Holiday Cheer!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.  I created this wall hanging to bring a little vintage holiday cheer into my home this season:

I used 4 6×6″ pieces of chipboard for the base.  I used a sheet of paper from the family fun kit that looks like lined paper to cover the chipboard pieces.  Next, I used platinum stickles on the edges of each chipboard panel.  I punched holes in the corners of each chipboard piece and attached the panels together with candy cane striped pipe cleaners.  All embellishments are from a VSM Vintage Christmas Kit (these kits are packed with true vintage goodies, contents may vary).  I used the aqua blue foil from the Dimestore Vogue paper kit to make the scalloped border at the bottom and the rosettes.  This was so fun, and really relaxing to create in the middle of all the crazy holiday stress.

Next I created a gift bag for a hostess gift using a brown paper lunch bag as a template:

Take apart a brown paper bag and use it as your template.  Use the red foil paper from the VSM party games kit and cut a rectangle the same dimensions as your paper bag.  Following the fold lines on the paper bag, measure and score your foil.  Fold it up, glue it together at the seams and embellish.  I used embellishments from a VSM vintage Christmas kit, and a paper doll from the family fun kit.

Have a Merry Vintage Christmas Everyone!
