One for Creative Cottage. This one is using the fab freebie kit on their challenge blog # is 'to make card and matching gift', super, super kit, love it for instant cards...and gifts! Looking around blogland I could see these decorative tree hangers on some very talented blogs, thought about having a go by printing out both sides of paper to make my own version with 5cm squares (details at bottom of this post), just cut out a round scallop for these little components to sit on at 12 o'clock, 3,6 and then at 9. As i had 8, it made it really easy to slot the last four in place and there we have a giant snowflake. Used the button which comes in kit for centre and gemmed it up. Sequins to cover up my messy glue!

The back...stamped with sentiment and snowflake from Sweet n Sassy stamps Snowflake set, threaded with yummy checked ribbon from Crafty Ribbons (super service by the way).

Matching card too! Made from the same kit.

This is how I made my components with 5cm squares, easy!

Challenges entered are 9 others, namely, Fab n Funky 'Christmas is for children', they had a birthday celebration last week and I was one of the winners so a big thanks, Paperplay is Holiday tag (I think my snowflake could be used as a tag for a large present???), OSAAT and Christmas Stampin 'Anything Goes', Scrappy Frogs Holiday Decoration, Charisma 'gift', Allsorts 'last minute christmas', Ellephantastic Christmas/winter and last but not least Kaboodle Doodle 'clean & simple'...not followed any complicated sketch, just found my way round the card with the kits pieces! Thanks for the visits, they're so appreciated and I hope you continue to like what you see here, bye for now.
