Holiday Decor with Shellye

Thank you for joining us again today.

You will not be disappointed because
Shellye McDaniel
has the most incredible project to share with you.


I'm a sucker for honeycomb know the tissue paper type of pretties that you can find to hang from a ceiling or to display as a centerpiece.  I think that they're so whimsical and fun!
  So when I ran across this package of three beautifully sculpted snowflakes from Wal Mart, I just had to put them into the shopping cart :)

 Next, I selected a couple of patterned papers from Christmas Cheer and set out to make two layers of pleated medallions.  For the first layer, I cut two 3" x 12" strips then scored and pleated at 1/2" increments.  For the bottom layer I cut two 4" x 12" strips and pleated the same as before. After both medallions were assembled end-to-end and allowed to dry, I began layering and embellishing!

 I found that the POGO adhesivewas the best for adhering the two medallions to each other.  Next, add fun die-cuts, ribbon and paper flowers to bring your snowflake to life!  I have this cute little fella hanging from one of my small pine trees beside the fireplace.  I look forward to creating a couple of non-Christmas ones so that I can use them throughout the winter months!

Supplies: Christmas Cheer patterned papers; Rejoice Die-Cuts; Tools- POGO Adhesive; Large, Medium and Small Paper Punches
