Christmas Tissue Box covers

I've been busy making some tissue box covers recently .
My first tissue box cover was made using green card & decorating it with Christmas scrapbook paper , a high hopes stamped image,  felt tree & wooden snow flake.
I got the pattern for this cover from youtube .

 Next I knitted up three tissue box covers using squares with a moss stitch pattern.
The cover pattern I made up myself which is pretty simple when just using squares & sewing together .
For my decoration on these a knitted a black band for the middle and added stitched on a gold pipe cleaner to make it look like a buckle .
with some white fluffy wool I knitted another band to placed around the bottom of the cover.
The only things I used a pattern for on these covers were to knit the robin, holly leaves & berries, & pine cones, that came in a knitting booklet by Jean Greenhowe.

November Tag swap

Three Christmas tags made for the swap on
The theme this month as you might have already guessed is Christmas.
Using red card as my base I then added scrapbook paper & graphic45 frames.
The poinsettias have been cut using a spellbinders die & the gingerbread men were cut with a  Sizzix die.
I also used some  tape along the bottom of my tags.
