Christmas Medallion

on this Thanksgiving Weekend.

We are on the Robin's Nest Christmas Blog Hop.

So I am using the Black and White Christmas line
for my Medallion today.

I started with the Snow Covered Trees CS
I comes in glittered or non glittered

Snow Covered Trees Cardstock

Cut the cardstock into 4 6x6 pieces.
Then I made a cone and stapled this in the back.

To look like this.
I then dipped the open pointed edge into gorilla glue.
It was the only glue my dad had at his house.

I wasn't sure about it, but wanted to get the project done,
so used it.  But.... I got this clumpy look from the gorilla glue that
I would not have gotten from just elmers glue.

Then I stapled two together like this.

Then the whole circle together.

I cut 3 circles from 3 cardstocks.
Red Classic Swirl Glitter Cardstock
Red Glitter Classic Swirl CS
Snow Covered Trees Cardstock
Snow Covered Trees CS
Gold Glitter Chipboard
gold glitter chipboard comes in 6x6

I cut a rosette on my Cricut from

White on White Classic Glitter Swirl Cardstock
White Glitter Classic Swirl 
and glued it onto the Gold Glitter chipboard.

Christmas Words Glitter Cardstock
Then on the top I cut "Peace on Earth" from the
Christmas Words Glitter CS
I glued it on like a ribbon.

On the outside edge of the Red Classic Swirl
I glued Red Metallic Dew Drops.

Then I glued Red Tear Drops around the edge of the 
Gold Glitter Chipbard.

Around the Snowy Covered Trees I glued
White Diamond Drops

Then on each of the cones I glued one
Red Metallic Dew Drop

I am thinking that I will put this
on the top of Dad's Christmas tree.

He gave away all the Christmas stuff that mom had collected
over the years to family members.
I will later show our "newly decorated tree"
It will be fun, and this year my
goal is to bring Christ into our Christmas a little more.

Happy decorating this week-end!
This only took me one evening, and the night to dry,
then staple it all together.

Merry Christmas!
