Mygrafico Feature ~ Vintage Christmas Take 2


At Mygrafico this week I used the same set as last time.  It is a lovely set to work with.

Vintage Christmas Labels

I decided to make a gift package for some hand cream.






I combined two of the images to make a frame. I really like how I can manipulate the images in Word. Not only can you resize but your can combine different images to make a new one.   Once I printed it out, coloured with Copics I die cut with a Spellbinders die, but didn't quite get it in exactly the right spot, so cover it by edging the panel with some gold pen.  I added a little sentiment die cut I found in the tidy up and made a belly bank to hold the package closed. I added some liquid pearls around the circle.  I found the instruction for making this package here but some of her measurements were out so I converted them to centimetres and made my own template.   If you are interested let me know, I can send you the measurements.

Do pop over to Mygrafico and see what the other's have come up with.  And check out our challenge ~ would love to see you joining in.
