First finished "Christmas make" this week is a "twist" scarf. it's long enough to wrap around the neck three times. Nice to wear with a jumper or a coat and there's no ends to try and tuck inside the front of your coat and get caught in the zip. Made in bright girlie colours to match the lovely bright girlie it's going to live with.
Second I have made a "Daddy's little Angel" minibook, this is for carys' daddy to keep in his desk draw at work and remind what he's missing everyday when he's not with her.
I made the minibook in a wrap around style (new to me) using more than a few sheets of Bazzill to make the cover and pages. The book measures just over 6x4.5", and stays closed with two magnets, hidden beneath the journal spot on the cover.
Each page measures 6x4.5". I scored and glued each page at .5" on the width and stuck them firmly on top of each other, to form a side spine, so that the pages open with a fixed hinge effect.
The pages are held in the book with two large Stampin' Up brads, with a panel of CS on the back to cover the brad backs and add extra support.
I used a new 6x6 pad of papers from Jillibean Soup, stickers and Journal spots from Jillibean Soup & October Afternoon
I also used some Journal spots and tags that I have made myself on the computer, embelishing them using a mix of stamps, punches and the sewing machine.
This stitched heart was inspired by something I had seen in Pinterest
