It's Christmas time!!!

I can hardly believe it's Christmas time again!!  It's my favorite time of year.  I have a lot to be Thankful for, my husband, my children, my friends and family, my home, my pets, but MOST of all for our Saviour Jesus Christ.  With all the hustle and bustle of giving and getting, we often lose the true meaning of Christmas, which is Christ. 

I have been out of pocket for a while.  Life sometimes has different plans than we do.  I'm going to try to catch up a little and share some Christmas projects I've been working on.

Today I want to share these cute "floating" ornaments I made.   I first seen this idea at The Sewer, The Caker, The Copycat Maker.  The possibilities are endless.  We recently took a trip to see my family in Louisiana.  I made several for family and friends there.   I have a picture posted at the bottom of this post.  It's not a great one, but you can see the idea.  I do have a tutorial in the works and will post it as soon as I finish.  I really wanted to share these before it's done though. 

Candy Cane Christmas Papers

Hope you enjoy and hope everyone is having fun getting ready for Christmas.  I plan to work on Christmas gifts this weekend.  Wish me luck!!

  2. Thanks Nancy. They were so fun to make.

    1. Hi Kathy, sorry I'm just now responding. I just have seen the notification. I printed the image on acetate (transparency), backed it with vinyl and then simply roll it up and stick it in the ornament. I done a tutorial that you can view here... Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, feel free to help...:)
