How-To: A Scrappy Christmas Ornament

Not only am I so happy to be back to the land of blogging after a very long, mitten making filled hiatus, but I’m so excited to be participating in my first blog hop!

Welcome to all of my new readers!

Cream City Ribbon (you may remember them from my last giveaway) helped bring all of us together, so don’t forget to leave a comment below and/or subscribe to my blog, and you’ll be eligible to win a yummy goodie bag filled with a little bit of everything crafty, and, of course, some Cream City Ribbon!  (I’m selecting the winner Wednesday, December 15th at midnight!) The requirements of the blog hop were that we incorporate Cream City Ribbon into our project (I used mine as the ribbon to hang my ornament) and that we reuse and recycle as much as we could.  I’m happy to say that I made my ornament completely from scraps I had in my stash!

Take a peek at my fun little Christmas Ornament How-To Video below!
