I had little time with the run up to christmas for blogging, but thought I'd share some of the "packaging" I did for 2010.
These were some darling ornaments I picked up whilst abroad and being made of china, needed to be packed securely. I also made some tags, printing out the German translation on each ornament and stamped on it with a snowflake motif and tied it to the ornament with linen thread.
I custom made an open top box for each ornament....
..then a "cover" to enclose it, having stamped on it first and added a "window" which was adhered on top to enclose it.
This was the back, with a stamp from my personal collection. The boxes were all invidual.
These are some of the christmas cards I made using the Level 3 Hostess Level set. The sentiment "Peach on Earth" is from my personal collection.

After visiting the Velvet Caves we visited Gemmentegrot. These caves were more cavernous - we came across these climbing Santas which were activated by sound. If you clap your hands loudly, the santas start to climb up! Once they reach the top, they climb down again.
More pictures of scenes and market stalls.
To finish with, here are some pointsettias which had fibreoptic lights in them - picture doesn't show it too well. Hope you enjoyed the "tour". I'd love to go back at another time of year to view the caves properly. If you are considering going abroad to visit the Christmas markets, I'd definitely put this one at the top of the list!
