CHRISTMAS PRESENT EMBELLISHMENT

I'm trying to sort the room I craft in again - I spend so much time organising and re-organising in the hope of keeping the room somewhere near tidy.  It's a NIGHTMARE!  



Today after making a Christmas tag for the Sweetpea Dt Inspiration Blog I felt really inspired to finish colouring these gorgeous images from, once again Mo's Digital Pencil.  I thought I'd have a go at making a Present Embellishment rather than a tag - the idea being that as more and more of us our giving our present in boxes rather than wrapping paper I would add an embellishment to the box which could be used again.





Not being organised enough to have a present ready for wrapping I have just placed the embellishment on a box lid to give an idea - although much more can be done with it when properly arranged and gifted.



Having finished this the kaos in the room is terrifing - Oh well guess will just have to start again but at least I have several storage draws sorted so it's just a case of putting the embellishments, ribbons etc etc back in the right storage bins/baskets.  The rest of the sorting and tidying will have to wait for another day - a girl could only do so much at a time without becoming totally overwhelmed and at least the rest of the house is looking good!
