20 days of paper projects – day 20

Happy Halloween! And of course I have a treat for you, the only tricks here are crafty ones.

Today is Day 20 and our final day of our 20 day series of projects using patterned paper (also known as Designer Series Paper or DSP for short). Today we’re using up scraps to create a Christmas wreath ornament.

Don’t forget that today is the last day to get hold of our exclusive Merry Patterns set for free. It’s also the last day to take advantage of our Buy Three, Get One Free promotion on DSP. Grab ’em while you can!

This video is oldie but goodie and while the decoration is slightly different for today’s version the basic instructions for the wreath remain the same.

Christmas Around the World DSP was used to make the wreath. Real Red Solid Ribbon was poked through a hole in the top of the wreath and knotted to create a hanger. The same ribbon was tied in a bow and added to the ornament with a Mini Glue Dot. Using Real Red ink, a sentiment from Merry Patterns was stamped onto a narrow strip of Whisper White card, the ends were flagged, the sentiment curled over a bone folder and popped up on the ornament with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by.

We have some exciting changes lined up for this year. We’ve already announced a change to our face to face classes. There will also be new online classes heading your way, more videos (I hadn’t realised how long it was since our last ones Embarassed) and a new look to our website and newsletter.

Speaking of which, are you signed up yet for our free newsletter?

As well as news about all our classes, the latest offers from both SU! and Sara’s Crafting and Stamping Studio, you’ll also get an exclusive project and hints, tips or techniques with every edition. It’s emailed out twice a month, usually on the 2nd of the month and around mid month. However as the SU! offer won’t launch until the 3rd January, it’s going out a day late this month and so you still have time to sign up. Just complete the signup box top right where it says Sign Up For My Newsletter.

PS. Do you like the new year banner? I’ve been meaning to make one of these for ages but had such involved plans for the layers and such, that I never got around to it. I kept this one simple and it took me around an hour yesterday. Now I’d love to make some fancier ones but if keeping it simple gets it done, then that’s what I’ll go for in future Smile
