Christmas is quickly approaching, and if you are like me you still have a ton of stuff to do. So, with 9 days to go I know I don’t have time for a big project. This little holly leaf pattern is quick and easy, and the embellishing possibilities are endless. Use them to decorate your packages, add them to napkin rings to adorn your holiday table, pin one to your jacket to add a festive touch … the list goes on and on. And of course, I love when you share your photos of your finished projects with me. I can’t wait to hear all the original ideas you come up with!
