Festive Fun

We were house bound today, as the boys school was closed due to the strikes regarding pensions, and I'd arranged for an engineer to arrive to fix our phone line, so we had some festive fun making a few things.

Oscar wanted to make some decorations for his school classroom and he put these cute snowmen together all by himself, even punched the sizzix snowmen dies!

Then we had a go at making a hanging bauble decoration, Oscar again cut the die shapes and stuck on the little red gems, mummy only helped with sticking it together and adding the satin bow!

I wanted to have a play around with some gift wrapping and this gorgeous WMS Holiday Ornaments stamp set was perfect. I created this gorgeous bow from a length of White Silky Crush ribbon, securing the tag and this cute jingle bell with red button twine.

Using the WMS Holiday Ornaments stamp set again, I wrapped a length of Red Satin ribbon around the gift tying a bow at the front, securing the tag and this tiny red bauble with red button twine.

Finally, I wanted to share these sweet little tags. I had an order to create some personalised jars so they can be filled and given as teacher presents at Christmas. I love how they turned out!

I usually make these type of jars up for the boys teacher presents and am considering have a go at making chocolate fudge to put in them!! Never made fudge before and may never make it again but will attempt some tomorrow - will share photos!

These are fabulous Leilly, I love the Scandinavian feel, and the bauble tags are wonderful! Love Oscars little snowmen too, what a great little classroom decoration!
