I want to share with you a creation I had wanted to do for some time now. I was origionally going to do something like this (with this spool in mind) for Easter ...
Then, I thought it would be fun to do a fall-themed centerpiece with this spool...But before I knew it, fall was almost over...

So when I saw these stamps, I knew they were just the thing I was waiting for!
They inspired me to dig out this lil vintage spool and get crafty! Just in time for the holiday season upon us....
So here's what I did!



Instead of a plain greeting card, I thought it would be fun to create something that is more of a ornament/decor item, that can still be given away as a holiday greeting to someone special! 


The large snowflake is from Melissa Frances. I've painted it, distressed it, and then glittered it (with several layers and types of glitter)...Then I added a stamped snowflake (Vintage Snowflakes set) image and one of my handmade buttons in the center...Along with a stamped sentiment (Season's Greetings set)


The spool also got a generous coating of paint, followed by some distressing, some twine, a stamped sentiment (Season's Greetings set), and some pretty findings like trim, a crystal pin and a button :)


For the top of the spool, I stamped the lovely snowflake image onto white cardstock with brown ink, and cut it out. I adhered it to the top of the spool before I added the snowflake!

Soooooo glittery and full of holiday cheer!
