If you would like to decorate one with me I will be at Stampers Grove on Saturday 10th December from 11am till 1pm. Β  they are perfect for that last minute Christmas gift, you can paint/embelish , then fill them with a whole host of festive goodies, wrap up in cellophane and you have a perfect tailor made christmas gift!

Here is the one I made today, this would be perfect filled with fruit teabags, coffee, and homemade shortbread biscuits..

There are a lot of different things incorporated in this tray, I gilded the edges in gold leaf, Stamped and heat embossed the sides with embossing powder and lined the inside and sides with a gorgeous patterned paper.. the handles are bound in gorgeous twine

tray-2

I also took a picture outside, it is amazing how lighter it looks in natural lighting πŸ™‚

Christmas Candy Jars

I bought these 2 jars of Fruit Pastilles a couple of weeks back to put in the kids christmas stocking this year, but they looked rather plain, so I took them up to the shed this afternoon, altered the lids and created matching tags for them πŸ™‚

First up was the jar for my son John… He is 17 so I chose Tim Holtz Kraft Resist Christmas Memories Carstock

I used my fav Tag Die from Sizzix “Tags, scallop combo #2, and some picket fence distress stickles and also some stardust stickles.

I also added a little metal snowflake embelishment from Wild Orchid Crafts to finish the tag.

The I started on the second jar, this one is for my daughter Sarah πŸ™‚ made this one all sparkly, bright and cheery, just like her wee face πŸ™‚

The main feature on the lid is a styrofoam / polystyrene star painted with modpodge and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.. them decorated with glittery picks and berries

Then I made a matching tag, added a little bit of burlap and a gorgeous wooden embelishment from Wild Orchid Crafts

Thanks so much for popping in πŸ™‚ Β Sarah x

Seaglass & Roses Notepad…

I like to buy the cheap noteboooks from the supermarket and then give them a wee makeover πŸ™‚

They are inexpensive and once altered they make lovely gifts or even great stocking fillers for Christmas!

I made this one this afternoon, plus I have done a video tutorial, but it ran over the 15 minutes, so I need to learn how to edit videos or re-make it again πŸ˜€

Supplies List Used :-

  • Cheap Supermarket Notebook 207mm x 73mm
  • K & Co Seaglass Patterned Paper
  • 3 x Green tone Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Double Sided Tape
