antsy: adjective

Color me antsy with whatever was going to be for the number 11, I mean 11 of anything is a lot! And yes, you can split your projects up but I thought it would be more fun to use the larger number groups on my mini album ( the 10 buttons worked out so well  figured I'd see if I could keep it going! )...
and 11 turned out to be good.
Frosted Designs  - On the 11th Day Of Christmas
11 banner flags
I made the banner out of discontinued fabric samples that a friend had given me over a year ago, I swear I'll have fabric left over for the rest of my life! Especially if I use extreme small bits like I did for the banner.

Of course I had to make it 3 times harder by not only making the tiniest banner ever but also by sewing glass beads in between each piece....50 Shades of difficulty!

Bow Easy tool - ( made in the USA! )
Cricut - French Manor cartridge, p. 38, 1" ( used CCR to remove inside cuts )
Aleene's Tacky Glue
glass beads - recycled from a pillow case
Tim Holtz Idealogy Grunge paper ( for bird )

We have finished 3 weeks of Handmaking the Holidays and I hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed doing it for you.
You can visit Chrissy's blog for all the links if you missed any along the way.

I really have enjoyed seeing what you have made for Handmaking for the Holidays although I think you set yourself a very hard task for this No. 11, it is so tiny! But also really lovely! Hugs, Anne x

LOL! I do that, too! Make the project more difficult that it had to be. Turned out really cute, though. :)

I love the way the bird is holding the string in it's beak, clever idea! Sandee, you have been so kind to comment on my guest designer post over at Creative Imaginations, thanks so much for your support!

What a cool banner! I love the glass beads! You have a lot of creativity and patience to make such a gorgeous banner out of teeny tiny pieces! Thanks for joining us at Frosted Designs.

I love the banner, but are you insane? That must have been painstaking to make, emphasis on the PAIN. EEK! It is gorgeous though and worth the effort.
