I had some mugs with straws that I bought for the children to wrap up for Christmas. Last year I had some small Christmas bags so I wondered if I had any left, but no! I did have a birthday one so I decided to see if I could make some out of Christmas 12 x 12 paper. I measured all round, got out my Hougie board and made a total of nine bags. I can't say it was all smooth sailing though, it wasn't until the fifth one that I really felt I knew what I was doing :)
The grandchildren made these. I was going to put battery candles inside for them, but when I got them out I realised the backs were solid, so my husband cut out holes at the back. I helped tear up the paper first, then showed them what to do. After that it was all their own work. Tomorrow they are going to stick some gems on them. While they were doing them I made a start on my Advent house.
So far I have just done the first coat of gesso.
Today for Free on Friday I have an Owl for you.
would love to see how you use it. Take care x
