Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Little Christmas pouches.

Evening everyone. Uploading tonight as i've got to work an extra shift tomorrow. My boss is having a well deserved week off. It was his 23rd birthday on monday, bless him so he's having a week of peace and quiet away from Joe Public.
So anyway, here are the little pouches, AKA diaper or nappy fold pouches.
I did some of these at Easter and HERE is the post with more details and a link to a tutorial. The father Christmases from Aldi  89p for 9 (ok i ate the spare one,lol). The papers are old stash and are 6"x6" square. I didn't have any double sided papers so i glued a contrasting triangle to the top and bottom of the inside before i started folding. The little characters on the front were free with Crafts Beautiful mag last year. They've come in handy for odds and ends and if they are free with any more this year, i'll snap them up. I got the little bags from Craft Creations. I secured the bag to the pouch with a bit of double sided tape. You could add a ribbon and hang these from the tree. They are so easy the kids could make them for teachers gifts.
 I think a little glass of wine is in order now.   Thanks for looking see you soon. Di.xx

    I've just spent ages reading your blog and admiring your fantastic creations - I could have left a comment on every post but decided to just leave you one big one!

    I just love your 'Reindeer ****' bags - fab!!! I think I may have to 'borrow' that idea from you ;)

    I can't believe you've finished your Christmas cards - I'm ashamed to say I've not started properly!

    And your purple box is absolutely stunning - even if it does have glitter falling off everywhere! I LOVE it!

    Thanks for all of the wonderful inspiration you have given me. I have become a follower and will now be a regular visitor of your wonderful blog.
