Here’s the Christmas wallhanging that coordinates with this altered Christmas journal I made two weeks ago. This project was for a basket that was auctioned off to raise money for my hospital’s health foundation and the projects had to be silver and white. It was really difficult to work with no color — I kept wanting to add red and green accents. 😉 I was inspired by a wallhanging that I saw on Pinterest, as well as one I made for my daughter several years ago and uploaded to the Dirty Dozen gallery on Splitcoast here (you need to be a paying member to see this particular wallhanging).
I purchased chipboard coasters several years ago and discovered that I only had a few left. I didn’t have time to order any so I made my own by using the very sturdy cardboard backing that lines the 12×12 Glimmer Paper packs from SU!. I used a rotary cutter, quilter’s ruler and mat to cut the cardboard to four inches square. These “coasters” ended up being just as sturdy as the store-bought coasters (and they were free), so save the backing! 😉 The ring at the top is a one-inch silver book ring. The 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon was attached with a hot glue gun and then I lined the back of each coaster with a 4×4 square of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Here are close-ups of each coaster:
This is what happens when you rush a project (but mostly because you need reading glasses because you can’t see the fine print anymore) — the frame that outlines the J is upside down! 😀
The wreath was stamped in VersaMark ink with the En Francais background stamp and embossed with Whisper White embossing powder.
I LOVE the Typeset Alphabet Bigz dies and know I will get TONS of use out of these letter/number dies!
