Christmas Wrapping has Started...

My obsession this year was brown paper & bronze leaf for Christmas wrapping but I was thwarted by my own planning. Being unable to find bronze leaf close to me, the shipping on what I could find would push my preparations so I changed tack.

Buttons & stencils have formed the basis of my wrapping this year. Brown paper, bright twine and buttons look simple and pretty

I also added some silver jingle bells to tags to add that Christmassy feel

MULTI-COLOURED TWINE 

ADDED JINGLE BELLS!

I've managed to make a few more cards which I will post below

Christmas Cards

It has been a very long time since my last post. My job (s) have kept me busy in the past few months and it has been hard to find time to blog.

I did manage to take some time off this week and focus on making some Christmas cards. I've really enjoyed this and I hope to make some more in the coming weeks.

The origins of these card designs were from a pin on Pinterest plus I found this excellent box of card stock & envelopes in TKMaxx

CARD STOCK

I picked up some packs of buttons in a local craft shop and I was away!

LOVE THE WAVY RED BUTTON ON THE RIGHT

SOME ARE MORE CHRISTMASSY THAN OTHERS


I am looking to expand on this more in the future but I hope everyone who gets one likes it!
