A Funky Christmas decoration

I received my Funky Hand cd yesterday and downloaded one of the Christmas Word books I bought with the £20.00 voucher I received for winning November's Challenge on the Get Funky blog.
I couldn't resist printing out some of my favourite papers and having a play.

The Get Funky Challenge this month set by the very talented Kath is to make a Christmas decoration. I took inspiration from a decoration made by Elizabeth from Elzybells which she showcased on her blog yesterday and decided to use printed papers instead or ribbon to put the decoration together.

I printed one sheet of the gorgeous spotty paper and then fed it back through the printer so it was printed on both sides. I then cut the paper into strips measuring 10.5 cm x 1.5cm. I shaped each strip into a curve sticking the ends together with strong glue.
I cut 2 large Nesties circles from green printed card and stuck the paper ribbons evenly around the 1st circle. A ribbon was added for hanging and the second circle was then stuck on the back to hide the raw edges.
I cut more circles from printed papers and matted and layered them on the front of the decoration finished with a Stampendous sentiment. I added gems to finish off to give a bit of sparkle.

I made this lat night and took photos early this morning, I couldn't resist sharing a photo of my cat Patch looking a bit moody at being woken up too early :-)
I will be back later with details of the first Easy Craft Projects Challenge.

  8. This looks really effective but sounds easy to make - just my strips always end up wonky even though I've measured them!! Thanks for entering the Get Funky! Challenge – hope you can join us again next month! Get Funky!
