Melissa Frances Home for the Holidays

Hi all!  If you know me, you know I downright adore Melissa Frances products.  They are always a joy and never a disapointment.  Of course I was thrilled to get the newest Home for the Holidays papers and snowflake embellishments in my Mystic Paper kit for November.
I love the sweet images on the paper so I decided to highlight them on a Wreath/Advent project.
I painted the chipboard snowflakes cream and then glimmer misted with Crushed Shells.  Gorgeous, and oh so Melissa Frances, shabby effect.

 Then,  from the soft red houndstooth and pale blue snowy patterned paper, I cut and folded 24 tiny boxes (until my fingers and arms went numb, ouch!).

I used Melissa Frances Mica flakes for some dazzle.  And of course most of my projects call for some crepe paper streamer ruffles.  I distressed everything with Tattered Rose ink.  Perfectly soft with these papers.

I dangled a bigger box for the 25th in the center of the wreath.

And this is the finished Wreath/Advent project.

Be sure to hop over to Sheri and Jenna's blogs and see their projects too!
