Winter Wooden Photo Clip **My First Blog Candy!!** YAY!!

I love altering these cute jumbo wooden clips. They can be used for any occasion. This is one of many I will be displaying on my mantle this year. This years theme is definitely snowflakes and sparkle!! I love it! I can't wait to start decorating for Christmas! It's my favorite time of year! Even more so now, that I have my little elf around!! ;) I definitely need a home just to store all my decorations though! I have way too much! (at least that's what the hubby says!) LOL
Anywho, this clip was made with some yummy My Mind's Eye papers, a foam snowflake, that I picked up a bag of them for like 2 bucks, which I coated with some Aleene's Tacky glue and then sprinkled on some silver and white glitter. So sparkly!!! I then added a button and some hemp cord to it. Behind the snowflake, I adhered part of a holiday pick and some "branches" punched out with my trusty old Martha Stewart branch punch. I used a hot glue gun to adhere everything to the clip. On the sides of the clip I glued on some white Pom-Pom trim(Wright's). And then to top it off I added a lace ribbon bow to the top.


***I hope you like it! I am going to give one of these away! So if you would like one all you have to do is, please leave me a comment! If you leave a comment and follow me and become "my friend", you will get 2 chances to win one! I will place all the names in a hat(actually probably a bowl-HeHe)and have my son pick a name or two! I will post the winner, or maybe winners ;), on next Friday, November 28th, BLACK FRIDAY at around 8 pm!! So Good Luck!!*****

Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day!!

Hugs, Melissa
