the holly and the stickles

this is one of the little projects I wanted started and finished I used the cricut christmas cheer cartridge and cut two different sizes of holly and berries and then creased the holly . Then decided to add stickles to random edges of the leaves,this was done when I should have been asleep so these layed at my bedside overnight to dry. Then I just threw everything in a box and leaves were layered up at random on to the circle I had covered,starting from the outer edge working in, I used silicone glue to give it a 3D dimension,but you could achieve this using different sizes of foam pads or depth of glue. Then the berries got a covering of candy cane red stickles and again these were just applied at random and the ribbon finished it off

TIP: punch your hole for hanging before you start layering up I did it with the cropadile and used an eylet and ran the chiffon ribbon through for hanging so much easier than doing it afterwards!!!

I`m still wondering if to give this a coat of modge podge or other sealer..... Well I have finished another little thing I was giving a test run

and must say it worked so simple and fast that I just went with the flow and happy how this one turned out also, will show later and well thats 2 down and how many to go!! trouble is the faster I clear the more I think to try....... I have not been to good last few days some Virus going about decided to hit me,but today I feel a little better

Well we are promised some of the white stuff this weekend and when I was out tonight with my DS ,we saw some of the white stuff they promised, it is so chilly and tomorrow I have no plans at going out at all
