My Creative Time's 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ~DAY 7

Hello My Creative Time friends! Welcome to Day 7 of the MCT's 12 days of Christmas Blog Hop! If you came from Liz's blog, you are in the right place. For my project, I wanted to make something quick and and simple to give as a Christmas gift. I thought this would be a great gift for any book lover and crafter! I used the MCT My Favorite Sayings Stamps to make this cute little book mark. I cut the shape using the MCT XL Label Die. I cut the base of the shape out of a thin cereal box then covered it with designer paper. I put a paper clip in between the two layers and adhered them together. I added some ribbon to finish it off. East Peasy right! Let me know what you think and make sure to stop by the DT blogs for more projects!



 Recipe:
SU Chirstmas Paper Collection
Paper Clip
Ribbon
Bling
Cereal box (thin)

Up next is Nikki

Here is the line up in case you get lost along the way.
