Christmas Colors - Paper Playtime

If you are looking for the Exploring Cricut Christmas Card Blog Hop click HERE

Paper Playtime starts a brand new challenge today!! 

For Ch # 90
Theme: Christmas Colors
StartsMonday, Dec 3rd 12:00 am EST
Ends: Thursday, Dec 13th Noon EST
Winner (chosen by random.org) Announced: Thursday, Dec 13th late afternoon

Here is what I came up with:


Do ya love it??!!  I sure do!  I bought a foam wreath base at Michael's and wrapped it in green yarn.  I decided to decorate it with some bears from my Teddy Bear Parade cartridge - I am in love with that cartridge!  I also decided to add some rolled flowers  that I hand cut - they are easy peasy to make!


The super cute Santa!  I think he is adorable.  I cut all the bears at 4.5 inches.  they are a tiny but big, I think next time I might do them a little smaller - maybe 4 inches and add a cut out "Ho, Ho, Ho" or something.


The elf - paper is mostly from Recollections, although there is some SU in there too.  I doodle around with my Sakura jelly roll pen.  I glue gunned everything on the wreath - they should last forever :)


Sorry, this pic is a bit blurry.   I must admit - I think the Rudolph was one of my least favorite on the tri - fold - I feel like the nose is too big or something, but I must admit - he is much cute in real life.


Here is a close up of the rolled flowers.  Simple to make, but I think pretty effective!  On the whole, I am thrilled with how this wreath turned out.  I am considering making another for my sister in law and her family.  I think her kids would like it!
