Christmas Decoration & Gift Giving Idea's with Scrapmatts

Hello again :)

  Every year in our house and to make Christmas a little more exciting,  ( mainly for me ).....I like to pick a different colour scheme for our decorations. So this year we are going with the colours 

  Over at SCRAPMATTS  this month the design team were asked to create a Christmas decoration and  I went with my 2013  Christmas colours
Here is what I created.....

 (sorry the photo is a little dark)
 So to create this I have used the Scrapmatts Heart Mini Tray 01, (CB3006) which I painted white. Between the 2 layers I have placed a bit of cardstock (which I put through the cuttlebug with a embossing folder). I then dry brushed some gesso over the pattern, added a little muslin then glued together the layers. I then painted one of the Reindeers 07 (CB5050) and a gorgeous Holly 01 (CB1104) with gesso and then when dry, painted the Reindeer and berries (on holly) with Silks Acrylic Glaze in Solar Gold. I then stuck these into place and added some gorgeous Satin Seam Binding and other ribbons in Gold & Silver. The final touch was adding the zipper pull to the bottom and Lobster claw clasp to the top.
 The second DT task was to create something in relation to gift giving.
I chose to make 3 special Gift Tags for my children's teacher's.

 So I have used the Tags 05 (CB3009)
I have used Scrapmatts Card Borders 04 (CB1080).

for this Male Teacher tag I have also used Scrapmatts Gears 05 (CB1078) and Scrapmatts Scrapwords 07 (CB1199) and the Scrapwords 10 (CB1207).

With this tag I have run it through the cuttlebug with one of my favorite embossing folders, painted with gesso, inked edges added flowers, a cute little brass button, tiny twine, muslin and a few strips of pp.
The added flowers and goodies are from the AWESOME

I Hope the Teacher's like them?
