Remember i told you in my last post that ideas came running as soon as i went to bed after making christmas card no.1? well, this was one of them. this one's a clever one. do not, and let me say this again, DO NOT throw away those tiny bits of ribbons and papers. i tend to keep scraps of papers, even to the tiny-est bit of them, just in case i can reuse them. when you tie a bow, and you cut out the ends to give it a little bit of an nice edge, well, i tend to keep that bit too, just in case it might be useful for later use.
It certainly was useful in this case. i was trying out a few ways on how to make use of them, and this was what i can come up with. i arranged them to a shape of a christmas tree (please tell me it looks like one). Added a sequine star on top and voila! hopefully the christmas colours adds to the theme.
Call me a cheapsket, but hey, it works for me! turned out nice dont you think so? if you have extra time or perhaps extra hands, add in a little bit more effort to tie those papers with a thin, extra super duper thin ribbons or a thick thread (those cross stitch ones -what do you call them?) and turn them into parcels and presents!
