on this, the first day of August 2012!
My birthday is in 18 days and is usually right around
the time that school starts...and so begins the busy-time-of-year!
Labor Day, football games, after-school practices, Halloween,
Octoberfest, Election Day, Thanksgiving, Columbus Day...so many
in-between days while we wait for the Christmas Season to begin.
I said all of that to say this: Christmas will be here before we know it LOL
Now, don't panic...you still have 145 days :)
But what better way to spend some of those in-between days
than crafting up some fun and cool Holiday crafts?
The Monthly Challenge is up at the
and it's really pretty super easy (see below)
Don't you love pilfering through the $1 bins?
I found this darling red splattered tin at Target a couple of years
ago and knew it would be even cuter dressed up!
The large Santa die-cut, the three patterned papers (for the flowers),
the canvas sticker and the chipboard sticker are all from the new
CHRISTMAS CHEER COLLECTION
I used three different sizes of the I-Top Punches to create the
layered flowers that I made to decorate the rim of the tin.
(16mm, 24mm and 32mm)
In attaching the flowers to the tin, I used the very handy-dandy
I-Bond Hot Glue Tool by Imaginisce...perfect for these types of crafts!
