After stripes of fabric & trims coloured the background, I then added lots of Imagine if . . xmas chipboard pieces, along with ribbon, handmade poinsettia & gorgeous holly leaves.
This is the 'raw' product, which upon first sight was quite daunting.
Here is the stocking with the background stripes attached, now ready for the decorations. Everything was hot glued in place - I have a burnt finger to prove it.
Enjoy these close ups of the decorations.
The poinsettia was relatively each to make, follow the tutorial here and I found a easy to follow tutorial for the double bow on You Tube here.
This has been quite a tricky project to complete within the time frame I now have available at this busy time of year. I can't wait to see what the other girls on the Design Team have come up with on their stockings. If you are following the blog hop correctly you would have started with the newsletter from Jo, worked thru the girls to Carol before me, then follow this link to go back to the Lilian who is at the top of the list.
Imagine If products used: stockings
gingerbread men, candy canes & santas hat
mini xmas tree
We hope this has really put you in the xmas mood, as there's not too many sleeps to go now.
