These are some of the Christmas tags I made to give as gifts for friends. In the true spirit of Christmas, I decided to hoard some of them for myself and keep my favourite snowflake one for myself. I'll be getting a lovely present for myself on Christmas Day! I made them with my beloved Sizzix Big Shot die cutter, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads (Antique Linen and vintage Walnut) and used various Christmassy stamps.

I was catching up on the recent series of Kirsty's Handmade Britain today, whilst writing the dreaded Christmas cards. It was the one where she was sewing a cushion cover using fabrics that were personal to her. I noted that she used one of her son's muslins. How sweet I thought! What a good idea. Just a shame that after my children had got through them, all our muslins were good for were removing from the area with a pair of large tongs and taking them outside to be incinerated.
