12 Days of Christmas- Day 4

It's not too late to make some handmade decor for this year's Christmas display!

I have for you a very FUN project- a display tray made for hanging!

So EASY!  I would rate this a medium only because it takes some time to lay things out to get an even balance with all the little bits and pieces... but to copy mine is EASY!  seriously.

One thing to note- use GOOD adhesive... really good.  Every single piece on my tray was attached with liquid glass.  This stuff is really a must have and at any given time I have 3-4 open bottles going- so if I misplace one there is surely another close by.  This stuff is great for all sorts of uses- I once repaired the sole of my shoe and got 6 more months out of that pair!  Yep... shoes.

Here is the supply list...
Display Tray
In color Holiday Dimensional Elements
Pear and Partridge paper (surprise!  I used it on many of my holiday projects that I have.. and will... post!)
almond and pink Glitz Glitter gels
Cranberry Bakers Twine
Burlap Ribbon
Liquid Glass

The best part is that each little section only holds a 3x4" piece of paper... which means it only USES the equivalent of ONE sheet of 12x12 paper.    What a great way to use up bits and pieces left from other projects! 
My daughter loves this so much she is already asking about Valentine and Easter versions.

Now... on to the fun part- but please don't be sad that I am not giving away a project kit- as you can imagine that would be super duper expensive!  But I do still have a fun giveaway:

You had me all excited that I could possibly win this! LOL I am seriously thinking of purchasing it though, do you have them handy that you could bring one on Sunday or would you have to order it? I hate to have you ship it...Humm...gonna have to think on that, but I do LOVE this, loved the halloween one but Christmas is by far my very favorite holiday!
I think I should just start having them direct deposit my check into your

Missy...yes I have supplies to bring a kit with me to save on shipping but unfortunately it wouldn't count on club...just so you know since it wouldn't count for club hostess rewards.
