christmas crafting

these cards are based on this amazing idea by my lovely friend sam over at polka dot dreams. her tutorial is really good & her luggage tags look awesome. i'll pretend i was going for a more child-like look with my trees- j actually commented that a child could have done better, but hey ho. plus, as sam pointed out- who doesn't need an excuse to eat some chocolate for materials sake!

i've also been working on some christmas ideas for the shop. this is the first one, and i'm actually really chuffed with how it looks- i think it would look perfect hanging on a tree or over a fireplace at christmas :)


  1. that christmas cross stitch is AMAZING! xx

  2. I love little handmade cards like that, Im doing my own wrapping paper and I'm not sure what else! I love that cross stitch its gorgeous,I have so much material and ribbons and things for you!! x

  3. these are adorable! i might have to make my own take on these! :)
