Happy New Year

I hope you all had a great Christmas. I got the flu on Christmas Eve and spent the next three days in bed although I did manage to get up for Christmas Dinner. I hope the new year brings you good health and happiness with lots of time for stamping.
I haven't done much stamping as I have been busy planning my classes and workshops for this year.
The two items I have to show you are two of the items we made on my last Tuesday night class before Christmas. The first is a glass bauble. We stamped on the outside with with Staz-on, put some silver shred in the bottom and then stamped a snowflake on some acetate, rolled it up and put it inside the bauble suspended on some silver thread. It is a bit hard to see in the photo.
The second one is an origami wreath. It is made up of eight pieces of designer series paper (the one in the picture is retired) which are folded and then tucked into each other. There is no adhesive.
Although it is very easy to make, it was quite a challenge for me as I am not very good working from instructions and find it easier if someone shows me what to do. However I got there in the end.
Happy stamping
