Papertrey December Blog Hop

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Papertrey's monthly blog hop is tonight and the challenge for December was to use some holiday decorations to inspire a project. I decided to create a framed piece of holiday art.

I love this little Santa ornament that I got last year. It's just fun and I love the classic colors. He's my inspiration piece ...I made a little ribbon tree to fit a 5 x 7 frame I picked up a craft store. I started with a New Leaf card stock triangle and roughed the edges up some. Then I cut varied lengths of New Leaf grosgrain and tied them in knots to use for the tree. I adhered the ribbon using some Zip Dry paper glue and added buttons from the Holiday Mix collection in Spring Moss (kind of yellowish), Pure Poppy and White using foam tape. To finish it off, I filled the space between the ribbons and the holes of the buttons with Star Dust Stickles. This is so cute! And I will definitely make some of these for gifts next year. The red paper in the background is from the Holiday Vintage Prints patterned paper collection.

Here's a closer view of my tree ... Thanks for stopping by to check out my project!

Supplies Used (all PTI unless noted):
Paper: Holiday Vintage Prints, New Leaf
Accessories: New Leaf grosgrain, Dark Chocolate grosgrain, Holiday Mix buttons (Spring Moss, Pure Poppy, White); Ranger Stickles (in Stardust) and foam tape
