The challenge this week at The Pixie Cottage is to create A LAST MINUTE GIFT OR CARD. As usual, we have a theme and a sketch for you, so you can use either or both.
This is the sketch from Katie.
I decided to make a last minute gift using this fab idea for a sweetie bag that I found over on the Craft Barn blog - link here. It was really quite easy to make and looks great when finished.
I have used two stamps from the Pixie Cottage Collection - To Santa from Buffy for the front of the bag and Unfroggetable Winter for the sweets bag topper. Aren't they such fun images. I was going to put some candy canes in the bag but they were too big so I used jelly beans instead (love these)!!.
Cardstock - 12" x 12" Pearlised card from stash.
DP and decorative strips - from stash
Medium - Promarkers.
Glitter and ribbon - from stash.
Wooden glittery snowflakes - Hobbycraft.
Jellybeans - from Tesco!!!
I hope you will join in with this challenge - we all need those last minute gifts, don't we. If you are not feeling that adventurous, you can of course choose to just make a card using the gorgeous sketch. Either way, you will be in with a chance of winning two stamps of your choice from The Pixie Cottage Collection.
Hugs and Happy Crafting.
