Terrifically Tacky Tape (or glue). First place your chipboard heart in the center, then apply glitter to the remaining portions of the banner pieces.

Staple a length of seam binding tape to the heart and then tie it in a double bow. Sew some charms to the center of the bow.

Punch holes in the top of the heart to string it up. Done! So cute!

And now create a fun layout using the same technique!

These photos are from back in 2007. I had to photograph my neice's wedding. Gabriel was the ringbearer and somewhat traumatized by having to perform his duties with the assistance of his uncle instead of his mommy. Poor little boo.

Pin It!
