Simply Stampin' Colour Challenge

Good morning,

Its so cold outside today so I hope that you are snuggled up warm inside with some crafty project to fill the time. I have finished my Christmas cards now - phew! But I do still have a few presents to wrap. I like to make a few presents each Christmas, last year I made Chili Jam, and this year I've made sweet treats for a few friends, delicious Chocolate and pistachio fudge. So I decided I would use this weeks colours to make cute little gift bags for my fudge.

I thought these colours would be perfect to make little traditional Christmas pudding bags.

They just need to be filled with the yummy fudge, I hope my friends will like the bags and enjoy the sweet treats inside!

To make your own bag simply cut two circles from Chocolate chip CS and run then through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot embossing folder. Next cut two scallop circles from Vanilla CS using the Scallop circle die, glue these to the top of the Choc Chip circle and cut away the excess. I don't have a small circle punch so I used the centre circle from the medium Daisies die in Cherry Cobbler CS, you will need six of these. Lastly for the holly I cut four ovals in Wild Wasabi CS with my Oval punch, scored them in half and cut semi circles to give them a holly shape, glue these to the top of your scallop circle icing and you should have two puds!
