Christmas in July Altered Ribbon Spool

Happy Christmas in July everyone!  July is a great time to sit down a do a few Christmas projects to get a head start when you aren't rushed during all the festivities in December.  For this project a ribbon spool I had on my desk and ready to throw away was rescued!!!  Look how adorable.  I just tore it apart and recovered the cardboard with paper.  The house is a Recollection die from Michaels, the Gingerbread man is a piece of felt from trim I was gifted.

The peppermint in the front is a Martha Stewart punch.  The trees are from Aliexpress.  They are a set of three sizes.  I used the medium and the tall.  This was so much fun to make.  I want to make more of these for gifts.  I won't be throwing away those ribbon spools anymore...lol

Happy Crafting friends.  I will have more to share with you for Christmas in July as well as some other projects that I have been working on.  See you soon!
