I admit that this card is my second favorite of the series! I love the goose and the banners! Plus, the blue print on the reverse of the Ladies Dancing sheet is beautiful.


I created a fancy banner by cutting bits of paper with a banner die cut template. I added some sparkly ribbon and a few blue roses to really spice it up. (You could use the Cardstock Banners instead of die cut shapes.)


I fussy cut the goose from the Golden Rings paper and used foam adhesive to pop her off the page.


I decorated the inside of the card with another banner and a strip from the Joyeux Noel paper. I added a bit of pop by adding a sticker button.

"This is an easy project that you can keep simple for kids, or really doll them up for yourself or your crafty friends. All you need is a 12 Days of Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad, some adhesive and your choice of embellishments! If you want to make a tree topper like in my tree, you just need to flip a cone over and embellish upside down." -Denise Hahn

Off to work but I had to say I love the cone ornaments! Can't wait to come back to watch the video.

WOW- another great gift idea!

This is such a fun project. I am going to create these cones with my Book Club ladies. This is a project I think my non-crafty friends can handle. Thank you for sharing.

It would be an honor to win this wonderfully magnificent prize

The cone ornaments are so colorful and clever.

If I had enough G45, I would make one of these for everyone on my street. I would fill them with candy canes and Christmas chocolate Santas and sweet home-made nuts.

Totally amazing projects. Love the card. Love the paper and colors.

You guys are at it again with the WOW power. Thanks for the awesome tutorial.

I love that card and thank you for the sweet and simple handmade ornament idea! I am definitely going to make some of these with my kiddos this week to decorate our tree! I think it looks so bare each year because we don't have a lot of ornaments and I'm seriously making some paper ones to fill it up this time! Thanks soooo much for the inspiration! <3
