A Vintage Christmas At C2CU

November’s main theme at Crafts-Too-Challenge You is A Vintage Christmas. There are two parts to the monthly challenge and the first which runs from 1st – 14th November is:
A Monochromatic Vintage Christmas.
Disregard the candle as it’s not finished yet and only added for decoration … actually it’s my next class project, showing the girls how to decorate a candle and bag to match.

Turned a boring brown paper bag into my monochromatic make and went with different tints, tones, hues and shades of a single colour. In this case it’s brown. The Snow Tree E F was used to frame a picture from this Nellie Christmas Sheet. With the Xmas Tree border die I snipped off each tree individually and made a banner with them.

The candle will be used to show the girls how to add a pretty image onto it. I used a Nicecrane Designs image which I first printed onto tissue paper.

    What a lovely gift set, Shirl! How do you run tissue paper through your printer? It is an excellent idea! I’m looking forward to trying it, too. The vintage look makes your gift bag and candle extra pretty. I can see many smiling faces on your students when creating this pretty set! Wow! hugs, de

    The altered bag is just gorgeous – and I can’t possibly disregard the candle: finished or not, it’s already lovely!! Sorry to have been so absent. House-moving was followed by impossible work-schedules – just starting to catch up with myself, let along Craftyblogland yet again!!
