Post-Christmas energy

I am in the mood to make Christmas decorations. It only happens after the REAL Christmas is over - all the stress and rush to go and do is over and I finally have time...

I found this wonderful idea over at Paper Forest that I couldn't wait to try. I love working with paper!

The first one I tried turned out like this. I followed the directions explicitly and found that I really needed a circle cutter.

My next ones were of book covers that I've been saving for a rainy day. Although the spread-out look is a little creepy, I think the idea has merit.

Look what happens when you don't put in any alternate color and just use a book cover!

I've bought a couple of old atlases at Friends of the Library booksales. I realized that I could make ornaments for all my family of the places they live. My brother and his wife live in Rexburg, ID.

Can't wait to do some more!!!


Whatcha thinkin'?
