The Paper Players #54 - Christmas in July

Hi Everyone!

This week at The Paper Players Jaydee has a theme challenge for you all -

In Australia, Christmas is in the middle of summer and is usually very hot! It was a really nice change to be making a Christmas project in cooler weather LOL

For something different, I thought I'd make a 3D project instead of a card this week-

Wouldn't it be lovely to receive a beautifully wrapped gift with this as the gift tag? It could come straight off the gift and onto the tree :)

I made another version of this last Christmas. You can see my original post here and find the instructions to make the ornament here.

We hope that you will join the The Paper Players this week! Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations!

Sandra, this is such a fabulously creative idea! I would love to hang this beauty on my tree. The bling accents and glittered edges would stand out beautifully in the tree lights, too. Very pretty! Hugs! :)

Wowzers, Sandra this is amazing! I love the clean lines of it but all the detail you've added like the dusted edges makes it sooo elegant and beautiful! What a fabulous holiday project! Thanks for sharing the directions too. :-)
