Christmas Baubles

It's time for some mid challenge inspiration over at the Polkdadoodles Challenge blog, the theme for the DT this fortnight is Not a card but you can enter an Anything Goes project.  I have used papers from the fabulous Festive Christmas CD to create my Christmas Baubles.


They are quite easy to make but rather time consuming, lots of punching circles and folding.


I inked all of the edges and added some pearls to each of the joins.


I would like to enter these ornaments into the following challenges:

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Anything (Christmas) Goes
Crafting By Designs Challenge - Get Ready For Christmas
Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - Magic of Christmas
The Crafty Addicts Challenge 29 - Anything Goes/Option of Christmas Paper

Make sure you pop over to the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Anything Goes challenge, you might like to join the DT and follow the optional Not a card theme. If you need some more inspiration you might like to take a look at our Facebook page.

Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated.

I could see where these would be time consuming but well worth and the time and effort. They are just lovely. Your paper choices all go so nicely with each other and the pearls really add that extra something special. Enjoy your day, Pauline.

Hi, Pauline! Beautiful papers, but more than anything, it is the inked edges that bring out the rich colors, and even more depth! Fun baubles! Hugs, de

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I'm impressed with these. I watched a friend make one once.... lots of punching and folding and bit fiddly to glue all together. They are gorgeous though. I like how you added pearls to the seams. I'm sure that just added to the fiddly-ness of making it.
