Sangria features my favourite colours in deep reds, pinks and purples, perfect for Christmas if you like to steer away from the traditional red and green, and I wanted to create something that wasn't cardmaking or scrapbooking to demonstrate that CTMH products have many uses in all types of papercrafting. After scouring Pinterest for paper Christmas decorations I came up with this, inspired by http://www.homemade-gifts-made-easy.com/make-christmas-ornaments.html
|Christmas Bauble using Sangria Papers and Poppy Twine|
I cut 14 x 3" circles from the Sangria B&T using my Silhouette Cameo, folded them each in half and stacked them on top of one an other . To achieve an even distribution of pattern - stack them alternating pattern side up and solid colour up. Secure some wire around the centre fold line and thread some Poppy twine in at the top to create a hanging loop.
To form the bauble, using liqud glass or glue dots, make a small dot 1/3 from the bottom, fold the facing flaps together and press for a couple of seconds to secure the bond. On the next circle along, stick a glue dot about 1/3 of the way from the top. Continue like this all the way around, alternating high and low liquid glue dots.
After making this bauble I really fell in love with this paper and also created a number of cards and gift tags shown below:
|Sangria Cards & Gift Tags|
Each of these cute cards are 4x4 inch cut from white daisy cardstock. The super cute Giraffe and Hippo cards are made using the new Safari Ballet stampset, coloured in with the watercolour pencils and blended with the blending pen. They images are stamped on white daisy and matted on pomegranate cardstock.
The sentiments used in the Thank You Friend card are from 'A Thousand Thanks'. And the Christmas Card is made using 'Christmas Star'.
The Sangria paper collection and other Sangria products are available from your CTMH consultant so you can create your own projects using these beautiful papers.
