A is for anything Christmas!

If you are looking for my Christmas Fun DT inspiration
find it here
but still thinking about Christmas...
my friend posted this idea on FB in mid-December.
I loved it and thought I must make my version - but living in India I only just found some M&M's!

The verse says the following -

I just made small packets of candies - I only had one bag!
I used the 'topnote' die with my Big Shot, folded in half to make the toppers.

The front sides - I started using a small stamp, using a nesting die to cut in in a circle.
This stamp came from a See-D's set 'Traditional Christmas'.

I then thought - well it's not long after Epiphany when the wise men arrive.

 This stamp is from Stampin Up's 'Come to Bethlehem'.

But my favourite is this one...

I 'upcycled' the image from a Christmas card and decoupaged to make this topper, adding gold glitter on the star.

I will definitely make some of these in time for next Christmas!

Happy Crafting!!
