The first tutorial is by Sandy at Quill Cottage - so go there for full instructions (very detailed: lots of step by step photos, you can't go wrong!) Sandy has also posted a link to another tutorial (below)  which I've also listed here just in case you miss it...

This one is so easy I can't believe it! (although you have to have the kind of brain to think of these things first - which I don't, lol). By Karoline at Cherished Vintage, again there are great step-by-step photographs and it's a fabulous project. I can see this in transparency film, glitter papers....

I just ADORE Christmas, and everything about it! I put up our tree yesterday, so we get full benefit right through to 12th Night (6 January). Sigh....

    Oh Susie Sweetie...
    What a beautiful share of tutorials this morning. I love them, and can't wait to give them a try. You are a jewel for sharing.

    I love them all, and have been wanting to sit and make a few little items of love, for a few little friends, so you have tossed me just what I needed. Many thanks sweetie.

    Hope you have a great Friday. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

  2. I'm so sorry you are snowed in! Geesh, what's up with that? I was thinking about you earlier because I want to make a book using my mother's letters to me over the years. One will be a Blurb typed thingy and then...sit down...I may enter the world of scrap-booking, okay, kicking and screaming, but they should be preserved.

    I cannot tell you how much I love these ornaments. Just my style. And, thank you thank you thank you for the link. I may not make them this year, but they are perfect for supplies I have on hand.
