Sorry I’ve not posted for a while, my BT broadband, which is totally rubbish, has been even slower than normal and I’ve been unable to do anything, let alone load up a post here! It’s is so frustrating spending hours on the phone in queues, talking to someone from every department they seem able to pass you around to but ending up back where you started… a crap service and nothing gets done about it… AAHHHHHHHHHH! We pay for ‘Up to 8mb’ but we only actually receive ½ a MB and as it has now virtually ground to halt most nights, it’s been pretty impossible to get anything done!
I found this fab template for a sleigh last year and made 30 of them for someone who wanted something different to put on the table for everyone on Christmas day than the run-of-the-mill cracker (they have a VERY large family and an even larger house to fit them all in!). I made the sleigh’s the size of the actual template and we filled them with a joke each, a little gift and a party hat along with a name place card. They looked fab and I only wish I had taken a picture of them!
For the ones I’ve just made up I wanted them bigger to hold the gifts I need to put in them so I enlarged the template by 50% on a copier as I want to sell them at my craft fair.
The sled base normally has a bit more to it to raise the sleigh off the ground a bit but because I want to put heavier things in these, I trimmed that part off and fixed it flush to the base for sturdiness.
Now for the bits I used…
If you want the template, it’s from Clear and Simple Stamps and the best bit is - IT’S FREE!!! It can be found here…
Hope you’ve had a fab day everyone.
Thanks, as always for popping along to see what I’ve been up to.
