Raise your hand if you have lots of Christmas themed papers, stickers, diecuts, punches, etc. Me! me, raising both my hands on my tippy toes! Christmas is the holiday I absolutely have no will power in collecting cute reindeer, santa, penguins, snowflakes etc! One way to show off all your beautiful holiday papers is to create a simple grid onto your 12 x 12 paper and your page becomes a beautiful Christmas quilt.
Score your 12 x 12 paper at 2 inch increments along one edge, rotate 90 degrees and score again in 2 inch increments creating an accurate grid of squares.
My example is meant to be displayed (which could then be added to my scrapbook album later). For some extra fun, I created peek-a-boo flaps at random places by using an exacto knife and using the grid as a cutting guide. These peeking elements can open to reveal photos or even a little thin chocolate mint treat as a fun way to count down Christmas.
As you can see, there is lots of opportunity to dig into your holiday stash to decorate your Christmas quilt!
Have a wonderful day!
