Hello crafty blogland! Hope everyone's doing well and looking forward to a great relaxing weekend. My creation is using a fab template from Nikky's Paper Boutique cd Vol 2 Creative Christmas...absolutely wonderful practical creations included in this one with medium and large templates, super for print, cut and stick projects which is exactly what I've done here. Used Fiskars sunburst punch for a bit of decor, X Cut snowflake punch with sequin, red/white twine, tag stamped was free with a mag and some posh ribbon to tie together. I thought some home made cheese straws would be ideal to fit in this or even the good old celebration sweets filled up to the top. I'm sure I'll be making some more in due course.

Challenges which are 10...Polka Doodles 'anything christmas but a card' as are Charisma, Craft My Life, Crafty Creations 'make it yourself', Crafty Hands 'anything goes' as are Simon Says 2nd, Created with love, Crafty Ribbons, Winter Wonderland 'blue & white....there's a splash of red there', and Allsorts 'christmas cheer'. I'm hoping to make a few more container type gifts so come back for more inspiration.
