Welcome to the Christmas Cheer Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Christmas Cheer Blog Hop!
If your just starting out on the hop make sure you go back and start on Paulas blog More than Favors.
I want to Thank Paula and Momo for asking to be part of this hop...Such an Honor. I truly love those gals!
So the theme of this hop is CHRISTMAS which is ONE day away! Not that you needed reminding.
My project today is a cute and easy paper and button tree! Along with a cute,darling,ornament that my dear sweet  friend Sarah made me.

So all that is needed is a styrofoam cone, pins or sticky tape, glue dots, buttons, a pencil, and lots of 1x3 inch strips. I inked the edges to give it more of a rustic look. And rolled the ends of the paper on a pencil to get the ends to flip out. Over all, I'm very happy with the outcome.

Think about how cute this would look with the strips embossed with a cuttlebug, or maybe stamped with your favorite sentiment.

Im also putting up a really sweet card made with Scrappy Moms new stamp set Designers Choice. Be sure to stop by there blog as there having a real fun contest.


Todays blog candy is Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face Parts and More.
To Qualify all you need to do is leave a comment, become a follower, and leave a way for me to reach you if you win. Random.Org will choose the winner on Monday.
Happy Holidays Friends.
Meriah

Up next is my super great friend, Sarah at PinkCricut, Im sure your just gonna love her project.


Be sure to check out all the fab ladies projects on the hop. Here is the list. Happy Hopping.
