I remember making tags like these all the way back when I was in Kindergarten. At the time I thought they were the cutest and cleverest of things and such a great way to use up old Christmas cards! I felt so proud of the amount I made and therefore the amount of Christmas cards I had recycled. I’m not sure what recent event sparked my memory, but earlier this week I had the impulse to dig out all my old cards again. It’s now been quite a few years since I first made them, but the experience was every bit as fun and enjoyable. Using these retro/kitsch style of cards (which I’ve probably had for over 20 years) only added to all the fond memories too.
Wishing you a very merry Christmas!!! Hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow spent with your family and loved ones and have a very Happy New Year too!
I’ll be taking a bit of a break from blogging over the next month or so will see you sometime in Feb next year :)
See you then!
I feel I’ve left it a bit late to start putting together some shopping gift guides so instead I thought I’d feature some DIY’s I’ve done over the past year or so that would also be great Christmas gifts. These should all be really quick and simple to make too!
- Flatback Gem (Rhinestone) Floral Scarf
- White Chocolate Bath Melts
- Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Fudge
- Resin Cabochon Earrings
- Origami Butterfly Teabags
- Egg-carton Succulents
Hope all your Christmas prep has been going well so far. Hope you see some ideas you like here :)
I’ve been trying to think up some good, summery Christmas salad ideas and one of the first thoughts that came to mind a was Caprese salad. This salad basically consists of tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and olive oil – perfect Christmas colours and it always feels like such a treat too! Even though the roast capsicum is not an authentic ingredient, I thought it would be fun to make some little red stars from it in order to add even more festivity to the dish! (as it’s a bit tricky to make these from tomato)
