It's been a festive frenzy here in the MarmaladeKiss household. I've been baking, cooking and doing more baking! Yesterday I baked cakes, mince pies, cheese straws, bread and stollen. I've shopped till i've dropped, and yet there's more to do before I collapse in the pub next door later with friends!
But during my frenzy, discovering I had no glue or sellotape, and needing some wrapping for my mince pies, I made some bags. Now my Mother in Law gave me some old antique bible pages after a recent clear out .. I thought they might be apt. And then on wrapping my cakes in cellophane, thought these old pages may add a certain jenesaisquoi (s'cuse the spelling) to them too!
I took pictures and over the next few days will post a tutorial. Too late for tomorrow I guess, but these things can be made for any gift and with any paper at all, no glue or tape required!
In the meantime, I've set up a little treat post for later (when i'm safely in the pub), and I hope you all have a fabulous, fun, festive and restful time over the next few days!
