Day 3 of 12 Days of Christmas

Love this!!! Isn't it pretty. I made one similar last year but it was alot tougher because we didn't have Silver Glitter paper. Now we do. Yeah! And I am loving it to pieces this Christmas.

So I started with Baja Breeze c/s and punched out 6, 1 3/8" circles with space around them. Next I punched the 2 3/8" Scallop Circles around them. Then I ran them through the Big Shot in the Snow Burst EF and sponged them to bring out the impression.
Then folded them in half and glued them together leaving one open. I folded my 6 snowflakes in half as well and glued them around some silver cord. Next I glued that last one shut from the Baja Breeze scallop circles around the snowflakes and on the silver cord. I added a few buttons and a Square Firestone Brad to the bottom and a Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon bow with some Jingle Bells to the top.
I've entered this in 2 challenges.
