Favourite Things

My favourite things about Christmas are Carols From Kings (a televised Carol Service) and - now don't laugh, I know it's really trivial - gift wrapping!  As I am setting the theme for Crafty Ribbons Challenges this week I have chosen Favourite Things About Christmas.  Your project must include your favourite thing from the festive season.

One of my favourites this year is this parcel wrapped in decadent wide grosgrain with a matching tag and 3mm ribbon.

But my project for this weeks challenge is this...

There will be some coffee addicts out there who can tell what is inside from the shape of the package!!  I simply wrapped in maroon tissue and wrapped some Vintage Christmas ribbon around.  Handily it is exactly the right width.

Then I whizzed up a couple of tags using paper and cut files from like for ever's Wish List kit and my sewing machine.

I attached the tags by winding some 3mm grosgrain around the present a few times and tying in a bow.

Come over and join us at Crafty Ribbons Challenges if you have a spare crafty moment in the next week!
