Phew.... I think I'm nearly done!
The decs are up, the presents are wrapped and all that's left is the dreaded food shopping!
Merry Christmas to my brilliant teamies at Crafty Emma's and Totally Papercrafts - and also to my followers and those that take a little time to leave me a comment - I appreciate all your support.
Wishing you all health and happiness for 2012.
Here's a last minute gift I made for a friend.
This had me swearing - I can tell you, and several attempts ended up in the bin!
I started by making an insert, large enough for my mug and reindeer - using a nestie oval to cut a piece for the reindeer to sit in, and a nestie circle for the mug.Then I made a shallow box around the insert, and stapled a piece of card to the back of the box, with a nestie oval handle.
The card box doesn't really support the weight of the mug, so I wrapped the whole thing in cellophane to make it easier to carry.
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo. My line is Ribbon/Twine, Punches/Die Cuts, Multifold.
My Mum's Craft Shop - Anything GoesTop Tip Tuesday - Anything Christmas and my Top Tip is "buy 2 chocolate reindeer, one to put in the box and one to eat whilst you are trying to make it". Ha Ha! Only kidding ladies :-)
