handmade paper sheets that had a handmade paper layer (my own) glued to a quarter sheet of cardstock. I added a large brad through all the layers and tied on a short piece of coordinating fiber!!
That is number four and we have eight to go!!

I layered double sided tape onto red cardstock and cut it with my Big Shot and a heart die (SX). I did both large ones and small ones. They used the large ones today on this piece of art and will be using the small ones later for a different page.
I added glitter to a plastic container which was big enough for them to place their shapes into which worked very well. This double sided tape is very sticky and we had difficulty removing the backing paper. I found it helpful to use a push pin to get it started on one side.
The die cut trees had a triangle of double sided tape added to the back which allowed us to rub glitter into its openings which immediately created a "decorated" tree!!
For the second piece, I peeled off the backing paper from the triangle I had added to the back of the tree for the glitter and placed it over the handmade paper layered with a book page. Glued that to the red embossed cardstock, pierced a hole through all the layers and added an embossed gold star sequin using a gold brad.
Two more pieces of art for our calendar!!
They could be used for a wedding, anniversary, baptism, confirmation or first communion! I really like the look of the white on white!!
Over the next few weeks we will be creating little pieces of art which will be incorporated into a calendar!
