My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Hello Everyone!

The past couple of weeks, I have been helping a friend make ornaments for an event at her church.  These are no where near all of them...(literally numbered in the hundreds) but these are two of the papers she chose.

I thought they came out super cute, so I decided to make some for my friends and family and I used a cute snowflake image from the set Warm Winter by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.

To make these, you will need:
2 strips of patterned paper 12" x 2".
Score each piece of strip at 1/2" all along the 12". Then fold accordion style.
Use sticky strip tape to adhere the 2 pieces together, inserting a piece of string at the top for hanging.
I used a dab of hot glue in the center of the rosette to hold it together and then just embellish as you wish.

The center circles measure 1 3/4" and 2" and the snowflake is embellished with a rhinestone and some glitter.

So, have you started making anything for Christmas this year?  I would love to know. 
Thanks for visiting!
