Broadway Bound Father Christmas Bag

I am trying to be organized this year with Christmas presents and making all my own gift packaging, and wanted to make some Christmas treat bags for under the tree.

These bags are tall and sized to hold a 125g Lindt chocolate Father Christmas, but they are large enough to hold an abundance of most types of Christmas confectionary or maybe bottled gifts.

I wanted a change from Christmas DSP and it occurred to me that the Broadway Bound DSP could easily double up as Christmas Paper with all those beautiful Metallics.

Love these bags as an alternative, more contemporary take on a Father Christmas style bag.

Merry Christmas to All

Christmas is my favourite time of the year, but when it comes to sending Christmas Cards, I love to mix up old and new styles to create something unique.  This card sums that up!

The Merry Christmas to All Bundle has a mix of fonts which works on so many different styles of card, and on this card, I love that traditional script font cut from the gorgeous Joyous Noel glimmer paper.

This was my first time using the Nothing Sweeter Bundle. It’s a great set for creating tags and belly bands for Christmas confectionary gifts (the stamped images resemble cookies).  But I decided to do something a bit different and use the tree die to create an actual Christmas tree for my card front, cut from the stunning Joyous Noel DSP. The dies are so versatile and pretty, and their use stretches far beyond Christmas.  Just love the stitched border effect, though I’m thinking my little stitched tree has a Nordic feel about it.  What do you think?

I used white heat embossing on the ‘Christmas’ label for a nice crisp white image against the Sahara Sand card front, with a few white sequins to finish.

Which colour way is your favourite? I’m leaning towards the tranquil tide…..!

Anyway, thanks for visiting today! xxx
