"I was really pleased to be asked to make a Christmas Decoration as part of Graphic 45’s design teams projects for December. I have been racking my brain to come up with something simple that anyone can make. So this is it, it is easier than it looks. It’s all the wonderful Graphic 45 paper that makes it look so amazing.
I have done a 'not so little' tutorial for anyone wanting to have a go. Remember you can adapt it to suit your own style or dies/punches you have. You will really want to use Graphic 45’s 'Twas the night before Christmas papers for this project. You will need to do some fussy cutting and the Father Christmas image on ' is the best Father Christmas, I have seen on any Christmas paper this year! I am also a big fan of the 'Holly', I keep cutting it out for every Christmas project I have made so far.
I used a Graphic 45 Tag from their Staples Tag album for a foundation. This gives my decoration a bit of support and it needs it. With all the layers I have done and the foam tape, it is very 3D. The Tag also allows you to add a photo for personal message on the back. So have a go and make a beautiful Christmas star for your tree and if you can bear to give it away, then a very beautiful decoration for that special someone’s tree."~Jane
