Some may say it is too early for Christmas decorations but it is never too early to try a new craft technique even if the project is Christmas related. In this episode Michelle revisits her "Peace on Earth" holiday decoration project with a new technique. Using large strips of craft paper she creates paper flowers which then frame the saying.

To make your own decoration gather these supplies:

  • Large piece of cardboard (a cereal box works great)
  • Vintage text (old text book pages work)
  • Tulle
  • Scissors
  • Pinking shears
  • White glue, like paste or a glue stick (not liquid glue)
  • Scrap of ribbon
  • Stamps
  • StazOn ink Pad (black or brown)
  • Circle templates (round plates work well)
  • Stickles
  • Ruler
  • Long craft paper or paper bag to make flower
  • Tacky glue to glue paper flowers
  • Alphabet or word stamps
  • Black Sharpie
