Christmas is coming!

First up, apologies for lack of blog entries... I haven't done much craft stuff at all the last few days. There's just been too much going on - don'tcha just hate it when life gets in the way of crafting?! I've been busy getting things ready for Jack's 1st birthday next week - where did that year go? - and I'll post his card when the paint's dry.

But for now you'll have to make do with these cute Christmas decorations. I've seen so many that various craft-blogging people have done and I thought I'd have a go.

I used a Woodware 3 inch scalloped circle punch on various DCWV papers. You can use more or less pieces, but I think 8 works quite well. You could also use a smaller punch - I used the 3 inch size because it's the only one I have!

The deccie on the left has 10 pieces, but I think it's a bit cramped. The one in the middle has 8, and the last one has 7 - I know, I know... it was supposed to be 8 but Cory decided he needed to cut one of them in half and it was the last of that paper! That last one makes all the difference!
