I thought I’d share some of my latest Christmas makes with you. I’ve been spending as much spare time as I can adding to my Christmas card stocks and knits. And on Sunday I had a whole 3 hours to get making!
I explored my crafty stash and decided to use up some of the interesting bits and pieces I have acquired over the year.
I started with the Christmas wreaths I had saved from last years’ Christmas crackers. I had to make some new bows for some of them and do some other minor repairs, but they were lovely little embellishments for cards. I added them to some card blanks of varying dimensions and then finished the card off with some hand drawn holly and dots which I glittered. I think the wreaths work really well on the white backgrounds.
Next I went for the red bows that I’d saved from something else last year.
I again used a variety of white cards to add the bows to and made some very simple backgrounds – glitter gold star stickers and drawn and glittered snowflakes.
I then investigated the latest Christmas Goody Bag from Docrafts. It has loads of papers, card blanks and embellishments in. This one also had a number of Boofle products. Not being one to use little characters in my crafting very much, I thought I’d try something a little different for me.
The different papers in the bag are really lovely for Christmas. Quite traditional in colours, but they’re shiny. so it gives a lovely luxurious feel to any makes. I think they work really well with the recycled kraft cardstock . And Boofle is very cute.
Only 82 days until Christmas!!
