Favour Box

These favour boxes are made using the paper offcut from my origami chocolate boxes (see last post).  I have embossed both the snowflake and the paper.

They're just big enough to hold 3 chocolate mints.

Christmas Fairs

Can't believe it's the last day of November.  I've been so busy the last couple of weeks, getting all my goodies ready for the school christmas fairs.  Unfortunately my last fair was cancelled due to heavy snowfall so I've still got a heap of stock piled up in the kitchen.

Here's a couple of pics of  my stall:

Most popular items were the chocolate boxes (stack of 2 origami boxes containing chocolates and After 8 mints - ideal for Christmas place settings), the desktop calendars and these post-it note holders which my mother made:

These tree decorations made with Thorntons chocolate coins were also a hit.

Personally, I liked the Snowman Soups:

Easel Card Calendar

Here I've turned an easel card into a desk calendar.  This is a fabulous stamp by Kanban which I have embossed in gold and added extra bling to.

Products used are gold miri card, Kanban Spring Silhouettes stamps, Versamark with gold embossing powder, various coloured gems.

Fiskars Butterfly Magic

At last, a wee bit of spare time to upload a few pics.  Think this butterfly stamp will become one of my favourites.

This was a simple one, just stamped in Versafine imperial purple and clear embossed.

This one was again stamped with Versafine imperial purple and clear embossed.  Other products used were Stampin Up Pale Plum card, Papermania Victorian Fleur and Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folders and a bit of bling.
