Christmas collage shapes
These pretty little things were so fun to make and I have used them as gifts, embellishments on presents, enclosures in Christmas cards, ornaments on the tree and decorations hanging from a mirror. They are easy and nearly all the supplies I used were furnished via junk mail. But just to make it interesting, I tossed in pieces of ribbon, foil wrapping paper and recycled Christmas cards.
I cut my underlying shape from a piece of junkmail cardstock, then glued stripes of decorative paper on one side, trimmed, and repeated the process on the other side.
Adding the beaded dangle makes them prettier ornaments, but they are just stinking cute all on their own.
I’m still incubating the idea, but this is likely to become a larger scale collage for our home, perhaps later this year, after I decide on the combination of papers that will harmonize well together and create a visually appealing effect.
