fabulous and inspirational book!
on 2 November 2012
This is SUCH a lovely book! Even my children are inspired by it and are nagging me to begin something! Many of the ideas are quite simple yet very pretty and the templates provided in the back are excellent and could be adapted for other projects too.Many of the creations can be made from inexpensive and easily available materials. Several of the ideas have a scandinavian look which is simple yet beautiful. I shall def be making several projects for Christmas and shall simplify others for the children to make.There are also some food gift ideas.
Chapers included are;-
DECORATIONS (incl Advent pocket calendar, paper scandinavian horse garland, embroidered stockings, papier mache baubles, embossed folk felt heart +several others)
CARDS AND GIFT WRAP (incl button and paper flowers, Russian doll cards, layered tissue paper reindeer cards +4 others)
COOKING FOR CHRISTMAS (incl iced snowflake cookies, sugar mice, fab gingerbread spires, crystallized ginger+ 4 others)
GIFTS (incl simple vanilla sugar, gift wrapped soap, little felt mice, winter throw, teacup candles , embroidered dala horse + 3 others)
TABLE DECORATIONS (incl scandinavian card tea light lanterns,christmas crackers, v.pretty yet simple embroidered table runner,Lovely mexican Tin horse candle holders (made from foil)+ several others.
Hope that helps!
