Christmas Decorations!

Each year I make a Christmas decoration / tag for my very special family and friends.  I've been making them for the past 11 years!
This year I discovered the joy of a cuttlebug (I know..... I'm a little behind the times) but I have certainly made up for lost time using it for all my Christmas decorating!

The tags are all made using the Tim Hotlz Alterations Die-  Rosettes.  It cuts 2 different sized rosettes at once!  You will need to purchase the longer 6x13" A plate and B plates to use the die in your cuttlebug.

You could make these in any colour combination to match your Christmas theme.  My papers were Gold, Burgundy and white so I used those colours.  

I was even able to use them for my table settings, making napkin rings (the scalloped border on the napkin rings is the die cut rosette that hasn't been accordion folded!!)   And as you can see below, I decorated a candle using the two rosette sizes together.

And the cute little Christmas boot below is one I made during a Christmas Copics class run by the amazing talented Sue Kohler at Scraphaven.    We were able to make the boot using whatever colours we liked!

I hope that you all had a truly wonderful Christmas celebrating the birth of our Saviour!!

I was wondering what you would do this year, and these are just awesome!!! Might have to come and visit and 'play' with your die cuts.
