Ribbon Resource & DCWV: Christmas Craft Ideas

The Ribbonistas are hopping with DCWV this week to showcase some great craft ideas!
I was sent the Christmas Village Stack- it is crazy cute! It has loads of houses and stores to cut out and embellish, as well as cute punch out embellishments, reindeer and glitter trees!
I started with this fun house!

You're definitely going to want to click on the images to look closer! 
I've used the pearlized string beads to outline the windows and roof line- they really look like lights on the house in person!
The 1/4" red adhesive scallop border adds a fun detail to the house!

This guy needed a red nose- he received one by adding one 3/8" red mini pom to his nose!

This glitter tree is so pretty- hard to capture the sparkle in pics, but it's there! I added more of the pearlized string beads, as well as the gold metallic string- wrapping them both around the tree. Of course we needed a topper too! I used one star from the 1.5" silver star banner and glued one star from the 3/4" gold satin star ribbon to the center. I did the same on the back so this tree looks great from either side!

I added more of the red scallops to the back of the house, as well as creating a wreath using the 3/16" ivory wired beads, then wrapping with more of the gold metallic string. A 1/4" red silk bow finishes it off! Do you like that bit of white tulle 'smoke'? I think it adds a fun touch!

I love how much detail the ribbon/beads that I used add, yet it didn't take a lot of any type! The gold metallic string and pearlized string beads may be a bit over a yard each since I wrapped them around the tree too- everything else is well under a yard!

Ok, we've got a week of fun, and of course chances to win some goodies of your own!
Not one chance- but THREE!!! Three prize packs made up of goods from DCWV and Ribbon!!
Lots of ways to win- commenting is one! Check out the details at Ribbon Resource!!
