This card was fun to make. I had a Frugal Finds assignment on Practical Scrappers to find a way to use Christmas decor in a different way.
At first I was thinking of using an ornament, or maybe garland on a layout. However, this seemed to obvious to me. For some reason I kept going back to wanting to do something with ornament hooks.
This is what I came up with...
I used gold ornament hooks, which I bent, and then hooked them together to form a chain.
These were not the easiest things to adhere to the card stock. I tried a couple of different glues that ended up making my fingers sticky but did not keep the hangers on the paper. So, I finally settled on sewing them on. Each hook has a stitch of gold thread holding it in place.
The green circles are card stock that I punched into circles, embossed with my Cuttlebug, and then distressed with green ink from Close to My Heart.
is made from preprinted chipboard letters from K&Company and finished off with a baker's twine bow.
