Christmas Fun with Xyron and Heidi Swapp!!

Good morning Xyron and Heidi Swapp fans!! I love this season. Seriously, I wait all year for Christmas to come and miss it once it's gone. I love the gifts, the tradition, and of course all of the fun that you can have with decoration and gift wrap. Today I'm going to share a little bit of both.

Meet our resident elf, Stella. She is the perfect foil for the fantastic papers and embellishments from Heidi Swapp's Believe line. I took three pieces of from the 12x12 Paper Pack and layered them all together 1/2" smaller than each other using my Xyron Mega Runner. The Color Magic Jumbo Pennants were each sprayed with a mix of Color Shine in both Chartreuse and Gold Lame.
To make the photograph pop, I added a Believe Banner Delight using the  Xyron's High Tack Adhesive Dots in 3/16".
I then punched out one of the Joy to the World sentiments from one of the sheets of the 12x12 Paper Pack, and added my journaling and faux stitching with a Signo pen. 
Lastly, I used Gold Lame Color Shine on the Color Magic Striped Alphabet. I love the little hashtag, and it works perfectly with the Instagram pic I used!
My second project using Heidi Swapp's Believe line is a decorative bow that I cut using my Silhouette.

Once I cut all of the pieces of the outside of the bow...
...I sprayed a second sheet with the Chartreuse Color Shine, then cut the base of each of pieces.
I ran each of the outside pieces through my Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker.
Once all of the outer pieces were attached to the second set of pieces, I attached them all with a long brad. See how the Color Shine on the inside of the bow covers the white paper?
Make sure that the brad is opened on the inside.
To create the banner that will wrap around the CD case, I cut a border, ran that through my Xyron 3" Sticker Maker, then attached that to a slightly larger version and attached it to the case.
Lastly, I used a few more of the High Tack Adhesive Dots in 3/16" to attach it to the case. 
Now it's ready for packing up a fun present!!
