Sequins are the New Black!

If you go in any card shop (well, maybe not any), but you will probably find Christmas cards that have been made using sequins.
So, dig out your box that is in the back of your craft cupboard somewhere (you know the one, that has stuff in it that you think you'll never use again), grab some tweezers and start having a play with your sequin collection!
To make these, I have drawn the basic shape with pencil (OK, I used a stencil) and just filled in the space to make the Christmassy shape.

Once you have got your positioning you can then start sticking down.  I got some embellishment glue when I was in Germany, but you can probably find some on 'the' auction site.

You could use them to make decorations, tags or cards.

It is also something that you may like to get your children involved in during the Christmas holidays.

Thanks for looking and for any comments,
See you tomorrow,
