December at Unstampabelles

Merry Christmas to you and yours - we are allowed to say in now that the 1st of the month has passed. Have you done all your cards yet? Me neither - I think I only have about 80 or 90 to go.......What about your shopping? I have a list.....

Guess I will be a busy girl for the next few weeks. What's new!

Christmas!

Some fresh food for Christmas delights

Pick your own at the farm at Sorell.

The theme at Unstampabelles this month is 

Flickering Lights 
TWIST have a candle in the item made

Prize is a $20 Aust (includes postage) Gift Voucher from shop of choice

Christmas of course, Hanaka and New Year.  A candle can be a sign of hope, a light in the wilderness, or through a window; it can be on a Christmas tree or just around it.........you can make a candle holder or similar or a Christmas candle decoration........... 


I made a candle holder - or a thing to slip over an artificial candle (tea light)
(got to be safety conscious)


I use SU Real Red card, and the vellum from Botanical Gardens and the Botanical Blooms die set.

I made it from my head but now of course I would make it differently. You learn a lot as you get your fingers all stuck together and try and manipulate things that are sticky and fragile.


It was very hard to photograph


The small flowers look like snow falling or small stars.......


Yes, it is a bit rough - its a prototype


So, that was it - what have you made for Christmas that has a candle and no stamps in it?
What can you make?

Off to Unstampbelles to see the lovely things the other DT members made and then off to your craft cave to create with a candle in mind.
