Shabby Christmas Decoration

I've recently been organising my various craft areas & looking through past craft projects I've made.

One which I really enjoyed making was my Mandala, which can be seen here.

I decided to use some of the lovely Cosmo Cricket Christmas papers to make a shabby Christmas flower decoration to hang up.

An old cd was covered in paper, front & back, then edged with a Krylon 18ct gold leafing pen. I punched a hole through the top, using a Crop-a-dile, then added the ribbon.

The flower shapes (using templates from Inspire Me) were cut out, then scrunched & edged in Distress Ink (peeled paint). I drew black lines around the edges to give each flower definition, then the layers were built up using Pinflair Glue Gel.

I added a gold coloured brad to the centre before securing to the cd base.

Being me, the reverse had to look as good as the front, so I used a Cosmo Cricket chipboard greeting to secure the ribbon, using glue gel.

I cut freehand the holly leaves & made the berries using a small circle punch. Edges were inked as before.
