Holiday Anything But a Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH 
"Holiday Anything But a Card Blog Hop" 
For this blog hop, the challenge was to use current product to make anything but a card, plus, it had to have a holiday theme.  I'm curious what inspiration we will discover among our collective, creative brains.  For this blog hop we have 7 CTMH consultants participating. Haley Dyer's Blog you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog: HERE. 
This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  Here we go!

For my "anything but a card", I decided to create an origami ornament.  This Saturday, I have planned a craft day with the kids from church, their friends and siblings.  This gives parents time to shop and wrap gifts without the kids.  I set up creation stations and the kids are really awesome, helping each other to create gifts, tags, cards, or some just like to color.  It's a great way to get rid of some of my stash, teach techniques and provide a fun time; a gift to my friends, their kids and I really feel like it's a gift I give myself - creative time with kids.... cannot get much better!
I had one hour to prepare and photo this orgami ornament - it's really FAST!  The hardest part is figuring out the instruction from the directions
I love our white and gold skinny ribbon, perfect for these ornaments. 
I cut 6 inch squares from the "Season Mix" (green) and used both sides of the green "Tis the Season"
Looks like it just needs a touch of the gold shimmer brush!! haha!!
  I love all paper crafting. One year I made all my wrapping paper from Amazon packing paper -smoothed it out and rolled it up after stamping it with white snowflakes. (over 7 yards!!)

Now "Hop" on over to Katy Taylor  to see her work!
