The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 258 - Christmas card tree.

I apologise for the frenzy of Christmas related posts, but once I get on a theme the ideas keep coming, so today I made a Christmas card holder using old twigs from the bush around our house. I added a couple of book page paper lanterns and a few other bits and pieces for colour.

And here is Ms J opening the first treasure on the advent calendar this morning.


  1. I LOVE THAT!!! I've used branches like that as a Christmas tree, lol...just hung my little ornaments on it. Using it for a card holder is a wonderful idea. Keep the branches for Valentine's Day: Hearts of all colors, maybe some ribbons, lace, whatever.

    I'm tellin' ya, send me the chocolate...that will keep you on track, lol!!!


  2. If only I had that many admirers on valentines day. ;-) That would be cute. I have a similar idea for my Mum for Christmas actually but I can't find the right 'branches'.

    Wishing you as much chocolate as your heart desires.

  3. Awww, thanks!!!

    Hoping you can find the right branches to do your Mum's project....
