The one thing thats great about winter is sitting scrapping by the fire :) Todays no exception, its freezing out. Although sometimes its hard to drag myself out of a good book, as I camp out by the fire!
One of those crafty sessions lately produced this little collection. I used the Firecracker collection to make my card and decorate my gifts.
So first up the gift bag. Just an altered paper bag. Ive dry brushed gesso over the base, and then layered different pieces from the collection together for my cluster. The best thing I love about the different collections is that I can use buttons from various collections to match any paper theme! I think I used three different ones for this set of gifts :)
Some white gift wrap covered my gift and a paper bow from three different papers created the bow, finished with a blossom and brad in the centre :)
A matching card finished the set off, using a raft of different embellishments :) more buttons, more brads and more blossoms!
Ive tucked some distressed muslin into my cluster and added extra detail with random stamping and yummy Lemonade glitter paste :)
So Happy Birthday Shirley, I know you had a lovely day and got spoiled rotten :) like any birthday girl deserves! :) <3
See you next time :)
