Here It Is - As Promised!

I had sooooo much fun creating this! The coat hooks that I showed here are now a fabby plaque for hanging up Christmas stockings (we took the fireplace out last year!) I've used the fabby Sugarplum Paisley page kit, fabric flowers, rub ons and buttons, all by Daisy D's. See that large poinsettia? It's one of the ones that I was talking about here - & the lace is the odd scrap I mentioned here.
Anyway, all the papers were inked up with plenty of black ink - this is the one I prefer - I covered the whole thing with green paisley & then attached the strip of snowman paper - I tore the edges so that the white core was not visible. The lace is threaded with a strip of plaid paper & attached with DST - I trimmed a 'v' over each screw hole so the lace didn't snag when re-attaching the pegs. I've sandwiched a small flower between each peg & the board & then added small poinsettia & snowflake rub ons to the top of each one. The tag cluster is a large chipboard tag (I die cut my own) decorated with papers and rubs, the ampersand is a cardstock sticker (I doodled the edges to look like stitching and the other tags are from the die cut sheet. I journaled 'Dear Santa please stop here, I've been very good this year, love from Auryn' over 2 tags ('Santa' is a rub on), threaded with a thin plaid paper strip and then attached through the bottom hole in the ampersand. A tiny strip of the lace is knotted through the tag hole & then the tag cluster is attached between the first and second pegs. Finally, the poinsettia is attached in position.
