Christmas Bits and Pieces

Merry Christmas everyone!


Love my Christmas baubles - I think I like this pic of them all on the table better than the actual tree!  Anyway, while I'm procrastinating from doing the last little bits and pieces for Christmas - thought I'd share a few more Christmas gift and card ideas with you. 

First up a little gift and card combo for a friend.  Wanted to make it a bit extra snazzy. 


Thought of making a box of some sort but somehow mine always look better in my head than in real life!  I think I'm not quite precise enough, bit of a line things up by eyeball with projects that sort of evolve as they're being created and that doesn't quite work for boxes.   So I grabbed a tin that used to hold felt flowers and blinged that up instead.

Can you see the snowflakes on top?  They're from Snow Swirled, stamped in Versamark then clear embossed, with a rhinestone centre to finish.


Open the lid for some goodies.  It did have 3 Lindt chocolate balls but then the lid wouldn't shut.  What a pity - I was forced to eat them and find a slightly less tall chocolate!  Ah the sacrifices. 


And some coordinating packages inside.  I've used up my stash of that gorgeous DSP that was in our November special.  (I forget the name of it now.) 

Here's a few pics of the matching card.


Here's a couple of slightly simpler versions of this card.  I love my punches when I've got a few cards to make (and double so when it is late December!!)   This one is the Curly Label Punch. 


Hmm getting to be a long post isn't it.  Have we got time for one more gift pack?? 

Once again I've used that DSP whose name I forget.  It is almost all gone now.  I'm usually a terrible hoarder so am rather glad to see me using up some of my special things! 


My Big Shot came in handy for the Fancy Favour box and the Pillow Box packages.  I had to cut one Pillow Box in half and pop a belly band on it to expand it so it'd fit the contents.  The Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and Antique Brads came in handy too.


Well that better do us for today.  Time for me to go do some last minute wrapping and gift tag making, and perhaps even the dishes.   If you're having a cuppa at the computer tomorrow I'll be back to show you a few Christmas card ideas using photos.  I love to pop a pic of the kids on some of my cards - my great aunts especially love these ones. 

Hope you are having a lovely day!

Cheers,  Sue
