Crepe Paper Pretties

I have some super-exciting crafty news - and a giveaway - to share in the very near future. 
But first a hint... the thing I'm excited about came in a box to my door and I'm giving one away to you so you too can get a very AWESOME box delivered to your door. 


In other news, this is on my work desk right now:

My friend Karen asked if I could make her a crepe paper ornament.
Of course, I said yes. She's irresistible.
So I made it in my favorite colors and further explored making flowers with puffy paint. 
(tutorial to come)

If you want to make your own ornament, I did a tutorial back in December. 
You can see it HERE
