So, this year, many of my friends and family will get these handmade ornaments. There are more than 55 pieces to each one, and is truly a labor of love. (Like fruitcake, only different.)
I made my ornaments entirely from patterned paper...at 40 ornament die cuts apiece, there was no way I was stamping and centering forty dozen times. I also did a total stash raid...these are all retired DSP sets. It felt really good to use up so much paper that I loved. Good to see them going to a good home!
Here are some individual pics...
Last year's Deck the Halls DSP
Is this pattern from two years ago? I have way too much retired paper!
I like how the stripes turned out on this one, it's retired BoBunny paper (non-SU)
So what do you do with all of your retired paper sets? Use them just the same? Put them away and swear you'll use them? Sell? Give away? Line the bird cage? I say use them! Banners, gift wrap, bows, whatever.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed and creative day!
