Let's get "carried" away with Debra!

Here's an adorable project from DT Member, Debra!  I love the button swag, super cute!  Let's see what she had to say about her project!


Webster's Pages "Waiting for Santa"

Bazzill smooth green, chili red, and black

red satin ribbon, red and white baker's twine, buttons, gold Viva Pearl Pen, gold spray paint


Save a cardboard drink holder from your next trip to Sonic. Spray with gold paint.

Cut four black panels 4" x 8". Trim if necessary so that a thin gold edge shows all around. Layer red and plaid panels on top, cutting each 1/4" shorter and narrower.

Cut a scalloped circle approximately 4" in diameter. Cut a green circle slightly smaller. Embellish with gold Viva pen and set aside to dry.

Cut six holly leaves - I hand cut these but use a punch if you have one.

String buttons on the twine. Tie ends in bows and use pop dots to attach at top of container. Add holly leaves.

Attach the folded paper wreath with pop dots. Tie the twine through a red button and attach with a pop dot. Add holly leaves.

Thanks, Debra!  This little holder is super fun and what a great way to use something that you can get for free!  We all love that!
We'll be back tomorrow with another DT Member's project!

This is such a cute project. How many times we get drink holders, and just don't know what to do with them. Great idea Debbie. I love the buttons.
