Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!
This is a classic style of card, I have made it several times, normally using our Alpha tags here. But why not use our wonderful EXCLUSIVE New Christmas Tag ribbons.
I made this card while on the exhibtion stand in Exeter, so it must be easy, I have such a small demo area to craft on! I used the matching Happy Christmas ribbon to make the tied parcel effect and bow. I stuck the Christmas Tag ribbon onto card as I have shown you before here and cut out. With a hole punch I made holes in the tags and then threaded them onto the matching 3mm satin ribbon. Mounted all the tags onto 3D foam pads and stuck in place. You can find all the ribbons here .
Sticking and stickers is something that children love to do, none of our glue tubes ever have lids on! Yesterday afternoon the children were in a sticker mood, give them a sheet of stickers and it will keep them quiet for ages, we have stickers all over our shelving units. Tony put some new luminous poles around our parking places the other week - yes, you have guessed it they are covered in Winnie the Pooh stitckers!!!
But sometimes their sticker mood can be very beneficial........................
Mollie and Sam hard at work putting the "I'm FREE" stitckers onto bags of ribbon. Look at the concentration, so next time you receive an order from us and you find a little surprise gift inside and the label is not quite straight..................you will now know why!
Set up day for Ally Pally today, if all goes to plan Tony and I should have a few hours spare to play. We like going and finding conkers, we have a wonderful collection from around the world.
