My friend (and fellow demo) Donna came over today for a little visit, and brought with her the cutest little thing…immediately I wanted to make one, and needed to know how! I know there are a lot of different versions of this little beauty out there on SCS, but the one I saw online was by Sharon Johnson (wowee what a talent she is!!). Donna made hers differently too, I think it's all in what you like and how much "bling" you want to add.
What a darling little treat to give to a holiday party hostess to place on their mantle, chair rail (where mine is), etc. I will warn you though, this is not one of those easy peasy projects that you just whip up in a couple of minutes…I think I made mine from roughly 4-6 pm today. Yes it would be waaaayyyy easier the 2nd time around, because you'd have a template for the papers, but I still wouldn't wait until a half hour before a party to create this for a gift! Today I was happy to spend my time stamping while it was raining and windy outside, plus the more I stamp the quicker the time goes by to find out what's on that Holiday Extravaganza sale tomorrow!
