Now, we can't let a day go by without an amazing project to inspire and delight! This project by Miranda Edney is perfect for the wintry weather many of us are experiencing. It's a beautiful altered ice skate using The Twelve Days of Christmas - Miranda shows us clever ways to use our Christmas collection for the whole winter season! She even provides a stunning tutorial!

"I am a lover of all things wintery, minus the temperature LOL! Growing up in TN as a kid we had lots of blizzards and with that , tons of winter activities! Ice skating was one of those that I loved! When I saw these skates at my work, I knew 12 Days of Christmas paper was perfect for them! I created a little scene in the opening at the top, filled with fussy cut images and chippies. Hope you like the tutorial and will give them a try!" - Miranda
