Watching this Christmas garland take shape, I've been been thinking how the individual pieces are so versatile. They would make wonderful ornaments for a tree or several hanging from greenery on the mantle would be a nice touch. Or how about using one as a gift packaging embellishment?
My contribution to the garland is an embellished chipboard star. The star is covered in patterned paper from the JBS Christmas collection and slightly distressed with Jenni Bowlin Brown Sugar ink and the Ranger ink blending tool.
I added a small pinwheel created with Core'dinations cardstock that is distressed with gold ink. The pinwheel was then topped with mini chipboard flags run end to end behind a Jenni Bowlin Vintage Christmas chipboard button.
Here's a look at how I added the jewel at the bottom and used the same piece of twine to create a hanger.
I threaded the length of twine through the jewel and then behind the star through two holes punched in the chipboard. The twine is simply knotted at the top.
Here's a list of the supplies for this project available at JBS Mercantile:
Christmas 2011 mini patterned sheet
Vintage Christmas chipboard buttons
Core'dinations scarlet wallpaper cardstock
Ranger ink blending tool
Jenni Bowlin brown sugar ink pad
There are still several pieces to add to our garland, so make sure you stop by again tomorrow to see what's next!
