Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Friday Die Day and it has to be something Christmassy today!
I'm featuring Snowflake Bliss.

I've used this die on quite a few projects but today something a little different.
There are 4 snowflake dies to this set and they measure:

1: 1 1/8”
2: 1 5/8”
3: 2 3/8”
4: 3¾”
 
This is how they look cut/embossed.
I've chosen dies #1 and #3 (smallest die is always #1)
to create three layered snowflakes and added a gem to the middle.
It was then time to start wrapping Christmas parcels.
I've chosen regular brown parcel paper.
Threaded the three snowflakes onto red/white twine, wrapped around with a bow at the back.
It doesn't take long and it really makes a brown paper package tied with string look
lovely and festive!
Some close up pictures.

So, if you haven't done all your Christmas wrapping (like me!) how about it?
They look pretty good under the tree (if you don't have kittens chewing everything!)
 
Snowflake Bliss is available to purchase here.

Behind the scenes at the Woodland Cabin there is a real flurry of activity,
my new role of Spellbinders UK Ambassador is really taking off and plans for
2015 are well underway. 


I will be touring the country with demos and teaching classes
from Aberdeen to Essex! 
I truly hope to be visiting a town near you. 

First off, in January I'm in Bury St Edmunds - Keep On Crafting.
All the details are here - if any of you live nearby please pop along for a class,
be lovely to meet you.

Lastly, if you are a newsletter subscriber - check your inbox, there's another sale!

Take care friends and have a lovely weekend.

Morning Christine,
Your Christmas wrapping looks really effective, I love wrapping in brown paper because you can add any colour of ribbons, tags etc. , I didn't think of adding die cuts though. Hope you and Elliott are having a lovely time today.

Great idea to use diecuts with brown paper. The craft cabin looks very neat & tidy, wish my craft room did as thats where we've been storing all the christmas presents. Good job I'm at work every day & too tired to attempt to craft.

Hi Christine. I love the snowflakes added to the parcel, a great way to decorate plain wrapping. Your craft room is very tidy, did you have to spend long tidying before taking the pic? : ) Have a lovely time in London with Elliott. I am looking forward to hearing about it. Take care.

Hi Christine
I love how you have used the snowflakes. I have this die but wouldn't have thought to use it on decorating paper for christmas wrappings. Hope you have a great time in London and will hopefully see you in the new year.

Hi Christine.

What a difference the snowflakes make to a piece of brown paper.. Its looks lovely.

Spent 2 hours in the Hospital today only to be told by my specialist that the result of my tests have gone missing- so annoying. I can feel my blood pressure going up!
Love Val in Spainx

Hi Christine, I hope you and Elliott are having a fabulous time.
Loving your Christmas wrapping and embellies, it takes plain brown paper to a whole new level, I love it !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Great way to jazz up 'brown paper packages' particularly for guys who really don't seem to appreciate colourful, glitzy wrappings. I'll be having a 'wrapathon' tomorrow afternoon.

Super die and love what you have done with it! Hugs Carole Z xx

Janice said...

What a great idea! I have seen so many brown paper parcels decorated on Pinterest, so I might just have to give it a go myself!
