How to Make Christmas Shopping Bags

Do your Christmas shopping in style (and save on the plastic bag tax) with your own personalised bag. We made these bags as some pre-christmas presents so they could be used in the run up to the big day, but they would also look nice holding gifts under the tree.

Handprint Christmas Bunting

Pinterest has been inspiring me with its wealth of Christmas crafts, and I especially love the festive hand and foot prints. Having already sent cards and made tree decorations, I wanted another way to show off display some of Izzy and Clara’s artwork – so I made it into bunting to hang over the fireplace.

Mini masterpieces

I let Izzy loose with the paints for a while before cleaning her up, sitting her at the table and pleading with politely asking her to do a nice neat hand print.

We made a canvas showing Izzy’s handprints at 3 months, age 1, age 2 and now we were attempting the three year handprint. We would have had plenty of space to add another in 12 months time but she wouldn’t listen, grabbed the canvas and plonked her purple covered hand down in the empty space. It is a pretty good handprint though. We might still be able to squeeze in a 4 year old handprint.
