Advent Calendar - Karen Gist

Happy weekend everyone!

Whoop whoop it's Saturday!!
Hope you all have something nice planned,
I'm decorating at home so shall be painting 
and wallpapering, I'm sure you will be doing 
something more exciting than me!!

Well, today we welcome Karen Gist.
Karen was full time on our DT until quite
recently but has now agreed to come
back and share some of her beautiful 
creations with us!!

She has made a lovely project using 
one of the brilliant Tando Creative products!

So, let's see what she has been up to......

Karen has used the new Tando Christmas Shelf
which we will have very soon!!

Karen says -

Glue the pieces of the Tando Tree together
 and cover it with pieces of old book pages.
 When its thoroughly dry and a layer of 
Gesso. Paint some hearts and the star with
 Emperors Gold. Attach the hearts between the
 shelves as shown. 

 Glue lace to the 
edges of the shelves.

Thread up the shelves and the star with the string
 provided. Cover the matchboxes with patterned 
paper (I used parcel paper on some. Mount the
 labels onto the same papers and thread them
 onto the Bakers Twine as you tie it onto the parcels.

Hang the Shelves up and add the parcels in a 
random order.

Wow,wow,wow, isn't this

Thank you Karen!

I hope you have been inspired to start
some Christmas projects, it's not going 
to go away and will be upon us really 
soon now!!

I'll be back tomorrow with our new
Weekly Challenge.  Need to get my 
thinking cap on and come up with a 
new topic.  Hmmmm.......
