Twelve Blogs Of Christmas...

Im really excited about this event... Over on ILWS we have organised a Christmas blog hop... Each of us in the hop have created some amazing Christmas Projects and shared them on our blogs. Each blog will have the '12 Blogs of Christmas' emblem which you just click on to take you to the next faberoonie stop on your travels where you will see more gorgeous projects. If you click the links on each blog (unfortunately due to illness there are only 11 blogs this time...Shhh dont tell!) eventually you will come full circle back to where you started, (Bit like the M25!) and your brain will be ready to explode with all the fabulousness you have just seen! Ha ha!

For those who have joined us from Debbi's Blog... WELCOME! Hope you are enjoying the inspiration...

So heres my little efforts...

Project 1.

Its all in the packaging!
Money is tight for us all this year so make the most of what you have... I found the templates (Anna Griffin) for the pillow box and the flowers hidden in my stash and decided to give it a go! Im lurving these!...


All made with Stampin' Up! (Bella Bleu) papers and cardstock (coz Ive got LOADS!!!) The bow is different but really easy. I tied 2 regular bows from ribbon, overlaid one across the other and tied with some silver elasic cord. I added some snowflake buttons from my stash and Ho Ho Ho!! There you go!


Just add some glitter and you are bling-i-licious baby!

Project 2.

My Christmas Survival Kit! How many times have you run out of cards 2 days before Christmas...? Lots! This box has 3 Christmas Cards and envelopes, 12 tags and of course CHOCOLATE!


This one is actually going to be a gift for someone (gosh I hope they dont read my blog!). Ive seen alot of these little boxes online recently so decided to try one for myself.. It was suprisingly easy! I simply measured the envelopes, chocolate and tags and after some sketching and some maths I had a box!

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US ON OUR BLOG TOUR... Your next stop on the tour will be lovely Jo who has a wicked sense of humour and makes some amazing things! Love ya Jo... CLICK HERE to be magically whizzed to her blog... (or click on the icon on the right.)

Please, please, please leave me some comments. Its always good to get some feedback and hear what people want to see from you! (Or not see as the case may be!)

Happy Hopping!
