It's beginning to look alot like Christmas 🎅

Hey everyone! I've got some Christmas projects using MixedUP Merchandise printables!

I used the above sheet called Christmas Wishes - they're adorable! 

The first one is a jar that I've put a battery candle in - it will light up! 

I covered the jar with white gesso, not being careful to be perfect - I wanted some texture. I went over it was Rose Gold Art Alchemy wax to show the lines & imperfections. I then cut out my printable, added some snowflake paste & embellishments & voila!

Super easy! Next is a wooden block. I covered it with a book page, then added a couple of old correspondence printables. I fussy cut my Christmas printable and adhered her onto a background of sisal. I added some Sari ribbon fibers for her hair & inked the edges.  

This last item is something different. You know those big, long wads of kraft paper you sometimes get in your packaging - you unwad it and it's like 15 feet long! I save that stuff for my projects 😃. I went into Photoshop & picked my printable. Then I sized & arranged copies of the printable in a zigzag repeating pattern - my project file was sized to legal.  I then cut a piece of the kraft paper down to legal printer paper size, taped it to a piece of paper so it wouldn't get jammed (it's lighter weight than regular printer paper) - and printed my file onto it. Wrapping paper! You can wrap smaller things like books, jewelry boxes, a pair of cozy socks. And you can use all kinds of printables to personalize it! 

Lots of fun things can be created this holiday season - or year around! There's so many different styles that can be resized, recolored, & manipulated to fit your project!
