A Flurry of Snow Angels!

Hi everyone,

Well, Christmas has really taken me by surprise this year - I haven't written a single card or bought any presents at all yet - but I have made some Christmas bunting to decorate the fireplace, so that's ok!

Here it is ...


It all started with some sweet Snow Angels from Luna Girl - what do you think the collective noun for Snow Angels would be? A "flock"? A "shiver"? In this case, maybe a "Download"!? I decided it would be a flurry :o)

Here's what I started with ...


I downloaded the angels from the LunaGirl Etsy shop and printed off several of each to play with. I dug out a couple of sheets of double-sided 12" x 12" paper - it doesn't have a name on and I can remember where I got it, but it has a lovely vintage style print in soft, faded shades of blue, green and pinky-red which matches the angels perfectly. The chipboard bunting came from Every Crafts A Pound - 5 in each bundle for guess how much?! Yes just £1 :o)

Then I rummaged in me drawers for some matching ribbons ...


The bunting was so easy to make - I just covered each side in the patterned paper, sanded and inked the edges, adding gilt cream to give the edges a nice shine, then adhered the angels, alternating with die cut letters (I decided on "LOVE" rather than "NOEL" so it isn't just for Christmas).

Then it just needed some ribbon to hang it up ...


... and some extra ribbons just for show - may add some beads as well for abit of twinkle ...


Voila! A Flurry of Snow Angels!


HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! :o)xxx

I've got the house decorated and cards ordered, but that's about it. Need to work on shopping and our Christmas letter soon.
