A little bit of Hollybobs...

Hello again,

Well the weather here is turning cold, and today 60mph wind so crafting all day it is then!

I have a little extra look at one of my Christmas fav's today, Festive Hollybobs   from Polkadoodles and is the 6th addition to the fabulous Work and Play series all designed by Nikky Hall.

The milk carton cut file ready for printing and hand cutting or you can import and trace it into the silloutte is one of the extra's on the Hollybobs collection, and makes an excellent gift box for all those little pressie's we have to find at Christmas time.

My 6 yr old and I have decided that we are going to make another 3 of these and fill them with sweets for her teachers as their little thank you this Christmas!

All of the images and embelishments are from the Festive Hollybobs collection and I have used all pre-coloured images!  I know, a 2nd make from me without me using my trusting alcohol markers!  I'll be alright honest, don't worry lol :D

I covered the images the night before I made this with Rangers glossy accents and then left them over night to dry completely before fussy cutting them to add to the milk carton.

Final touches of a string of pearls and a bulldog clip decorated with ribbon to hold it closed and that is that :D  A fabulous idea from our Nikky, and will come in so handy this holiday season :D

Here are some more pics:
