Tumble Dried Snow

Hello peeps :D


I've always been a big recycler and this has inevitably spilled out into my crafting. Before I throw anything away I always try and think of a crafty use for it (although this does lead to storage problems!)

Every time I tumble dry my clothes I think what a nice texture the tumble-drier sheets have, so I've finally got around to recycling one - I've used it here as snow. 

I tore it in half, which made it lovely and wispy, and then wrapped the ends around a square of card to hide the adhesive (I used tape).  I layered up my topper onto grey and red card and slotted it in between the two 'snow' layers. I've added little white pom-poms to represent a pile of snowballs and embellished with a few snowflakes and gems.

The sentiment is made using the Christmas Wishes stamp set by Lili of the Valley. 
The image is from the Furry Christmas Art Pad but is also available as a stamp - and you can currently get either of them for HALF-PRICE on the LOTV site. Whoop whoop!
