'Christmas Wall Hanging' by Narelle

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Narelle has created an amazing Christmas wall hanging to share today, I hope you enjoy it.

1.     Cut: 4 pieces of chipboard 12x12cm,  4 pieces of paper 15x15cm (to cover the chipboard squares) and  4 pieces of patterned paper 11cm x 11cm (to go on the back).
2.     Trim the corners from the 15x15 squares, and using double sided tape, wrap around the chipboard square, then cover the back with the 11x11cm square of paper.

3.    Use a paper piercer to poke 2 holes on the bottom of the top square, 2 holes top and bottom of the middle two squares, and 2 holes on the top of the bottom square.  Take care to ensure that all the holes are lined up so that they can be joined together straight.
4.    Use a needle to thread the MME 12 days of Christmas twine through the pairs of holes to join the hanging together, tying each loop in a knot at the back of the project.  (put something such as an icy-pole stick between the tiles to ensure even spacing)

 5.    Add a hanging loop of MME Felt Ric Rac to the back of the top tile, using a strong adhesive such as Pritt Gel, and add two “tails” at the bottom from the RicRac.
 6.    Decorate each tile with the chipboard embellishments.  Use the Nestabilities circle die to cut your 10x15cm photo to fit inside the circle frame.
7.    Embellish the chipboard pieces with the rhinestones and pearls from the MME Rhinestones pack.
8.    Add words using a self-adhesive alphabet such as Thickers.

9.    Hang up and enjoy!
