I used a kraft tag and cut away the string. I covered with My Minds Eye papers, then punched a reinforced the hole for the string using my crop a dile and a gold eyelet. I used bakers twine as my tie. I then used a 3D image I had in my christmas stash and added the Christmas Owls ribbon and strips of gold gems to embellish.
Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with my creation for day 7 of our Days of Christmas event at Crafty Ribbons :-)
For this card I used Crafty Ribbons Deck the Halls ribbon found here, Papers and James the Bear stamp from Lili of the Valley, Promarkers, Deco Art glitter, Nestabilities, Wooden die cut snowflakes, gems, papermania greeting and some lace.
I coloured James with Promarkers and added glitter accents on the white areas of his hat with Deco art glitter. I then matted him onto kraft cardstock. I made a kraft cardstock panel to fit on the card and then covered this with the LOTV papers and the deck the halls ribbon as my border. I added some lace to soften the bottom of the card and added a sentiment over this. I placed James in the centre then added my die cut snowflakes which I further embellished using pearls and gems.
Good morning everyone! Hope you are well :-) I am here with my DT creation for our 'Penguin Pals' challenge over at Crafty Ribbons!
I have been making little christmas gifts for friends and so I had the idea to alter a lovely plain glass jar I found so I used Crafty Ribbons Penguin Pals digi printed onto Crafty Computer Paper's inkjet waterslide transfer paper, and ribbon to match from the Penguin Pals range here.
I started by sizing the Penguin in serif software and printing it onto the special paper. I then varnished the paper twice and left for 48 hours.
To use I immersed the image in water for 30 seconds, and then carefully applied to my jar. It helps if the jar is a little wet itself where you want the image to be because that way the image moves easily if it needs repositioning. I then tied ribbon onto the top of the jar, and filled it with yummy chewits!
Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments!
I used a kraft tag and cut away the string. I covered with My Minds Eye papers, then punched a reinforced the hole for the string using my crop a dile and a gold eyelet. I used bakers twine which I added a bell charm to and tied it shut on the other side of the tag so it moves but not too much :-) I then used a 3D image I had in my christmas stash and added the Christmas Owls 'Joyeux Noel' ribbon.
Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! I am here with one of my little handmade presents for my friends :-)
I started with a polystyrene heart, twine, Home for Christmas ribbon and bow, gems, eye pin for jewellery making, split ring and thin red ribbon.
I used double sided tape to affix the twine to the heart. I began at the bottom-winding the twine around in a circle and moving up from there. I dabbed the start with some glue to make sure it would stay put. I wound it to the top until I couldnt wrap it round both sides anymore-I then wound twine on one side of the heart, cut then did the same on the other. I dabbed both ends with glue.
I put glue on an eye pin I use for jewellery making and plunged this into the top of the heart so I could hang it well. I then added a split ring and tied ribbon from this.
I then decorated my heart simply by using Home for Christmas ribbon and a bow, adding a little gem to the centre of the ribbon.

Good morning everyone! Hope you are well :-) I am here with my DT creation for A Little Bit Crafty this time. I made a masculine Thank you card-I find men can be quite difficult to create for but these papers from Bo Bunny (I think they are called timepiece!) lend themselves well to masculine creations. I paired these papers with a vintage typewriter digi and a sentiment printed onto cardstock on paper to emulate paper coming out of the typewriter. I also curved this 'paper' around my craft knife for a realistic shape and then placed 3D foam tape under the centre of the paper so it sticks up like its coming from out of the typewriter.
I used a kraft tag and cut away the string. I covered with My Minds Eye papers, then punched a reinforced the hole for the string using my crop a dile and a gold eyelet. I used bakers twine as the tie. I then used a 3D image I had in my christmas stash and added the Christmas Owls ribbon and gems as embellishments.
