Rick Rack

I love Rick-Rack! There is just something about it that says handmade. Usually we use it in a straight continuous line. But, what happens if we cut it apart? For some of my Christmas Cards this year I did just that... cut and cut and cut in the center of every other "bump" (or are those ricks??)

By staggering them I was able
to create what I think is a very charming Christmas Tree. It takes 10 ricks per tree. I kind of like the plain, simple country look of my card- but, there is a part of me tempted to decorate the tree. Maybe some sequins? Or maybe some packages under the tree. My youngest son thinks it needs a star at the top of the tree. For now I am content with keeping it simple.

Sometimes less is more!
