"Christmas Wishes"

I wanted to share some of my mini projects that were featured on the Bella Blog today.

I love Bog Dies for my Big Shot and this bag is one of my favourites. It is the perfect size for small gifts such as jewellery, gift cards or candies too !! I am using these for Em and Alex's teacher Christmas gifts this year....they're going to love their holiday drink cards from Starbucks.....I hope :))

Christmas Wishes: Borders, Cute Cuts.

This box is another die that I love to use for all occasions. It is so fun to pretty up with paper and ribbon and holds bite size treats such as homemade chocolates and little holiday cookies too! After wrapping a patterned paper strip around the box I added a border sticker and cut up a word sticker strip to add a sweet sentiment to the front of the box. The small circle alphas were the perfect size for the little gift tag.

Each year I like to create a few new handmade ornaments and I love how these ones came together. When I saw these plain white shapes at Ikea I knew I could change them up and make them the perfect addition to our tree.

After choosing the paper for the bird, I traced the shape for both sides, cut them out, adhered them to the chipboard base using quick dry glue and sanded the edges. Because the patterned paper is a heavier weight than what was used in the original piece, I reduced the length and width of the wings to be able to 'spread' the wings and have them stay open.

I then punched a hole in the bottom and used mini jump rings to add stickers from the bottom. I really had fun making these and hope to find a minute before Christmas to make a few more as gifts :)

Christmas Wishes: Christmas Love, Gifts Galore, North Pole, Miniatures stickers

I hope this finds you all having a great start to your week.....Talk soon.
