jingle all the way
I know. My family should probably kill me. It’s not even November, much less December. But goodness gracious, if you want to stay ahead of the game, ya just gotta start early!
So here’s a jingly Christmas decor item to deck your halls…or a friend’s halls…or whatever the case may be.
This is suuuuper easy to make!Here’s a list of the ingredients.
You just need five things: frame, paper, bells, vinyl and phrase.
First you need this kit,
which has that lovely little cut file in it. :)
Cut this in vinyl (mine was 5.875″ high) and apply it to the glass frame mentioned below. I used fuzzy (flocked) vinyl, but then when I went to find it in the Silhouette store, it wasn’t there anymore. Ack! I love that stuff! Actually, the red flag on that vinyl went up when I went to cut it and the settings weren’t there. So, if you have some and want to use it, I put my settings on Speed/8, Thickness/14, Blade/3 and No Cutting Mat.
And if you don’t have a cutting machine?
Just print the saying onto a transparency and voila!
The frame is from Hobby Lobby
and looks like this.
And then you need your Jingle Bells.
You only need maybe half…just over half? Sprinkle them into the bottom of the frame once you have the vinyl phrase on and you can see just how many you’ll need. I liked making my go up the sides a little, surrounding the bottom of the word ‘way’. Once you put the back of the frame on, they can stay in place pretty well.
And then you need one sheet of this lovely paper
that I adore from Teresa Collins.
Adhere it to the back of the frame, but be sure to scooch it down just a smidge so the back can go back into the slot. It doesn’t like it with the paper in there and you won’t even see that adjustment on the other side anyway.
