Reverse Confetti December Blog Hop

Well, it's the eighth of the month, 
which means it's time for the Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog
and you should have made it here from the amazing Amy Sheffer's blog
It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. 
We have tons of inspiration for you to see using Reverse Confetti's fabulous products! 

Now, the Reverse Confetti DT was challenged a new project
as well as share our top three favourite Reverse Confetti projects from 2015!

First up, my new project...



I decided to get creative with my Reverse Confetti Confetti Cuts and felt
to make a couple of Christmas ornaments.

Let's start with the owl...



I started by diecutting his body using one of the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts.
Once this was cut, I ran it back through my diecutting machine to cut
the straight edge with the curved edge to make the top of my owl's head.
I used this same die a third time to cut the oval belly --
I just ran it through twice.
I used the little handle dies to diecut his wings and the geotag die
from Documented Confetti Cuts for his eyes.
For his beak, I diecut the end of the Arrow Confetti Cut and then
diecut that again with the geotag die to create the right shape.
Then, I stitched everything together using my sewing machine
and stuffed some batting inside to make him plump.


I cut out the fox with the same Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts and created the oval the same way, too.
This time, though, I cut the top of his head using the Office Edges Confetti Cuts.
I cut his tail with the same die as the owl's wings, the white around his eyes
using the triangle from Branch Out Confetti Cuts and the details of his ears and tail
using some Layered Snowflake Confetti Cuts.

Here are the dies I used:

 

 

  

Okay, now I'd like to share with your my favourite Reverse Confetti projects from 2015.
I had a hard time narrowing it down, but finally chose these three projects:

First up is the Shine Layout that I made for the May Release:
