Upcycle for Christmas

Wow!  I can't believe how long it has been since I blogged!  Even the process has changed.  I made something for the first time in months today so thought I would share.  It gave me so much pleasure to be crafting again that I realised I need to get back into it.  My mum asked for craft labels for the back of the cards she makes as a Christmas present.  It looked a bit dull so I did this....

These are her labels - I got a box from a company I subscribe to and decided to decorate it and wrap the labels in purple tissue paper.

I turned the lid of the box into this.  My mum likes Gorjuss Girls so this decoupage seemed appropriate.  Then I thought (due to dimension) how do I wrap this.  So got a brown paper bag and decorated it.

I used gorgeous images from a Pollyanna Pickering set with a few pearls and flowers.  Thought this image was appropriate - a daughter giving her mum a gift.

I hope to carrying on blogging now, so glad to be back - got loads to make for Christmas and I am so behind!
