Sweet Gifts


Sorry for not being around much lately, but I've been so busy at work and getting ready for Christmas too!!!  I promise to be around more in the New Year.

Anyway, having told you all how busy I've been, I've just got time for a quick post to show you these last minute Christmas Gifts I've made - what do you think?

I made the boxes following this fabulous tutorial.

Some close ups.

I stamped my Magnolia images using Memento Black Ink and coloured them with my Copic Markers. I used gold glitter on their wings and Vintage Christmas Flower Soft for the wreath and Polar White Flower Soft on Tilda's coat and hat.

On the back I've used Spellbinders Create-A-Flake and a brad to make snowflakes.

I used some florist's cellophane and ribbon to wrap Roses chocolates.
I cut a Nestie Long Deckle Rectangle from silver card and folded it to make the tags.

I am entering these into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Free For All
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
Saturday Challenge - Last Minute Gifts
Simon Says - Merry Christmas
The Pink Elephant - Winter and/or Christmas

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

These are so cute! I know what you mean re: far to busy! I am having withdrawal symptoms from Craftitis!
A very Merry Christmas to you Penni and all your family, I hope your feline babies get some turkey - I know ours will - in fact they will sit and watch it cook!
All the best
