Thinking of Christmas Yet?

Hi guys! I'm back with...... you guessed it, another Maya Road CHA project. Are you thinking about Christmas yet? Probably not! - And when I was trying to figure out what to make, with this album, I wasn't either. But then I remembered my stash of Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses and was totally inspired to go Christmas!!! :)

The banner was made with Maya Road's new Pennant Chipboard Album. And can I just say "I love, love, love this album!" Each album comes with 4 scalloped pages and 4 plain ones. The size of the plain pages are about 4 3/4" by 7" and the scalloped ones are a little bigger, so they're a really nice size to play with.

The little bird in the center of the banner, was made out of half a paper mache egg. The egg was covered with punched border strips and then I added chipboard wings, legs and a beak.
For the hat, I made a small cone out of some patterned paper. Then scrunched it around a little, until I was happy with the shape. To finish it off I added some Maya Road trim, fur and a pom pom.

Here you can see how I used the Green and Turquoise Trinket Leaf Pins to embellish the banner. Some under the small Chipboard Snowflakes (shown above) and again on the larger snowflakes seen below.

Maya Road Supplies used:
Pennant Album
Snowflake Coaster
Mini Snowflakes
Bubble Dots Crochet Trim
Zig Zag Crochet Trim
Decorative Scrolls (in beak)
Wings Chipboard Sheet
Birds of a Feather Mini Chipboard Set (used branches for legs)
Mixed Scalloped Triangle Banner (beak)
Trinket Pins
Trinket Beads
Metal rings

Other Supplies:
Basic Grey - Patterned papers and buttons
Fiskars - Border punch
October Afternoon - Mini letter stickers

Hobby Lobby - Paper mache egg, embroidery floss, fur trim, pom pom, eyes, bells, ribbon and glitter.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hi Jennifer! I just saw your post on the Maya Road blog for the snowman countdown calender you made -- took my breath away! Can you please send me a more detailed note on how you made the head/hat and attached them to the base -- I'm confused on this part. Also, what papers did you use -- I love the ledger paper! Is the scarf paper or fabric? I am now following your blog ... you are an AMAZING artist :)
