Materials

  • Black cardstock
  • Scraps of patterned cardstock
  • Image of a holiday silhouette clipart
  • Embellishments (snowflakes, crystals, whatever works with your image)
  • Utility knife
  • Cutting mat
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue

Step 1:

Choose a holiday clipart image and print it onto black cardstock. Try to choose an image that has simple clean lines and that will be clearly recognizable when cut out.

Step 2:

Use a utility knife to cut the image out of the black cardstock. Remember that you are keeping the outline of the image and all the centre pieces will be discarded.

Step 3:

Cut a piece of patterned paper to the same size as the black cardstock that your image is on. Arrange other pieces of scrap patterned paper to create an interesting design. I did three strips of different patterned paper for my design.

Step 4:

Glue the black cardstock with your cut out image onto the patterned paper.

Step 5:

Embellish your picture with snowflakes, crystals or other items that complement your image.

Display your picture in a frame to give it a finished look.
