Day 13 - Raffia the natural way

I can not bear waste, and keep almost everything..............just in case it is needed at some point in the future!

I have had these spare orange slices knocking about my kitchen since making the fragrant door hanger a couple of Sundays ago.  I have already rescued them from the bin once, Tony decided they were rubbish.  So I knew that unless I used them soon they would disappear again.

Mollie and I were doing facetime the other evening and I spied several rolls of raffia ribbon by Rachies fire place.  Rachie borrowing stock again - tut tut.

Anyway it gave me an idea to use up my overs of oranges and cinnamon.

That is one present complete, I have decided not to wrap my presents the same way this year, but be a little different with each one.  This one sure does smell good! 

We stock raffia in only three colours - emerald, shiny gold and dull gold.  I used the dull gold as it was perfect for my natural look, you can find them all here.  They are £10 for 100yd rolls - so perfect for all that wrapping that still needs to be done!

I have another collection of cards from our Top 5 Christmas Ribbon Challenge this time from Kelly.

I adore the strong purple theme you have used on this card Kelly.  It is a perfect match for the let it snow ribbon. I have to thank everyone that purchased this Let it snow range, it was so popular we had a second production run.  Although we had some super colours printed, we are almost sad to say the RED out sold all the others.  There are far more traditional crafters then we thought!

Oh what a sweetie Kelly although I would not want to be outside in the snow with shorts on, and look at that list for Santa!  This a fun card Kelly and truly special.  We hope you enjoyed the challenge and have been following the advent inspiration.

I still have more challenge goodies to share, so please do not worry if yours have not appeared yet.

Hope you were not blown away yesterday and stay safe today.
