Week #5 - Christmas Crackers

Unbelievably we have already reached the last Sunday in June! We told you Christmas would be here quicker than you realise, and here we are almost into July! Hands up, who's feeling very pleased with their growing stack of Christmas cards? The team here in Winter Wonderland certainly are! But it's not just cards we have to prepare - sometimes there are other little touches that we like to create to add a bit of extra sparkle, and that's what the last Sunday of the month is all about - we would like to encourage you to make something other than a card, and our first project is Christmas Crackers. Now they don't have to be Harrods standard, and trust me when I say that all the team were driven crackers whilst trying to create our samples, but it gave us a all great laugh and we all managed to achieve our aim by remembering that it's not a challenge if it's that simple to do!

So, here are the finished samples from all the team:







So now it's over to you - we would love to see your Christmas Crackers - and no cheating, leftovers from last Christmas don't count!! LOL!! :o)

Love from

The Team
