Candy Cane Photo Stand

I am a guest DT at The Game this week. The challenge is called RED ROVER, RED ROVER - WINTER. The challenge is to create a winter creation showcasing the color RED. Since most of us are crafting holiday items anyway, this should be an easy one. Please join us!

TOP TIP - I made this photo holder from three candy canes. I used washi tape to hold them together but you could use clear tape or maybe even ribbon. There are so many ways to use this display -  photos, Christmas Cards or maybe your favorite recipe. Lots of possibilities!

My image is from Gecko Galz. I embellished the photo with rubber stamped and embossed silver snowflakes and added some sparkle with glitter and rhinestones.

I am entering this photo display in the following challenges:

Pile it on - embellishments
Top Tip Tuesday - #91 Christmas + Tip
Simon Says Challenge - snow flakes
Paper Play - #49 Christmas is coming
Stampin for the Weekend - let it snow
Broken Box Stock - #15 happy holidays
