and a close up.....
Di has used fabric:
These little bags made from calico with a little lace and tied with ribbon. I thought they might be nice for my great neighbours to hold some special soap or smellies.This is my favourite. A smallish draw string bag with a little Xmas rag wreath just pinned on. Finally one last bag with a xmas stocking theme: Trish has also used fabric and felt. Trish's drawstring bag is just GORGEOUS. The shapes are so simple yet effective. Trish used heavy cotton, felt and bondaweb to attach the felt to the cotton. She used white acrylic paint to 'frost' the tree and gold to highlight the bird . And just a few more ideas. How about using: Normal brown paper and stamping it using potato stamps with red paint and glitter glue?String , garden twine and sisal instead of ribbon?
OK now all you have to do is finish that Christmas shopping and get Cracking with the Wrapping!!!
