Winter Wonderland Christmas Designs Part Two




Hi all :) Another busy week getting prepped for Christmas, is it me or does time actually accelerate on the downhill slope towards the end of the year!

Picking up where i left off last week i've got a few more of my Winter Wonderland designs to show you as well as a peak at some of the things i've been making with them...


Winter Wonderland Snowflakes

I wanted to make a simple design that could be used alongside the Winter Wonderland snow scenes is showed you last week. Snowflakes seemed the obvious choice so i had fun drawing a collection of different ones by hand before putting them together to create the final design.


Its available in two different print sizes (pop along to my Spoonflower shop for more details).


There are also four different colourways to choose from - the two white and pale blue options above (the pale blue is the same one used in the snow scene designs) and two red and white options.



I'm pleased with how they've turned out. As always, i look forward to hearing what you think of them!


Winter Wonderland Printable Craft Papers

I have also made my Winter Wonderland designs available to buy as printable craft papers, available from my Print and Paper shop on Etsy.



At £3.50 i hope the price is pretty reasonable, especially as Christmas is such a popular time for hand-making cards and things. Once you have downloaded them you can print them off as many times as you like for personal use or for making items to sell on a small scale.


Winter Wonderland Gift Tags

Now, here's a peak at what i've been making with the fabrics, first up, rustic gift tags. They come in sets of three - here are the animal ones.


They have a central layer of hessian which creates a pretty frayed trim and also adds a nice sense of substance. On the reverse side of the tags is a panel of brown paper ready for writing your message.



I think that adding a nice tag makes a gift much more special and these are a great way to add rustic style and interest to brown paper gift wrap.



Here is the other set.


I hope you can make out the lovely texture of the linen/cotton blend fabric from the pictures, they are wonderfully tactile.


Both sets of tags are available now from my website and Etsy shop priced £4.50.



I think that's enough for one blog post so i'll save the rest for another day... meanwhile, i'm off over to Handmade Harbour to find out what you've been up to, see you there :) x

  3. I think the gift tags are gorgeous, and the craft papers should go down really well. You are right, lots of people want materials to make cards at this time of year.

  7. Fabulous gift tags, and you're right presents do look better when they're beautifully wrapped and tagged. I'm a big fan of the mostly red fabric too.
