Let It Snow, Let It Snow Banner


Since things were so busy before the holidays and I had so many plans for the new year, I decided to make my holiday banner a winter banner, so I could leave it up on my tree all season. Of course, I still have the holiday stuff up, so this photo shows the banner with all of it’s holiday attire, but I assure you, the ornaments and Christmas cards will soon be packed away…

Then, I embellished with silver glitter paper using dies from Impression Obsession and a deer punch. I used the Sizzix Precision Base Plate to get the thin metal dies to cut through the glitter paper.


Then I added ribbon and buttons and strung it up with a bit of twine … since the tree is in my hallway where the lighting is poor, the photos on the tree never look great, but you get the idea!

Deer Ornament


Here is a super easy ornament that will add plenty of sparkle to your tree!

I purchased an extra-large, clear, plastic ornament. This one is probably 2-3 times the size of a typical bulb.

I filled this inside with some gift-bag filler.

Then I added Merry Christmas and reindeer Peel-Off stickers from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The deer prance all the way around!

I love it.

Since I chose not to put up a tree this year, I hung it on my wooden tree for now …
