Number Two: The Garland
Two circle punches are needed for this project - one about an inch in diameter and the other about an inch and a half. This is easy! Just punch a big circle and then a smaller circle inside of that. The centers will become the alternating circle on the garland as shown. You will need little jewelry rings to attach the circles together.Number Three: The Stars
Number Four: The Word Swags
These are the fun ones! Just think of a festive word such as J-O-Y, R-E-J-O-I-C-E, N-O-E-L and use cards to make them for a swag on a fireplace mantel, over a mirror or in a window. Letter stickers form the words. Punch holes in the top of the cards and thread ribbon through the holes. Hang!This one is "Rejoice"...sorry it is a bit difficult to see.
Here is the word "Noel." Each letter is on a card that is about 4 inches in diameter. Vintage sheet music has been photocopied and is in the background of the letter.
So, save those cards! I'm guessing my decorating the City Nest used up around 100 cards. Now what to do with those coming in this year...hmm. I still have lots left from previous years. Being a saver has its challenges.
