I was feeling so disorganised for Christmas and thought I was so far behind but then I stayed up last night wrapping all the gifts for family. Then I checked out what Santa has organised for the girls and realised that I was actually nearly finished (other than a lot of wrapping tonight after the girls have gone to sleep!). I'm still not sure how that all happened but obviously doing a little bit here and there adds up thank goodness. I was dreading hitting the shops on Christmas Eve.
In case you are looking for a little something to add to any of your gifts, a handmade Christmas Tag is ideal. They are quick to make and great for taking a little creative time out in amongst all this madness!

The red Manor House Creations flowers were originally white. As the quality of the Manor House Creations paper flowers is so good, they take altering really well.
1. Remove the centre stamens (sorry about the photo as this was taken late at night – my usual scrapping time!)
2. Paint the flower your chosen colour and allow to dry
3. If you wish you can change the colour of your stamens. I wanted mine to be white so I dipped them in Gesso:
4. Once everything is dry, pop the stamens back into your flower and play away! I added a touch of glitter to the outside of my petals before adding them to my tags.
I hope your Christmas preparations are running well. Enjoy this fabulous time of the year :)
