Make a paper kaleidoscope! These holiday Flextangles are irresistible.
For today’s project I took the most popular project on my blog Flextangles and turned it into a holiday craft!
This project was created for Sakura of America and I used their Gelly Roll pens on colorful card stock to make the holiday designs pop!
These would make a lovely handmade gift for someone special.
