First I covered each house with patterned paper and stitched around the edges with my sewing machine.
The roofs are a combination or stickers and patterned papers. On the edge of each roof, I use a thin line of glue and some mica snow.
On the background, I splattered some blue mist, and then added my glittery snowflakes. I cut my snowflakes with my Cricut, and then ran them through the Xyron right side DOWN, so that that side would be sticky. Then I sprinkled some loose glitter on the sticky side and glued them on the background.
I did the same with some small bits of white cardstock for the windows, too.
To decorate the outside of the frame, I simply wrapped a bit of twine, and used some more glittery snowflakes with a little banner piece...
My 3 1/2 yo daughter was watching me make stickers and use glitter (every 3 1/2 yo daily dream!) so of course I had to let her try. I cut out some extra shapes from white cardstock, ran them through the Xyron, and then let her go to town on decorating them with glitter! :) Yes, there is glitter everywhere, now, but it was worth it!
Thank you Xyron for sponsoring us this month!
