Freshly Brewed Christmas


Got to love Christmas for all the great crafting you can do. Make sure you check out Leonie and Narelle’s blogs for their wonderful Christmas inspiration. I have two projects to share with you today and both are fairly easy and I’ll give you some basic instructions too.


This one is a shaker ornament for your tree, as a gift or for anywhere else you may need to hang some Christmas cheer. It’s made with the Stars Framelit Dies and Wonderful Wreath Framelit Dies.


My Album 1_2-001

  • Largest Star – Cut 1 in Kraft Card stock
  • 2nd largest star – Cut 2 in Red Glimmer Paper and 2 in Window Sheet
  • 3rd largest star – Use this to cut the centres from the Kraft and Red Glimmer Stars
  • “Joy” or “Noel” – Cut 1 in Whisper White from Wonderful Wreath Framelit Dies
  • Adhere Window Sheet to back of Red Glimmer Stars with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Adhere sentiment to the front of one star using Fine Tip Glue Pen
  • Place Foam Strips around the back of each star on the Window Sheet – make sure not to leave any spaces
  • Punch a hole in top of Kraft Star
  • Adhere star with sentiment to front of Kraft Star making sure to line it up
  • Lay flat and add Mica Flakes to inside of star then add backing star making sure to line it up with the other stars.
  • The Window sheet makes it easy to line all the stars up.
  • Place Baker’s Twine through the hole and your decoration is ready to hang.


Now my second project is a chocolate or sweet bar wrapper and is very easy to make.
