InspireINK November Blog Hop: Christmas

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 

Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Today I am taking part in the monthly InspireINK blog hop. I love this blog hop because it is a team blog hop and I especially love it this year because it is the closest we have been to being together. The theme this month is Christmas so I have made a project I first saw my team mate Karen of Crafty Karen Designs share on my Facebook group, she has CASE'd The Paper Pixie so I just had to go and have a look. I made my prototype with my sister who was really pleased and said I bet these would hold a miniature. What a fab idea and she said they would make great presents for work colleagues. However we soon discovered that not all bottles will fit so I had to set about playing with the measurements to get it to fit most bottles. 4th attempt later and I did it! I also decided to add glitter paper to all 3 sections of the folded part.
