My Christmas Ornaments Collection: A Groovy Vehicle


To continue with my Christmas Ornaments Collection posts here is my Groovy Vehicle. Can you see the glitter? It's sparkly and happy. This is one of my most favorite ornaments. After taking the photo I realized that my vehicle looks like on route through the Golden Gate going to my favorite city, San Francisco.

Christmas Decorations: Candy Wrappers and Cupcake Liner Flowers

Christmas Decorations: Candy Wrappers and Cupcake Liner Flowers

Always enjoy crafting with cupcake liners but this time I also used red candy wrappers to make these Christmas flowers. A simple project using materials I already had.

MATERIALS:

Cupcake liners in silver and white
Red candy wrappers
Scrapbooking brads
Paper scissors
Craft reamer  


INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Draw your flowers and make a template
  2. Using your template then draw your flowers on the cupcake liners
  3. NOTE that I made two different four petal flower shapes with each liner for mine 
  4. Using paper scissors cut out your cupcake liner flowers
  5. Using paper scissors cut out a circle from a silver liner
  6. Assemble your flowers just like the image above
  7. With the craft reamer pierce the center of your flowers
  8. Insert a brad in each one and secure on the back  
You can do so many things with these Christmas flowers! Hang them on the tree, use them as gift toppers, etc. Enjoy!

Enjoy making things with cupcake liners I will be sharing a few more projects. Stay tuned!
