Little Flags

I made these stiff flags from sturdy card and gingham print craft papers.  The flag pole is a food-safe wooden stick which makes them great for sticking in cakes.  
Or how about writing a name on the flag and sticking it out of the top of a Christmas stocking?

Merry Christmas

More sewn fabric gift tags.  
These are made with fabrics I've used previously and the ribbon is printed with 'x Merry Christmas x'
I love the spotty green material with the small floral print, and the pink gingham fabric and ribbon are wonderful.

Little Mitten Decorations

I've made some little mitten decorations from sturdy card and printed craft papers.  
The edges are ink-smudged in silver on the maroon mittens 
and dull gold on the pink and green mittens.
I punched a star-shaped hole to thread thick craft string through for a hanger and tied a pink ribbon knot around it.

Tatty Fabric Heart

This tatty rag heart measures approx 12cm x 12cm. 

Made with four different materials in a pink and green colourway - two floral, one gingham, one spotty - it is finished with a pink gingham bow and hanger and 'Handmade by Tamara Jayne' heart tag. 

Christmas Bunting

A couple more buntings of JOY!
These are smaller than the other Christmas bunting I've shown but that seems to make them all the more lovely.
I have used my vintage-look red gingham paper on the outer flags and a couple of other prints on the JOY flags.  The letters are ink-smudged or outlined with golds.
Then the flags are threaded on to brown crafting string and finished with a bead and loop at each end for hanging, and a simple knot of red gingham ribbon.
