Christmas hanger, vintage style ...........

A vintage style Christmas hanging decoration using Maja Design 'I Wish' 6x6 paper pad and all embellishments from The Ribbon Girl online store. I cut and scored pieces of cream card, folded and made into a circle wich I backed with 25mm ivory frilled lace.  I added various sizes of card and patterned paper from the Maja pad, then lastly an intricate diecut topped with a santa clause image which I cut from a piece of the Maja paper.   For the hanging ribbons I used 25mm faux hessian, 15mm cream satin, 25mm burgundy satin, 10mm red square check, 38mm gold glitter on ivory organza and some 'Florence'  ivory cotton lace - everything used on the hanging is from the store

 this close up shows the various layers

My flower arrangement consists of a 35mm burgundy rose, ivory 20mm paper roses, ivory hip rosebuds and miniature blossoms plus some ivory/green speckled autumn berries. 
the poinsettias are diecut from 'I Wish' Maja pad, edges inked and stickled and a small s/a clear gem popped in the centre of each.

I really enjoyed making this hanging decoration which I will put in my hall as we approach Christmas.

Posh gift bag ....

Inspired by an exploding gift back made by  Lou Daubney  I have made this one from Maja Design 'Denim & Friends' paper.  The flowers are 40mm white daisy,  vintage blue medium rosebuds, white 20mm roses, pale blue miniature blossoms and mulberry paper rose leaves. There is a 15mm white satin bow to the side of the flowers and the handle is also made from the same ribbon

I added a white pearl and diamante oval embellishment to resemble a clasp, 6mm white pearl flatback trim along the top of the bag flap and 3mm clear gem s/a around the front of the flap.  The flap itself closed using small magnets.
 This is a view of the bag when opened
and here is the view showing the white satin ribbon handle.
