What a year! So much has changed in 2015 - we've had an amazing year of growth and excitement here at Craft Smith, and we have so many fun things lined up for 2016 already that we can barely wait. Thank you so much for coming on this ride with us - 2016 is going to be even better!

In the meantime, for our last post of the year - it's gotta be metallics again. Celebrating the New Year is the ultimate perfect opportunity to get all sparkly. Besides, you know it's really New Year's Eve when the glitter starts to come out! We think this mixed-metallic "Happy New Year" banner will be perfect over our appetizer table - or maybe above the bubbly?

I used our Craft Smith Gold Foil paper pad, and the Metallic Foil paper pad and some sheets of gold glitter cardstock.  The rosettes are foil, and I think they look so cute glued onto the triangle glitter cardstock shapes! 

Another way to sparkle things up is to make your own wine or champagne bottle labels. If you're intimidated by the idea of having to design something, don't be! The trick is to use sparkly paper, and then anything looks fun - if you've got good handwriting, that will look great too. These would be perfect for a hostess gift! 

So whether you're out on the town, hosting a party, or even just toasting in the New Year from the comfort of your couch, these crafts are a fun and festive way to usher in 2016.

Happy New Year everyone – stay safe, and we'll see you in 2016!
