Christmas Creating

Hello..........Six days till Christmas! Are You Organised? For once I think I am, which is a good feeling :)

Today I have a few more Christmas creations to share with you.
Last week I showed you this ornament, made from a jar lid.

Here are two more

 Love the snowy scenes!
And Below are DIY Gift bags created using stamps from "Auzz Trinklets n Kraft"
"Gabi's stitched circle and square stamp set"
The bags were made from everyday printing paper. I determined the size of the bag, then joined the seam together with washi tape. I used a variety of stamps to created the gingham, circle and word collage tags. The red tags with hearts were die cut. I made the bow using We R memory keepers envelope punch.

I had lots of packaging and bags after doing my christmas shopping last week....before  throwing anything out, I think about what I can
re-purpose. These handles were cut from another bag

 I hope this gives you a few ideas.......don't buy gift bags, have fun with your stamps and DIY
I'm linking these  up with "Paper Sweeties" challenge.

A few of You might know that my son will not be with us for Christmas this year.....he is working in the Canadian snow fields, enjoying a 'WHITE Christmas'!

This is the card I made for Him.....Santa enjoying 

Google helped me find this Fun image.....I printed it off, and Ta Da, an Aussie Christmas card. I die cut the deer using 'Create a Critter' cartridge!

enjoy the time with your families........see you in 2017

  8. ok... so... jar lids... must save all of them... I was just thinking about creating a shadow box with some tuna cans but was wondering if it was possible to get all of the smell! But lids is a good substitute... not as deep but that might not be a bad thing and oh my how beautiful yours are!! And those bags are so sweet... and that card is just very cool... awesome image and very very cool! Love all of this!
