Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Christmas Tags

Good morning

The current theme at Crafty Boots Challenges is Christmas.  It can be anything to do with Christmas - cards, decorations, presents you have made, just as long as it is to do with Christmas.

Today I have been making some gift tags as I need to start my wrapping.  Now, I know that you will find this fanciful but I actually dreamt about putting this design together.  I got up the next morning and got out my Big Shot and tag dies.

 Next I cut a snowflake from the coloured card using a punch, I have several snowflake punches so I did a selection of each.

I added a spot of glitter to the end of each arm of the snowflake.

I placed a white tag under the coloured tag and finished it with some bakers twine.

  1. Love these - so pretty in all the different colours. I've never thought of having a tag die, now I think I probably need one. xx
