I thought I'd try my first challenge from hidinginmycraftroom.com. The challenge this week (#12) is to alter something. Laurie's example was Christmasy, so I was inspired to pull out my Christmas stash. Here is the final product:
First, I gathered some supplies. I got 2 CD's and cut 2 holes in the top of each about an inch apart, using my Crop-a-dile. Then I cut 4 different circles from Christmas paper with my Cricut (George and Basic Shapes at 4.75"). I cut holes in the paper to line up with the holes in the CD's.
I chose coordinating ribbon (4 colors), cut each piece about 7", tied it through the two holes at the top and trimmed it.
Next I cut ovals out of scraps with my punches.
I inked the ovals, stamped the sentiment, and adhered them.
I added a circle to the inside to write a message.
The back has a cute image of Santa on it.
Thanks for looking!
