I'm excited to be back sharing my December Say it with Letters project! (Back to the Tim tags tomorrow!!) For those of you who don't know, SIWL is a company that produces wooden letters and shapes (even custom work!) that can be easily altered with paint or paper. Check out their products, they're fabulous!
This month we're all focused on the holidays and my assisgnment this month was to alter a Christmas tree. As soon as I received this in the mail, I thought white and sparkly! (Quite a change for me as our own real tree is covered in vintage ornaments!!)
I knew that we had some great white sparkly paper in the store so I picked that up and got the tree covered. (I used Zip Dry to adhere the paper but any strong glue will work) I used white stain ribbon to cover the edges of the tree, again using Zip Dry. As I was holding ribbon, waiting for glue to dry, I spied the white rose ribbon sitting in my ribbon tray (ribbon by Tim Holtz) and thought I'd give that a try to see how it looked on the tree. Insert happy face as I attached the first piece of ribbon...love the white roses!!
Want to see what everyone else on the team created (you'll love the different designs!!), head on over to the SIWL blog!
