Spellbinders & Friends Holiday Hoppin' Event





Welcome to the first day of the Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Holiday Hoppin’ Blog Hop!  Spellbinders, along with Spellbinders Cross Promotional Partners are showcasing their newest products just in time for your Holiday crafting and gift giving.  


Lots of creative ideas are in store, as well as prizes galore!  


Each participating company has generously donated towards the prize package listed on the Spellbinders Blog.  A total of two identical prize packages, one for each day, November 18 and 19 will be given away!  To enter, just leave a comment on a participating blog!  Comments in the first 48 hours of the post are eligible.  One commenter each day will be randomly selected as the winner.  Winners will be announced on November 22, on the Spellbinders Blog!




For this project I used my Spellbinders Grand Labels One to frame the image of my stamped Santa.  I had seen a paper poinsettia wreath on the Martha Stewart website and was inspired to make my own interpretation thereof using Spellbinders die templates, cardstock, patterned paper, glitter and stamps.  Here is a list of supplies you will need:


{Supplies}

Paper: The Robin's Nest: Glittered Clover Border, Red Lion
Speciality Paper: 3M Post-it Craft Full Adhesive
Markers: Copic
Other: styrofoam wreath, ribbon, glitter berries


{How To}
Below you will find my first attempt at a video blog tutorial :)  In this video you will see a basic introduction to the Grand Calibur, Grand Labels One and Labels One die templates and how to make a glittered frame like the one on my wreath:




I created the inside glittered petals of the Poinsettia flowers the same way I made the frame. Simply cut each center flower out using the Poinsettia die template and Post-it Craft Paper.  Peel off backing and dip in glitter.

{Blog Hop}


*Kazan Clark*

Simply leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the Spellbinders Holiday Hoppin




One winner will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs participating today.  Comments made in the first 48 hours of this post will be eligible to win.  Winner’s names will be published on the Spellbinders Blog on November 22, and they will have 48 hours to reply to Spellbinders to claim the prizes.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today - I hope you enjoyed my project and video (eeeak).  Be sure to see all of tomorrow’s Holiday Hoppin’ blogs for inspiring projects and another chance to win!
Hugs
Kazan
