Stumpy the Dwarf Pine!
In the evening I felt creative, so I undertook a project which allowed me to combine my two great crafting loves - felt and cardmaking.
I came across little owl toppers I made ages ago that I did nothing with, and decided it was high time I made little notecards with them:
They are my new favourite size - 4 inches square - and I made a set of 6. Just straightforward and blank for one's own message.
Then I jazzed up a cute little jute bag that Himself's mum gave me (it had a jar of chocolate sauce in it originally - smlurch!) and used felt to create a wee owl embellishment for the front. The bag makes the perfect holder for the set of cards and their envelopes, to give as a gift!
The bag still requires a matching owl label to be tied on with twine, but I'm quite pleased with this new concept! I'll need to get more of those jute bags!
