Now that, is the spirit of the season if you ask me!!
I have a project in it that I just LOVE!! It is a board book, that I turned into a fancy living room with a fireplace on the cover, but I cut through the book, so the fireplace is seen inside too. And I made a tree out of rolled book paper. It was so fun to make, and I think it will look lovely on my mantle or table this year.
I would love to have a fancy room like this, with real twigs in the fireplace, handmade stockings made from Melissa Frances paper, tied to the mantle with a bow. And a "real" looking fire in the fireplace made with fusible fibers.
This is the inside. What a lovely family room this would be!! I used a lovely paper for the wall paper, more twigs in the fireplace and more fusible fibers for the fire. The tree took me quite a while to make. Rolling so many little pieces of paper, and gluing them just so. The gauze on the bottom is the tree skirt and then the star on top. I bought the tiny wreath from AC Moore for above the fireplace.
This is a close up of the tree.
I hope you are all enjoying the season, and getting ready for all of the festivities this time of year. Thanks so much for visiting, and I hope you enjoy our FREE gift to you!!!
