Well now, yesterday was a very productive day, but as things go, it got a wee bit crazy in the Boom-room.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…la..la..la..la..Laaaaaaaa 😀
You know it’s getting crazy when: you run out clean space in the craftroom and take over the bathroom counter too (note to self: buy house with big bathroom) 😀
I finally managed to wrap up a few gifts and had a whole lot of fun doing it. There’s just a ton of creative and pretty ideas on Pinterest, so I started a board called Wrap It. I like when a special gift for a friend can be enjoyed even before they open it. Bonus, it’s also a great way to use up little bits of this and that from other projects.
I figure, why use a bow when a little birdie will do just fine. The Cavallini Christmas paper I chose was way too cute to cover up with ribbons, so I incorporated a string of pearls instead. I always admire the whole Cavallini collection ! Hey, do you remember my crafting turn-table? I used their gorgeous, vintage looking, Cavallini World Map for that project.
The little nest is made of aqua tinsel garland (of course). I glued it onto a circle cut from card stock. The riot of colour on the Cavallini paper was so irresistible, I decided to rock the pink right along with them. I used my Big Shot Die Cutter and Memory Box Dies for the ornament tag. They have the most fabulous Holiday collection, click the link to see more.
Because it’s so chilly here, I thought she’d look extra cute with rosie cheeks. I got out my new watercolour pencils and voila! Why would you add pink rhinestones to a glittery aqua nest? I say, “why not?” Boom! An Aqua Birdie Bow to charm the feathers off your fine favourite friend.
Are you getting things wrapped up yet?
