Candle sets

It is time for my  DT projects for the  December  Challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ . The theme for the challenge is as always anything goes with a handmade bow. The DT had to show a box or bag to inspire you all this month so I created the inexpensive cute candle and boxes ,Ideal for teachers gifts.
I used a spellbinder die set to create the large panels on the candles. The papers are Phil Martins Creative expressions snowflake papers. The snowflakes are made using a die set from sue Wilson. The tags were cut by using a sizzix tag die. The stunning bows are created by using my trusty Craft-
Dee BowZ  bow maker.It makes perfect bows/tassles and more  every time without any fuss ,so quick and  it is so easy to use you can read all about it here Craft-Dee BowZ .

A Pretty snowflake

Here is my my inspiration project for  the  Craft-Dee BowZ  November. challenge The design team had the theme of silver/gold/red and we had to make a 3d ornament . So I thought I would make a snowflake .It has been made using strips of 12x12 paper from the DCWV Elegant holiday paper pad. I made the embellishment for the middle using a Tim Holtz die. The sentiment banner came also from the DCWV paper pad.

I attached some silver organza ribbon so the snowflake could be hung up and the beautiful triple looped bow was made using my Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker. I used creative expression small dazzler gems to decorate the bow centre and snowflake
