Gifts for the Team

Hello friends

I gave a little tease last week of the gifts that I would be taking out to Phoenix for
the team.  Time to share the full photo! 
They are Christmas Puddings!
I wrapped a strip of hessian/burlap around each pudding box, added twine,
a rather fancy spoon (all kept in place with 3D Foam Squares)
Foliage and Scalloped Labels One are added and a jingle bell.
I shall have melodious luggage!
I've been told they do not have Christmas Pudding the States so I thought
it would be nice for them to try.
You could adopt the same design on your Christmas parcels this year,
I'm thinking of just using brown paper and then adding the same decorations
minus the spoons!

Take care friends and hope you are all having a good week.

Hi Christine.
What a lovely gift, an edible part and the spoon as a keepsake, how wonderful. May I ask where you got the spoons from?? You couldn't have made them or knowing you perhaps you did?? Your friends will love them.
Many hugs Lesley
