Day 2 of the 14 Days of Giveaways -Just Nick Studio


Welcome to Day 2 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways!  Each weekday from December 1-14, 2017 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

When Nicole showed us all the cut files available, I fell in love with the  Snowflake design! and so many ideas formed in my head.  But i chose one that is all about decor, and can easily be used in your home.

Since we change the color scheme of our Christmas decor every few years, i chose to create this garland to match the colors of the tree decorations.  It all started by using some foil to create the snowflake designs, and letters (the letters have a white matte foil finish!).  I cut a few of the Snowflakes in three different sizes, and set them aside.

Next i used some strips  (1.5in wide) to create the paper rosettes, and glued them to a piece of jute cord. I used those small heart die cuts (some leftover pieces from previous projects) to hold the rosettes together, and to attach them to the string.

Next I used Marquee Alpha cut file to cut the word JOY from the white matte foiled paper.  I made sure to size the letters so that they fit in the center of each paper rosette.

Then it was just a matter of assembling all the pieces together.   I used silicone (hot) glue to attach the foiled snowflakes to each of the rosettes.   The center ones got a letter ( i cut two of each letter, and glued them together), while the corner ones got  three snowflakes ( in graduating sizes and colors) and a small star sequin in the center.  I just love the look of the garland.

This is what the garland looks like in our tree.  We are working on adding the word PEACE now!.   I hope this inspires you to use the cut file in a different craft other than a layout!.
