Joy-ful craftiness

 Ok, so I am on a serious crafting streak. Here's my latest.

It didn't take long to make and it's really pretty self explanatory.

So here's what you need:
Christmas-y card stock cut into 2-3 inch strips
{You'll need 2 for each letter of your word}
Christmas-y card stock
{cut into 1 large and 1 small circle for each letter}
Hot glue gun/sticks
Wooden Letters
{or you can print out letters too!}

1. Fold your card stock strips accordion style.
2. Staple the ends together.
3. Press it flat.
4. It may try to pop back up on you...
5. Place something heavy on the top if this is the case.
6.Cut your circles.
7.Add some glue around the edges and dip it in glitter.
{or you can use glitter glue}
8. Use a hot glue gun to attach your center circles.
9. Mount this to your larger circle with a hot glue gun.
10. Use your hot glue gun to attach your letters.
11. Voila!
12.  I made a few extra to liven up last years project...

Remember my Paper wreath
Here it is with a new little twist...
   You can use any word really and change it up for any holiday or special occasion.  You can also add these little do-dads to anything you already have in assorted sizes and colors.
The possibilities are endless...So have fun with this one.
