Its my turn to pick the challenge this time at CRAFTY RIBBONS and I have chosen
Traditional Christmas Colours!
I am a sucker for red, green, cream/white at Christmas time. I think they evoke memories of my childhood.So we would love to see any kind of Christmas project that uses these colours somewhere.
I covered it in green and red broad ribbon, the edges were done with this gorgeous new England tree and present ribbon and I finished with a bow using a mix of dotty ribbons and one of the buttons from the button box.
For the Thank You cards I cut strips just wide enough to go inside the box. I used the same ribbon again and stamped Thank You in red ink.
I backed the inside of the card in red to cover the ribbon join and printed off a little insert with a tree and sentiment.
The box could be used to house a little Christmas gift instead of the cards but I thought it would be a nice gift for my m-i-l who likes to send little thank you's after Christmas.
I made this matching gift back using a piece of green kitchen cloth from the pound shop:) I stitched the ribbons in place, used my eyelet tool and threaded some thin green ribbon to tie it closed.
Sorry for the amount of photos but heck I wanted to show them all lol.
