Christmas Wish Bauble

To get a decent picture of this wish bauble was nigh on impossible, but I hope you can get the gist of what I have done.

The iridescent baubles from Paperchase  come in a box of 9 and measure 6cm.  They cost £5 per box which works out at 55p each.
I printed the word “wish” in blue and then ripped the paper around the word giving a rough edge.  I then added Hero Arts hologram micro glitter, using a sukura glue pen around the edges and lightly over the word.

I then carefully placed the paper and some small very pale blue stars into the bauble.  Done!
I am giving these baubles  instead of Christmas cards this year, a card is soon forgotten, but hopefully these baubles will be hung on friends trees for many years to come.

Just beautiful, really. And the thought behind it too. Gorgeous. Am seriously going to have to jot down a bookful of ideas to start in January.

Have you ever considered setting up a poundland or moneysaving craft blog like the dollar store crafts one but for us in the UK? Or a Flikr group maybe where we could all come together and share our bargains and creations? Is there such a place already? I know there is the Christmas thread on MSE but a blog is such a better format to show off piccies and things. Honestly, you amaze me with your finds.
