This year, my present/card combo is a bit hit-and-miss. Not only am I generally a bit of a scrooge when it comes to spending money at the festive time of year, this year I had the added bonus of a move overseas in the very near future (January) so I really needed to do some stash busting.

My presents were all wrapped up using any left over papers from previous year (they are all plain colour rolls so some will get red, black, purple, gold or silver) plus any ribbon (fabric or foil) I could find. But my cards required a little more thought.

Out came the multitude of spray cans, gold star confetti and origami paper I own. Eight hours (or three DVDs) later, this is what I came up with.

I layered dripped spray (in white, silver, copper and dark blue) over randomly place stars on some green card I had bought last year (it was a hugh box of 50 A6 cards plus envelopes), then I had to origami some 25 trees using all the pretty origami paper I could find. Luckily I had enough...just! Wink

You would think that got rid of a lot of materials, but no, there is *so* much more to go... Roll Eyes As always, comments and criticism most appreciated. Happy Holiday Crafting! Grin

These are very cute. Depending on what and how much stash busting you're trying to do, you could always donate. Whatever, there has to be someone looking who could use your resources. Smiley
