About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Snowflakes are falling!!

Morning. Tonight is the launch of the one day special on Hochanda, of the fab new Christmas Cut In Create a Card dies. Here is another sample I made using the Ornate Snowflake die.
This is a drawstring gift bag, made using the instructions that you can find HERE. I changed the measurements to fit the size I wanted - but all the principles are the same.

The outer bag is really cheap honeycomb fabric, while the inner is white fabric with red snowflakes. I cut out the detailed snowflake in the same fabric having first backed it with stabiliser. Then I just used the outline die to cut a plain red snowflake shape to back it. They were joined together using Stick and Stay for fabric. I couldn't use heat on the honeycomb fabric, so used Stick and Spray for fabric, and then machine stitched it to secure it on. 

Be sure to tune in tonight to catch the launch.
