Anyway, let's look at the final product and then I will show you what I did to make it. Side 1:
These are the items that I began with:
- Music sheet that I printed from the internet. I'm not musical so I couldn't photocopy something from my collection.
- My snowman Christmas wrap.
- Double sided tape
- Glue Gun
Also needed for later:
- Silver Links
- Card Stock
As you can see, I cut the music notes with the scissors to the size that I wanted for the bag. Ironically, I am using the Bat Wing design for the Christmas Bag.
I used the 2-way tape to stick the music notes to the bag. Then I cut up squares of the Christmas wrap to make the little cones I need to make the wreath-like design.
I finished the round as above and then fitted the cones with the snow-flake side. I trimmed the cones to the shape and length that I needed after I glued them. It may be easier to make them all and then cut before gluing-- live and learn.
Then I took a small piece of card stock and stuck some music note paper to both sides. Used my finger to rub a little coffee on the front to give it a different look. Then I glued this to the centre of the wreath design to cover the mass of glue. Then I tied some jute around the card.
It looked a little bare on the front of the card, so I went to the buttons and links. It kind of looks like a person now that I have glued it on, but that was not the intent.
As for Side 2, it's simple. Glue the music notes to the back. Add a strip of Christmas wrap and a jute bow. Then it's done.
This afternoon holds the excitement of carving Blake's first Pumpkin. Stay tuned for pictures of that.
Then tomorrow will reveal the Halloween Costume that my sister in law and I have been working on
for the past month-- stay tuned for the nest generation of ...... can't reveal yet.
