by Megan Lloyd | 5 years ago
SO sorry for the delay in getting this post up! Being the social media and trade show coordinator sometimes has its conflicts...and you saw them yesterday. We are currently exhibiting at the Pinners Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah (did you see they will be in Phoenix and Dallas next year??). Yesterday...it was BUSY!!! And we are soooo grateful, it was so much fun! However, by the time I got home last night, I had no energy to post. Long story short, here we are now!
Here are Yolie and Tessa's projects from our team—I'll insert Yolie's post here and show Tessa's project below (she's got all the details on her blog):
Hi all, Yolie here! For my project, I made a sleigh with the Mercury Glass stack and my favorite May Arts ribbons. Here are the details:
The sleigh is a pattern cut with the Cricut Explore using The Christmas Mercury Glass Stack. I used 2 sheets of the red and 1 gold; it was easy to assemble. I used the green 3/4" Mini Pom Pom ribbon to decorate the edge of the sleigh. I then heat embossed the sentiment and used pop dots to adhere. This is the perfect gift for a Secret Santa.
For Santa's Sack, I removed the drawstring from the muslin bag and used fabric glue to adhere the 3/4" Noel canvas ribbon to the inside of the bag. I then layered the green 3/4" Velvet ribbon on top of the red 5/8" Sheer Grosgrain Stitched ribbon. I used a gold star straight pin to close and added the jewelry charm, "Christ is the Reason for the Season". Additionally, I cut strips out of gold tissue paper and used it a filler.
Now to reveal Santa's secret. The bottom of the sleigh has a secret compartment. Gasp! The chassis is a box! Room for more treats! Let's load it up because I've been nice all year long!
