A Winter's Walk & An Evening Craft
Yesterday we woke up to a perfect winter morning (minus the snow), it was a wonderful clear sky with enough chill in the air that you could wrap up warm.
We decided to take a walk along the beach, whilst there I snapped a few photos, my camera is just a ‘click & point’, and I’m really chuffed with the photos I got.
Once we got back home it was time to bust out some crafting supplies!
One of my most favourite things about exchanging gifts, especially Christmas gifts, is wrapping things up.
The paper, decorative tape, bows, ribbon, accessories, tags ahhh, just wonderful isn’t it!
I have been known to take everything out a box / wrapping just to rewrap everything individually!
This year I’m going to go with parcel paper, ribbons and some homemade tags.
I’ve mentioned before that I was in to card making, which I’ve not done for an age, suffice to say I have a whole bunch of card making supplies which are looking rather lonely at the moment.
If you want to make some tags gather the following
Seasonal stamps and ink pads
Using the die cutter cut out a whole bunch of tags, any spare can be used for other crafts.
(You could use a template and cut out tags with a craft knife if you don’t have a die cutter)
Next, using the stamps and ink pads, add a sentiment to the lower half of each tag.
Once the ink is dry, add a blob of glue to the centre of an embellishment and adhere to the centre of your tag.
Allow to dry.
Once it is dry, take a length of twine, fold it in half, thread through the hole in the tag and loop the twine through itself, pull.
Repeat as necessary until you have enough tags for your gifts.
Aren’t they sweet?
Have you decided how you’re going to be wrapping your gifts this Christmas?
