DIY Christmas KrEative Design Team Project

Good Morning!
I hope you all were able to enjoy that beautiful day that we had yesterday...
I wanted to share my Kreative Design Team projects for this month with
you all. I really enjoyed this line and had a lot of fun with it.
The products that I used are:
Simple Stories - DIY Christmas Collection - Card Layers
DIY Christmas Collection - Card Layers
Simple Stories - DIY Christmas Collection - A2 Card Fronts
DIY Christmas Collection - A2 Card Fronts
Simple Stories - DIY Christmas Collection - 6 x 6 Paper Pad
DIY Christmas Collection - 12 x 12 Paper Collection
This collection has a lot of possibilities depending on your style.
I made several tags, holiday cards and home décor pieces out of this.
Without further delay here are my creations.
First up is a set of mittens that I cut out with the cricut machine.
I then did a blanket stitch around the edges to hold them together.
I added a pipe cleaner to hang them by and decorated them with
some of the fun sayings. I punched a few snowflakes and added buttons.
Filled them with a candy cane and sprig of Christmas greenery.
I can't wait to hang these by my mantle.
 Some close-ups of the embellishing on them.

Here are the tags I created.
I just used some plain manila tags that I had here, but you could use
any cardstock and cut out any size or style of tag you want.
The only thing I added was some twine and rhinestones to glitz them up a bit.

One of my Favorite things I made was this adorable little tea light holder.
The front of it says "Let It Snow" and the sides have snowflakes on them.
I of course added some rhinestones to help with the sparkle effect.

Here are the cards that I made.

This is the inside to the card above.

They all have insides to them I have only shown a few of them here
because of space, but stop by the store and see them in person...
these pictures don't really do them justice.
And last is the other home décor piece that I mdae from the 12 x 12 paper
collection. I used the paper and rolled them around a dowel so they were all the same size
and then hot glued them onto the star I cut from the cricut machine.
I added a star in the middle to finish it off and of course some
sparkle to the project with stickles glitter.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and will have time to stop by the store and see of the
fun things I made from the collection.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
