Holly Jolly – Anything but a Card

Hello and welcome.

 

This week at Holly Jolly we are creating Christmas projects which are Anything but a Card.

 

We have two sponsor’s too – Di’s Digi’s & Digi Stamps 4 Joy for our challenge so we would love you to join us!

 

Now my project, well I don’t know about you but when I have to think about creating Anything but a Card it can be hard to just narrow it down to one thing.

 

So I went searching through my old links and pinterest boards and found a project that I have wanted to try but haven’t had time.

 

The project I found at  Stempleinmaleins, click here to view and it is Christmas Cutlery holders.

 

This is a great quick project to use some of your Christmas paper stash and you could even personalise them.

 

Here is my project with Cutlery

And without Cutlery

Just image the Christmas table all decked out with these and other other decorations – very special!

 

I have used the Memory Box die Flowering Christmas, Martha Stewart Winter Snow Punch and the Scallop Border Punch.  Plus there is of course some bling and retired Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon.  Unfortunately I cannot remember the DSP but the cardstock is Cherry Cobbler.

 

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:

Have a wonderful week.
