Bente week 4 'Gift Ideas'


 Hello Sizzix friends!

Not long now until Father Christmas makes an effort to squeeze down througn the chimney and we'll be gathering with our near and dear ones to enjoy lovely food and maybe open a heartfelt gift or two. I will be giving away both storebought gifts and a few small tokens of appreciation that I have made myself. The theme for this post is actually one of those cute little pieces that I made myself.
It's a brooch that I made for an elderly relative.

I also made a matching pair of earrings in the shape of a snowflake.

I used one of the Tim Holtz plastic sheets (that are great for embossing!) and glued it to my paper as reinforcement. Once again I used the pretty download papers that you can get for free. -Love them!

I used the circle scallop die to cut some glitter-tulle to add in between layers.

I cut out the different sizes of snowflakes from paper/plastic, and from heavy felt as well.

I started with the larger size in paper/plastic and glued the other snowflakes oone on top of the other. As a second layer I used the tulle to add som sparkle and 'frostiness'.

After I glued on the smallest flake I actually added some freshwater pearls to the center as well as some liquid pearl.

Finally I sewed a pin to a small piece of felt  and glued it to the back.
As you see; very easy and fun to do!

This is what I have used:

Sizzix Big Shot Machine Only (Powder Blue & Teal)
Sizzix Bigz L Die - Stacked Snowflakes
Sizzix Framelits Die Set 7PK - Circles, Scallop
