Maggie Lovers Challenge - Christmas anything but a card

Today is the start of a new challenge at Maggie Lovers Challenges and this month we would like to see you create something Christmas just not a card. I admit when I first saw this challenge I was fretting and racking my brain as to what I could do. In the end I ended up pulling out my old Magnolia Ink's and gained inspiration from a couple of the creations by Tab and Claudia in lasts year Christmas edition. I believe that I have made it totally my own though. 

So still not entirely sure on what I was going to create I headed off to spotlight and started grabbing stuff and thinking that could work....By the time I got home I had about 10 ideas floating in my head but decided to go with the bauble choice. I am now going to show you my creation (be warned a few pics coming on) and then talk about it a bit further...

here is a pic with the reverse side of the scalloped circle. I just printed the text out on the computer and added a little colour

Here is a picture of it hanging

Here is a close up of the bauble

So the bauble is a Polystyrene ball which I have painted gold ( took a few coats). Then I simply pinned the ribbon on and into place. The second hanging section I have also just pinned on to the ball and added the bow. It is actually a really quick and easy thing to make and think that I may be making a few more between now and Christmas. 

So get your creative minds on, or if yours is suffering like mine flick through some old Magnolia Ink's and get creating! I look forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations.
