Remember paper snowflakes? I hadn't made one since....well in fact I can't remember the last time. They are so simple and delicate and fun to make so I decided to revive that craft from my youth. I had to look up the proper way to fold the paper online, but after I did I had oh such a nice time making them. They are a perfect winter decoration, and it made me feel like a kid again! (Ok I usually still feel like a kid, but this brought back specific nostalgic memories).
I also decided to have a go at another craft which Vanessa demonstrated on her lovely blog and you too can learn how to do it there. It is an interesting material made out of fused plastic bags. I sewed mine into a small bag and am planning to give it to one of my friends for Christmas! It is so fun, and such a wonderful way to recycle all those old shopping bags (of which I have an overwhelming amount).
