These are the 25 parcels (and Christmas card)
I prepared for my partner
for the Christmas Advent Swap.
I hand made 12, shop bought 10 and found 3
from my craft stash.
I'll only blog about the ones I made.
So far, Victoria will have opened from me
an Emery Board Holder
Details of how I made this are shown here.
A mobile phone charm which I didn't photograph - doh!
A festive bird cage decoration.
For this I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix
Caged Bird Bigz die.
I covered the bird with music paper, coloured with
some distress inks and added a layer of Sparkle Mod Podge.
The Poinsettia flowers along the bottom
I made some time ago and found the
blog post describing how I made them here.
Now onto the pressies I received from Victoria -
This is the box I received
and here's the presents for days 1 to 7
Victoria is a keen crocheter and I love in particular
the crocheted mug holder
(not to mention the sachets of hot chocolate!).
The heart shaped cookie cutter came with a recipe
for 'Gorgeous Gingerbread' - sounds yummy!
Today's gift was the bar of SeaSalt / Fresh Linen soap -
which smells divine.
Thank you Victoria!
