Christmas Craft Week 3

A month or so ago I came across a darling project from Leslie Ashe. I decided I must give it a try. Usually I'm one that sees fun ideas but rarely make them. Since we are sharing a Christmas project each Wednesday from now until Christmas to help inspire you, it was the perfect excuse for me to give this a try. So I pulled out last years Echo Park line and got to work. The trick is to figure out the order of your paper and then once you have the length figured out, cut it at that length and the width is 2". Roll up your paper gluing it to seal the paper tube closed and once you have it all laid out the way you want just glue them down to the canvas. I created a dimensional star and popdotted it for the top and then added buttons and brads for my ornaments. I decided I wanted to add a frame using one of my border punches. So if you're like me and see crafts you like but rarely make, give this a try. If you create a project(not a layout or card) using rolled paper your name will go into the monthly draw.
