I have had the fabulous skate die cut and been wanting to play with them because they bring back fond memories of the heating house where we went in to have hot chocolate after skating on the lake.
We always anxiously awaited the light on the house to change to green when it meant that it was safe to skate on the lake.
I cut multiple layers to my skates to achieve a dimensional pair of skates which can be attached to a package and then hung on the tree as reminder of the gift.
I cut a pair of cardboard skates, metallic skates (2 pair) and white cardstock (2 pair).
After I cut them I then stamped the floral pattern on the white cardstock and sponged the edges.
I then assembled them so I had front and back covered with the stamped outsides with a tiny hoop from ribbon on each skate. To finish them I took two needles and white thing twine and sewed up the two pieces together. I added a few Christmas Bells to dangle on the skates and tied them together.
