Festive Chic!

This is for the current Stampin' Chic challenge which is to:

Be Chic with a Festive Theme

So, taking inspiration from I think the current issue of Papercraft Inspirations and the wonderful Enfys, I've made a little pocket bag!

I've used two of the papers from the Big One, stuck them together to create doublesided paper and folded the 12x12 sheets as per instructions. I tied some fluffy ribbon stuff (recycled from a box of Christmas cards!) and threaded it through the holes I made to keep the folds together. I've added some thin black ribbon too so it tied together and the fluffy stuff didn't moult too much!
The bling gems are from the Poundshop - a sheet of them in different sizes for a pound! And the Christmas stamp is Papermaina 'Let It Snow' collection that I've stamped onto black card with silver ink and then added a ring of red glitter glue around the edges.

This will go into my box for next year as for me Christmas is now organised. Almost. Just a few things to wrap and I'm done. And because it was so quick and easy to make I have a feeling that I will be making more of these for next Christmas.
  • Papers: The Big One - Clare Curd Signature Range (stuck together to make it doublesided)
  • Stamp: Papermania 'Let It Snow' acrylic collection
  • Ribbons: From my stash
