Welcome to the Third Annual Handmade Holidays blog hop!! The best crafters, designers, and makers have come together to create and share  a series of thoughtful, handmade gifts for the holidays during this 3 day blog hop. Our goal is to inspire you to create something from the heart this holiday season as well as share how to use our products in fun, innovative ways. We intend this hop to serve as a resource to you for this holiday season and for years to come.

I am so excited to be part of day #3 of this fantastic hop! I will be sharing a Room Decor DIY for all you teens and its okay if you make it and your older. It’s a really fun craft.

First pull out your Fantastic Big Shot. I love mine and they have the best dies as well! Today I am using this Flower and Leaf die. I ran the die 3 times with 3 colors, two shades of red, and green. I took the top part of the flower in green, which would of got threw away and embossed it with White powder!

After you piece it together, it should look something like this.

Now you will want to take a simple piece of cork, any size you feel will work is fine. I believe mine is 12×12. I like this size! I’m also working with Shape Tape by FrogTape! It is new and I love it. I actually used it in another project over on A Little Craft In Your Day. The shape tape comes in all different patterns, but I am using the chevron pattern. I placed two lines of the Shape Tape onto the cork and then placed a regular piece of Painters tape at the top. I really didn’t want to do the whole Cork a chevron pattern. I then applied a nice christmas red color of paint with a foam brush- it worked great!
