Eco Friendly Christmas Crafting

Hello, and welcome to my blog!
You may have joined me from my beautiful friend Leonie and her gorgeous creations, 
or have started right here.
Today, there are a great bunch of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world, sharing with you our Eco Consious Christmas Crafting projects.
The main purpose is to be Plastic Free; recycle, upcycle, reuse and choose products that protect our environment.

I foraged some bits and pieces on a beach track; taking the leaves from fallen branches 
and hoping for nature inspired Bush Christmas creations.

Gift tags with a difference.
Large leaves adhered to the cardstock with 'Tear & Tape Adhesive', 
and 'Mini Glue Dots' for the other foliage.

Make your own gusseted gift bags using Brown Paper sandwich bags! 
(My bag measures 26.5cm x 20cm or 10-1/2" x 8")
1. Trim 1cm or 6/8" from the bottom of the bag.
2. Score the bottom of the bag 5cm or 2"
3. Score both sides 4cm or 1-1/2"

4. Stamp an image over the front of the bag.
(I have used a Christmas tree from the 'Perfectly Plaid' stamp set)
5. Snip the score lines from the bottom of the bag, to the 2" score line.

6. Open the bag and fold in the sides.
7. Fold under the flaps and adhere.
*Tip: for a more sturdy bag, add cardstock to the bottom measuring 
11.5cm x 7cm or 4-1/2" x 2-3/4"

The ultimate Christmas treats in Copper lidded glass jars.
Wrapped with 'Braided Linen Trim' and a Christmas Tree from the 'Pine Tree Punch'.
*The soft plastic packaging from the treats can be taken to REDcycle - 
'keeping plastic bags and soft plastic packaging out of landfill'.

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
Some cute packaging of these cookies in a preserving jar.
Decorated on the lid; some embossed cardstock, and a lovely wrap of 'Magnolia Lane Ribbon' and the tag attached with the 'Mossy Meadow Linen Thread'.


I love the nature inspired look of my Christmas Crafting, and I hope to have inspired you to create some amazing projects yourself.
