Sparkly Christmas Bells!

Ohhhhhh this card was fun to make! When I saw the inspiration photo at FUSION, I'd already been thinking about my Merry Monday card for a few days, and I had nothing. I wanted to use bells in a unique way. I think I did it!


Supplies: Memory Box leaf die; American Crafts silver card stock; silver glitter paper from Dollarama; Silver paint pen; ribbon and bells from stash


I lightly traced a circle onto the paper so I had an idea of where to place the leaves. Using thick card stock made it easy to shape the leaf fronds to curve into a wreath shape. I sewed each bell on, and sewed the bow & silver bells on for the final touch. I even impressed my hubby with this one, which is a tough crowd!


xoxo,
Jessi
