Crate Paper’s Peppermint Collection at AC Digitals


Here’s the description of Crate Paper’s Peppermint Full Collection from the AC Digitals blog:  “The Peppermint Collection by Crate Paper is full of traditional holiday elements and patterns with a distressed trendy feel. It is perfect for documenting your precious memories while you drink some peppermint hot chocolate. This collection contains 2 paper packs and 3 element packs (each available for purchase separately).”  Click on the above collection image to be taken directly to the product pages at AC Digitals.

I’ve been wanting to make some 3D barn stars for my door this holiday season.  I used my Cricut to cut the stars at different nested sizes using prints from the Peppermint collection and textured cardstock from American Crafts Christmas Cardstock.  Since they were going to be outside enduring the winter elements, before putting them together (but after scoring them), I brushed a layer of matte mod podge on each of them, even the cardstock.  If you’d like to make some yourself, just google barn stars tutorial or 3D stars tutorial.  Also, there are some tutorials on Pinterest as well.  Happy decorating!
