Christmas Stockings

It's suddenly got very busy here - and I am sinking under a pile of 'to do' lists!!
Hope all your Christmas plans are going well.

Today I am showing you some cute little gift stockings, that will hold  gift cards or cash :-)


These are really quick and easy to make and much better than putting cash in a boring envelope!! 
I used the great free template from Waltzing Mouse Stamps
 

I found a few sheets of these pretty, glittered DPs, in my box,  but I can't remember what make they are.
And, because you can't have TOO much sparkle at Christmas, I added some extra glamour dust :-)


The stocking top is tied closed with some pretty, organza ribbon.
To this I added a glittered tag, with a button snowflake and some silver bells.
