On The Eighth Day

We are going very red in colour!

The right hand side is another whole page pocket, please see page three for "how to".  The red flower is an inexpensive decoration, ten for £1.00. This is then threaded through the tag. The ribbon came from a company in Wetherby, Yorkshire.

On the left hand page we have a large envelope. I have had these so long I have no idea where they came from. The strips of paper decorating this envelope are intended for making paper chains. These came from Wilkinson's. They have such a lot of good value craft items, well worth checking out. Anyway, just glue the strips in place. I then mounted the covered envelope onto red card and glued this to the page. I then glued ribbon onto black card, which in turn was glued to the page. However if you can not get hold either of these you can always make your own, by cutting strips of coloured or decorated paper. You could even make your own decorated paper by using rubber stamps to decorated a sheet of paper then cutting it into strips.  The reindeer center piece was also from Wilkinson's  part of a card making kit. The envelope could house a letter or wishes lists, maybe photographs.
