Christmas creations

Hi all,
I hope everyone has been having a safe and blessed Christmas. We had a very cruisy Christmas day - the rest of my crew were not feeling 100% (tummy bug) so I went to church in the morning and we just had a quiet day at home which was nice no rushing around the place. It was Charlotte's first Christmas and just had to share this pic of her ...

Also just thought I'd share some things I have made in the last week or two.

Cookie Gifts
Here are some homebaked biscuits I made with Sebastian as gifts for our neighbours, he was the official cutter outer-er.

The recipe was just for plain shape biscuits but we thought they looked a little too plain so we decorated them with white chocolate and some silver sprinkles, then wrapped them in some cellophane
and tied with a nice ribbon. We did try a couple just to make sure they tasted ok....and they did!

Quick Money Wallet
I gave a couple of people some money for Christmas this year (I know - not very imaginative) and didn't just want to put money in a card or envelope so I made up a couple of very quick money wallets.

Here's a quick step by step:

1. Cut two strips of 3"x7" patterned paper. (For my outer layer I used a gorgeous love elsie self-adhesive fabric sheet)

2. Place paper back to back and sew around the outside, then fold in the middle.

Tie some ribbon around the middle then add the money! All done.

Hope everyone is enjoying their time together - stay safe and well.
