I've had a really lovely week around some crafty makes meeting and catching up with friends. Who'd have thought I'd become a lady that lunches lol!!!
This week sees the start of Graphic 45's Hand Made Gift Guide. The design team and Ambassadors have been busy crafting away and are sharing their ideas and How to Make guides over on the G45 Blog. If you're after some crafty inspiration keep calling by. The event is running for four weeks right up to Christmas. I'm really excited to be sharing my Box of Crackers on their blog today.
The 12 x 12 Matchbook Box was a perfect size to fit the six crackers. I used the greybeard packaging from the box wrapping to make the inserts that hold the crackers in place.
Each cracker was made from one sheet of Merry Mistletoe 12 x 12 paper, shaped using the Envelope Punch Board and decorated with cut outs from Jolly Old Elf 12 x 12 paper and Petaloo flowers. They're all filled with Milk and White chocolate Lindor balls. Yum Yum !!!
If you'd like to make you're own box of crackers click here to go over to the Graphic 45 blog for the full How to Make guide and more projects and guides from the DT too. .
I'm donating this gift to help raise money for Zoes's Place Baby Hospice at a Charity event being held in Coventry later this month.
It's back to the craft room for me today, I'm in the middle of making samples for the Graphic 45 shows on Create and Craft on 16th & 17th December. No pressure ...!!! lol!! Tomorrow I'm heading off to the Motor Cycle Museum to have a mooch around the Craft Fair. If you're going we may bump into each other :-) Anyway enjoy your day and look forward to catching up again soon x C
