Good afternoon, again I have to say sorry for being absent. I was away last weekend at a craft retreat which was more chatting, laughing and just catching up with friends, while away I picked up,a real nasty cold/flu like bug. I think it was from being on trains for over 9 hours each way. which along with sore legs and back ( just normal for me these days) I ended up in bed till Wednesday when I turned the corner as they say.
I have been taking it easy and have put together a lot of my Christmas cards. Today I have been playing making my cut down XCut gift bags and doing up baskets for Patricia to sell at her grandsons Christmas fair next weekend.
These little gift bags hold mini products, you can't fit three in, I just am showing two little hand products that I had. My stock is out side in my new store room, it's pouting with rain so I am not going out to get any in, that can wait.
Two little baskets with goodies.
They don't photograph well in the cellophane but do look lovely I have used rich red ribbon to tie them up.
If you want to know how to cut the bags down, I did a tutorial back on May the 1st on the blog.
Thank you for all your comments on my gift baskets, they were well received, I have to say I still do love making my baskets up over doing other craft things.
