It's time for a new Polkdoodles challenge and the theme is
The DT were challenged to make something to hold a Christmas Gift, using kraft and ribbon. I've used a sheet of A4 Kraft card to make the gift box and then to hold it shut, I've made a band from an offcut of printed paper and added a thin strip of red ribbon around the middle. The topper was cut using one of the Stitched and Pierced Nesting Circle dies and then with kraft off-cuts I used the Holly and Spruce die to make the leaves. The berries are recycled from fancy crackers we had a few years ago - they were too nice to throw away!
Good luck with the challenge!
