Frugal Finds: Leftovers from Christmas

Christine, Carolina, and Cathy are back today with a frugal finds feature on using some leftovers from Christmas.  Dig thru that stash of yours, you never know what you might come up with!
Practical Scrapper Christine decided to play with tinsel and see what she could come up with.  She laid down a whole bunch of tacky glue on her heart and then laid rows of tinsel down.  Afterwards she trimmed the edges.  She also found there were spots she had to give it a haircut :) to make it all lay correctly.

This year I decided to make Christmas jammies for the whole family, but I only started sewing a month ago, so I bought WAYYYYYYY too much fabric. Enough to make not only jammies but cushion covers, banners, and now create fabric hearts for my layout (the brownish hearts are made from Santa's beard!!!).

I picked up a box of these snowflake ornaments last year, a box of 12 for a $1.00.  They are super light weight, thin and glittery...perfect for all types of paper crafting!

Another tinsel card from Christine...she tried out just layering it at the bottom of the card.
