Tea and Biscuits and an International Crafty Gift

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a project we did during my December classes. It was Christmas so we had to have a bit of chocolate - so I decided to do a tea and chocolate biscuits gift pack.



We used the fabulous stamp set called Just Believe and used the marker to stamp technique to create the coloured image. I LOVE that soft wide striped ribbon and it finished the gift bag beautifully.


Inside we attached a little bag of chocolate biscuits, (this is my sample one and the the biscuits are already gone - it is filled with tissue for the photo LOL).

At the top is a tea bag holder stamped with another stamp from the Just Believe set and punched with the fabulous Scallop Trim Border punch.



Oh - and by the way - we don't always get our tea from Harrods. My lovely niece Sophie works there and we get little gifts from the food hall from time to time :)

Now I sent one of these to my online friend Anne-Marie, who has a lovely blog...and look what she sent to me!


What a beautiful card. I love all the layers there. Would you like a close up of the goodies in the bag?


As well as the delicious Ghairadelli chocolates, (all gone - back on weightwatchers points now LOL), there was this exciting little gift. Around the dolly peg is a length of fabulous pom pom trim. If you are reading this in the U.S. you can find it in the holiday mini and I am sure Anne Marie would love to sell you some! It is not yet available in the UK - but keep checking back, you never know what we may get. I am going to think up a very special project to use it on. Thank you Anne Marie. X



Back soon with more projects.
