Christmas decorations

December 12th, 2011 by Louise

Hi all

Jeez we are all busy busy aren’t we?  We are heading off to Adelaide for an early Christmas with Paul’s family on Friday for a week so I have to be super organised with pressies etc for here when we return and of course over there too.  Mmmm, best check my list again I think.

I have managed to try my hand at some clay Christmas decorations which I saw here and I’m quite pleased with them.  What do you think?

I’ve used Fimo soft clay and a cookie cutter then simply pressed my stamps into the clay and baked them in the oven.  Once they hardened and cooled I used the SU Shimmer Paint Champagne Mist on the image and sentiment.  The snowflake is from a retired SU set The Snowflake Spot and the sentiment is PTI Signature Christmas.

Here’s a close up.  The shimmer doesn’t show up much in the photo but it’s quite specky in real life.

I got better as I went along so I’m sure by the time I’ve finished making more they’ll be spot on.  I think they make a nice teachers gift but I might also hang some on our tree!

Thanks for stopping by.  Merry Christmas!

    Brilliant Lou! The best present for people you don’t really want to give a present but don’t want to not give them anything. Will have to put them on my list for once the move is over:)
    Love Jule X
