WendyB
Please email us your shipping information at doodlebugdesign.blog@gmail.com and put "Halloween Parade Pixies Winner." 

We have been having a ball all week long swapping product with Xyron. Have you seen the darling projects they've been featuring all week. If not, be sure to check out their blog. Also, we love giving away fun prizes, so be sure to scroll to the end of this post. Now for some holly jolly Christmas fun with our Home for the Holidays Pixies.



Christmas Tree Trio Card

Cut into pieces, Pixies can make just about any shape.  To make the Christmas trees, I trimmed green Pixies and adhered them to patterned paper and then cut out the shape.

I topped the biggest tree with a yellow star jewel and affixed a merry Christmas Doodle sticker near the bottom of the card.  Supplies used: Home for the Holidays collection,
Sprinkles and Pixies

Home for the Holiday Pixies
by Shellye McDaniel

Up next is a quick and easy idea for using the Pixies, while still creating a punch.

I used three different colors and attached them as a border.  To make things even easier, I made sure that the height of the patterned paper was the same as the Pixies...no trimming needed!  

I chose to use white sequins for the snow, but you could replace these with small snips of white Pixies. I'm looking forward to finding even more creative ways to incorporate these fun embellishments!

HOW TO WIN
We'll be giving away a set of the new Home for the Holidays Pixies and Toppers (shown above). Go over the Xyron Blog and then leave a comment HERE telling us what project today you like the best!
