For the hop today, I've created .......

A Merry Christmas altered plate. I had so much fun with this project.

I took a silver plate I got from walmart and used some green felt fuzzy feeling stickers and spelled out merry Christmas along the top and bottom. I then cut and glued some red and white striped ribbon ( got from swap ) along the edge of the plat. I got to say this was the hardest part of the whole project. I then took some cuts and paper pieced a tree, a reindeer, Santa clause,2 presents. I attached them with pop dots to make it dimensional. I glued some large flat back pearls around the plate on the ribbon where it is connected. Used stickles for my ornaments on the tree. I-Rock gems for the spots on the reindeer.

Here is my finished project.

Thank you again for checking out my project...  You are now on your way to Mindy's place. Now follow the links below and remember to visit all the stops for MAXIMUM ideas and LOTS OF FUN!!
