Evening,  Every year I make my friends Christmas Presents, last year it was a box filled with homemade Christmas treats, the favourite was the Baileys Fudge.  So for this year I decide to make more fudge and use it as a centre piece.  The cracker is the box!  Each cracker is filled with a mixture of Baileys fudge, White chocolate fudge and Pistachio fudge.

The cracker is made with A1 sheets of mirror card, and covered in Do'crafts Christmas paper and stamping.  The centre has the extendable pattern die cut in mirri card.  Tied with red satin and organza ribbon and more of Wendy's beaded hat pins.  More detail in the next picture, enjoy, leave a comment if you want the recipes, pix of fudge tomorrow!

I Love Cheese!

I've kinda set a rod for my own back in that Last Christmas I Made all my presents for friends, hopefully more about that as it gets closer to the big day.  This has meant however that all my friend expected homemade gifts for birthdays.  So far I've struggled a bit but certainly did for my boss especially as I work in a card and gift shop so she has seen everything!  As I love Cheese and so does she I decided on Cheese scones and a box to put them in...  As I forget everything thought I aught to put the recipe down.

225g Self Raising Flour
50g Butter
50g Mature Cheddar
4 Tbls Buttermilk
Pinch salt & Pepper
Parmesan Cheese (to chuck on top. Simple

The box is decorated with die cut flowers from a gingham fabric and stamped butterflies and sentiment.  Paper is Do'crafts capsule pink

If at First...

Try Try again....

This card started life as a Christmas Card, 2 attempts later it morphed into a Card for a friends wife's birthday.  Considering that he asked for the card to fit a voucher of a specific size, and it was the night before the birthday, this card was born!

Background is distress inked Do'crafts Christmas paper with Spellbinders Extendable pattern on Core'dinations cut twice following You Tube video instruction found Here card then sanded.  The sentiment is stamped and layered on labels 4 and finished with a bow and my favourite hat pins made by Wendy (Next Door).  Detailed picture below:-
