Can you tell the design team had a great time, with so many ideas to inspire your Christmas gift giving??
Kristi and I have had a great deal of fun playing around with a packet of Imaginisce's charming Cottage Christmas collection paper, and coordinated Rub-Ons, Ribbons, Stamps, and Accessories! In addition they also provided the cool I-Rock hot fix tool and gems. We hope you will enjoy the whole array of projects that we came up with, showcasing the Cottage Christmas Collection!
Christmas ornaments you can make with your kids!
Repurposing at it’s finest, using a MAN’S BELT
Here, we have a long man's belt, repurposed into a great Christmas Card display holder! We painted clothes pins with matching paint, and created little medallions from the Rubber Stamps to decorate each pin, then attached each to the belt with Beacon's 3-in-1 Glue! Don't you love the cards Kristi made?
Nothing says welcome at the front door like a wreath!
Okay, what do you get when you add one styrofoam wreath, 500 coffee filters, 25 candies, and one sheet of Imaginisce Cottage Christmas Cardstock??? This awesome Christmas Countdown Wreath, sure to delight kids of all ages!!!
Oh, yes! It was so much fun to put together, and you will be able to get the instructions on Betty's blog!
A sweet desk calendar

Say it in style this Christmas with an amazing presentation!
And last, but certainly not least .... Sometimes a tiny treasure is a big deal, so we've used a very small tin, and covered it with a scrap of striped paper, and added a matching bow. The top is decorated with a rub-on, and four I-Rock pearls in the corners.
