More Christmas Makes, and a January Sneakie
With our eldest 4 nieces and nephews well into their teenage years it can be a bit tricky thinking of things to give at Christmas and Birthdaysm so this year we hit on the idea of giving each of them two vouchers for Thorpe Park. We also gave some people magazine subscriptions this year - so I've made quite a few gift wallets to present them all in.
I used one style as a project for Bubbly Funk Kits but as usual I wasn't content to make life easier and make the same thing for all the wallets I needed so there have been a few variations on the theme. But because I'm a sneaky meanie I'm going to save the "how to's" for another time! lol
I did actually make this sort 3 times though, probably because it was already Christmas Eve.....
Some I ended up doing in such a rush that they were wrapped and ready to give with no time to photograph (yes, I'll admit they were the ones for people we weren't seeing till after Christmas so didn't actually get done before the big day...) So one of my post-holidays jobs will be to make those up again before I forget how I did them.
Anyway, I'm writing this in a bit of a hurry because my folks are here and we're heading out for a walk in a minute so that's all I've time to post today, sorry.
I do have this first of my BF sneaky peeks to share.
I absolutely adore the January Bubbly Funk Kit - so much so that it's been a real struggle to cut the gorgeous papers this time. Definitely a great antidote to the Christmassy stash and one to get that mojo flowing once the stockings, trees and pretty lights are put away for another year.
It should be available for pre-order really soon now, so don't miss out - it's a real beauty
