Holiday Mantle

Hey everyone..welcome back for another scrappy post. It snowed here last night..yay. This is quite the occasion for my neck of the woods as we mostly get rain here in my part of Oregon. I'm so hoping we get some more and possibly have some for Christmas : )

My project I'm sharing with you today is one I created for the Scor-pal DT Blog Week with Core'dinations. You can read the post & tutorial HERE.

I have to tell you this was such a fun project to design and create. I've never made such an architectural piece before and it was quite a challenge for me at first, but here's what I came up with........

This is made from nothing but Core'dinations card stock and Scor-tape : )

Some frosted greenery I had layed perfectly over the mantle. I added some vintage jingle bells for a simple holiday touch. The wreath is from a May Arts project...you can see the post on their blog HERE.

I forgot to take a photo but I have this sitting in my built in bookcase next to my real life mantle...it looks so nice displayed there. I'll try to remember to take a photo tonight and add it to this post. I have the small tree, that's shown in the May Arts post, next to it and it looks really cool.

Well..that's it for now. I have another project coming up this week with Scor-pal and Fancy Pants (it will be posted this Wednesday the 19th)..it's another holiday project so be sure to come back and check it out. I'll have a sneek peek for you later today in another post : )

Happy Craftin!!
