JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #6



Wow can you believe it is Wednesday already!!!  Time seems to be zipping by but in true Wednesday fashion I am back to share a project for JustRite Stampers newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #6!   Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps!  This week, it’s most of the Copic design team and Certification instructors!  So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!




For my project this week I took a plain paper bag:  added some paper, glitter, ribbon and a combination of die templates to take my little snowman & snowflake sentiment to center stage. Here is what you will need to complete this project:

{Supplies}

Ribbon: American Crafts
Post-it Craft Paper Fully Adhesive
Glitter: Clearsnap
Glitter Stickers: K&Company
Paper: Doodlebug Designs
Other: Craft paper lunch bags



Ready to see what the other designers have created...well look no further because I have the whole group listed for you here:


Q&A

: Thanks for that great question Debbie.  I actually learned this technique at CHA when Cathy Chlebana made a snowflake pin as a make-'n-take at the Spellbinders Booth.  Cut a piece of Post-it Craft paper to match the size of your die template. Run it through your die cutting machine so that you have your desired shape.  For my sample I first cut the Crown Circle die and then I positioned a circle die template and cut again to make the crown circle frame.  Next you peel the backing off of the Post-it adhesive paper and dip the entire cut shape in a bowl of shallow glitter.  You will have a perfect glitter embellishment without uneven spaces and globs of glue.  It is one of my favorite techniques which you will see quite a bit of on my blog - keep watching this space :)


Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to stop by.  Have a fabulous Wednesday :)
