At our house, the day after Thanksgiving is reserved for decorating the house for Christmas. This year, I created something new for the kitchen, and it LOOKS good enough to eat...
but DON'T (unless you want splinters in your teeth)!
Using these adorable gingerbread ornaments from Unique Laser Designs, I made a simple garland with just some ribbon, wooden beads, and twine.
First, I covered the gingerbread men with clear VersaMark ink and then bathed them in embossing powder (Espresso from Adirondack). When I heated them up with the heat gun, I was mesmerized as they developed this great texture that even turned a little white around the edges. Once cooled, I added just a bit of Stickles (rock candy) on the edges to give them just a little sparkle.
These guys are ready for hanging in the kitchen. One decoration down, about 512 more to go!
My term on the Unique Laser Design Team is coming to a close, and I have truly LOVED these wood shapes. I will keep coming back to get more with each new reveal.
And, just for you shoppers, here is a DEAL! 35% of the whole ULD store through Monday (enter the code THANKS35 at checkout). Stuff your stockings!
Don't forget, show us your true colors over at the Scrap It Girl blog...we want to see your projects with COLOR (paint, watercolors, gelatos) by tomorrow (Sunday).
