How to Use a Sled to Celebrate Fantastic Winter

After Christmas the walls are bare and it's time to learn how to use a sled to celebrate fantastic winter. Sledding is one of my favorite childhood recollections. Grandma's driveway and a good runner sled were the perfect recipe for learning to fly!
~ Winter ~

Step 1. Disassemble the wood sled and trace the runners and slats
onto the back of the Winter Snowflakes Cardstock

 Step 2. Paint the sled pieces with flat acrylic paint, leave to dry.

Step 3. Cut the paper pieces and glue onto the top and sides of the sled. I used ScraPerfects Best Glue Ever to be certain the paper would bond with the wood and not leave wrinkles.

 Step 4. Reassemble the sled using the same glue, clamp and leave to dry.
Step 5. Assemble a variety of embellishments using ScraPerfects Best Glue Ever to adhere layers to each other. This is particularly important when using glitter stock.

 The Winter label is cut from the Winter Words Glitter Cardstock and backed with Blue Robin Glitter Cardstock.
The punched snowflakes are centered with Silver Dew Drops.
The larger circles and snowflakes are punched from Blue Glitter Chipboard.
The fluted glitter circles are topped with a smaller circle punched from the Snowflake Cardstock,
and the blue glitter snowflakes are topped with Winter Snowflakes Glitter Chipboard and a brad.
