CHRISTMAS AND BOWS ARE M.F.E.O.

(MFEO: Made For Each Other!)  Here's my very best Christmas decorating tip... I go to Costco (perhaps it's called Sam's Club in your area), and purchase several rolls of Christmas ribbon with wire edges for around $7 each.  I make pretty bows and put them on EVERYTHING... On wreaths, garlands, the mantle, trees, anything that's not breathing.  Bows are economical and FLAMBOYANT!  I'll show you photos of my house as soon as I'm finished decorating.  Today's card has a teeny-tiny-itsy-bitsy bow... 

Wreath-2

CHRISTMAS WREATH:  1) Use the Bigz Die Scallop Circle-2 to cut the wreath.  2) Cut a small circle out of the center with the Circle Scissor Plus.  3) Use the Textured Impressions Folder Petals-A-Plenty to emboss the design on the wreath.  4) Decorate with brads or pretties of your choice.

Wreath-1 

I made this little bow just like I make big bows - even though I needed elf-size fingers.  I'll have a HOW TO MAKE A BOW VIDEO for you next week.
