Wrapped and Unwrapped Mini Tilda

Hello Friends and Happy Wednesday! We are back from our cruise and we had a great time. We visited the Chacchoben Mayan ruins in Costa Maya and went snorkeling in Cozumel. This was our first trip to Mexico and we had some nice warm weather. It felt good to get away for a week and we missed the below zero temps here in Colorado while we were gone. How lucky is that!

By the way, I thought I would take this moment to remind you all that Craft Your Passion Challenges is celebrating our Holiday Havoc Blog Hop this Friday so don’t forget to stop by and join in the fun. There will be chances to win prizes and I will have candy up for grabs as well.

“Wrapped and Unwrapped Mini Tilda”
I finally got my project done that was inspired by Magnolia-licious Highlites “Wrapped Up Holiday Contest.” I envisioned something a little more extravagant but settled on a simple wreath ornament featuring both Wrapped and Unwrapped Mini Tilda stamps.  
The wreaths were cut with my Cricut from Joys of the Season and layered with multi colored green cardstock. I colored my mini Tildas with Copics then used a little gold Stickles on each.
I adhered the back of each image with strong thread so that they dangle in the middle of the wreath. I completed them with a bow and some red pearls.
They were very easy to make which is probably a good thing as I have been very busy since returning home from vacation.

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:

Magnolia-licious Highlites - Wrapped Up Holiday Contest
Pixie Cottage – Anything Goes Christmas Style
Crafts & Me – Christmas
Creative Card Crew – Tis the Season
TOMIC – Christmas Decoration

Thanks for stopping by...
