Crafting for Christmas

At Craft Club last week it was time to fill up a treat holder with chocolate, though I'm sure it will need a refill or two before it gets on to the tree!

We used the Petal Cone Die with the Big Shot die cutting machine to create a treat holder to hang on the tree. The cone was left open but it can be closed to stop prying eyes or to keep your choccies safe! The concertina flower is an effective base for the stamped wording.

The folded star decoration was so simple but really effective and was designed by the talented US demonstrator Dawn Olchefske. She has kindly shared a video of how to make these on her blog. I will be making a giant one of these to hang up in my office!

The card is a simple design using a very popular stamp set called Seasons of Joy.
