Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays

This is what my scoring board looked like a while ago - could hardly see the white board due to the red and white creations on top of it - Scandinavian colors - Danish colors.

Getting them organized and counted.

Looks familiar? Inspiration is here, though smaller size this time around.

A lot of cutting and gluing - punching with a snowflake punch - bakers twine and alternative use of red gift wrapping paper on simple white cardboard paper. I have had the red gift wrapping paper for almost 10 years and used it to the very last scrap on this project - just wish that I could get something similar again as simply love this type of paper.

Have had feedback already - and know that several of them are now hanging on various Christmas trees. Got the idea to make this "ornament" last year, when I made some of these as money gift holders and the receivers said, that they could be used as Christmas decorations. The money gift version, however, did not have any colorful paper on the back side but found that necessary if to be used as a hanging ornament.

Did not write a message inside, but attached a handwritten note with all of them using a stamp from Birdie Brown - Santa looks familiar? Well that is because I used it on this project. And yes, the note is blurry to protect Torico's design.

Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays
