Flaky Gifts

 

Hello – so nice of you to drop in 🙂

Today I want to show you some giftbags I made for my girlfriends. We usually give each other Christmas presents, but this year is different due to different circumstances, so most of them are skipping it this year. Well that doesn’t stop me from giving something to them! So I made the following giftbags:

This giftbag is the one from Bird’s SVGs Home for Christmas SVG Collection. I used Maja patterned paper “I wish”, “Joyous Winterdays” and “Vintage Frost Basics” and Best Creation Glitter cardstock in white. For the handle I used a thick hemp cord.

The following bags are the same giftbag but I changed the snowflake in the middle. I used the freebie snowflakes and simply made an offset of the flake and welded it to a circle. Might take a bit of trying but you’ll get the hang of it in no time. I use Silhouette Cameo for cutting.

This bag is made from Danish Riddersholm patterned paper “The Day Before” and some shimmery paper from my stash.

This bag is also made from Riddersholm paper and shimmery paper 🙂 I also want to mention that I altered the snowflake a tiny bit by adding some circles.

This bag is made from Maja “Vintage Frost Basic” paper and glitter POW paper from AC.

The same goes for this beautiful bag 🙂

Finally for this bag I used “Joyous Winterdays” from Maja Design and the snowflake is made from self-adhesive glitter paper from Artemio.

These bags are so awesome for gift giving but can also be used as luminaries 🙂

That’s it for today 🙂 Stay tuned for the gift inside the bags coming up early next week 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think of the bags ❤

 

 

 

Christmas Is Nigh…..

….or at least Dec. 1st. is coming up real fast! Therefore I decided to make the gorgeous Gingerbread House Advent Calendar from Bird’s cute Countdown to Christmas SVG Collection

As you properbly know, I love color and I just had to add some to the Gingerbread House. So I decided to use the “Milk & Cookies” Collection from Doodlebug Design and as I was having trouble deciding which of the papers to use, the solution fell literally in my lab – the collection has a paper with all the countdown numbers on it 😀 How lucky and easy is that????

The Gingerbread House itself is made from (hold on….) 25 pieces of brown AC Cardstock and 3 or 4 white pieces. I added some icy Stickles Glitter Glue to the roofs and the icicles. I used different colored glitter brads as handles and finally I inked all the drawers with a white ink pad to make the stand even more out.DSC_0018

I did also add a few Sugarplums Sprinkles also from Doodlebug on the front door of the House which happens to be the 24th – Christmas Night here in Denmark where we celebrate Christmas and not on the 25th 😉

The construction of this Countdown Gingerbread House is sheer genius and it’s very easy to put together even though it might take a night or two of you time as there are lots of pieces to assemble. Just remember to watch Bird’s tutorial video, which you find on the product page 🙂

Now this house could stand alone, but I still thought it needed a little extra something, so I made the Tree Luminaries from Bird’s Home for Christmas SVG Collection:

For these trees I also used the Milk & Cookies Collection from Doodlebug Design and added some Icy Stickles Glitter Glue dots in strategic places to give them more shine 😉 The trunks are made from AC Cardstock that I embossed with a basket patterned embossing folder and added some Bronze Age Metallique Wax from Prima to make the pattern stand out.

Here’s a picture of the House and trees together. I really hope you like this project – I am totally in love with it ❤
