Decorate for the Holidays!

Today's post is an adorable wall or door hanging that is so simple to make. I used the Big Shot and cut out eight Scalloped squares from card stock. I chose colors that coordinate with the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper so the design-work was simple.

I then cut out four scalloped circles using the Big Shot and the letters to spell out NOEL. To assemble the hanging, I adhered four different pieces of designer paper to the fronts of four of the squares. Then I adhered the scalloped circle and the letters along with some simple embellishments.

Using Tombow adhesive, I attached the ribbon to the back of each of the squares leaving a loop at the top. Then I adhered the rest of the scalloped squares to the backs. This hides the ribbon and protects it. It also gives the whole thing a little more stability. Lastly, I tied another length of ribbon to the bottom. I thought a jingle bell would have been cute too (if I could stand to hear it all day!)

Happy Thanksgiving, Carla! I just pulled old tom out of the oven and am waiting for him to cool a bit so I thought I would pop by a few of my favorite blogs. When I got to yours I laughed out loud!! Last night I was in a craft store and got a steal of a deal on large jingle bells. I bought them to make a wall hanging using the scallop square die cut. ha! great minds! I had in mind to put my squares on the diagonal so mine might be a smidge different. Wish I could make it today but I am prepping for a Stamp a stack I have this weekend. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas!
