Christmas Fair

Sorry I haven't updated for ages. I have been so busy getting thing ready for the Christmas Fair at my children's school. I will not be doing a stall there again though. I will just stick to supplying the flower shop from now on.

I was in such a rush I forgot to make a note of the names of the papers as I used them. Doh! The "Princess" was done on my Cricut and the flowers and large brads are by Papermania. The butterfly I decoupaged from an off cut of the same paper and added gems to the dots on the wings.

This black and pink box I made in the summer but I bought some new ribbons which came in a pack with some large pink and black blooms which I thought would look better that the Cricut flower that was originally on it. I also added the black velvet rickrack ribbon around the edge. This one sold.

I love the stamp on this orange and green one because it reminds me of my daughter Ellie. She always has her hair in plaits (braids) like this for school. The paper and ribbons are by Blonde Moments. The stamp is by Penny Black.

This cotton wool holder was originally a cotton bud holder which just happened to get all used up the day before the Christmas Fair so I thought I'd alter it just for fun. it could probably do with a little more adding to it but it made my stall look less empty!

They're wonderful! My dog's name is Princess, so I really like the first one! The second one is Provo Craft papers from a Slab, because I have those same papers, and I love them! They're all just wonderful! Great job!
