‘Decorations’ includes a pretty silver flower wreath made with mirrored card - great for contemporary decorating schemes, cute felt mice and an advent calendar to pull out year after year. ‘Cards and Gift Wrap’


brings together stacks of


ideas to prettify Christmas giving - I particularly love the recycling in the Patchwork Wrap project and the tissue paper Reindeer cards.


‘Cooking for Christmas’ is where your mouth starts


to water: try


iced snowflake cookies, cranberry and orange sauce and Christmas chutney.


27 | ukhandmade | Winter 2011 The sugar mice bring back memories of Christmas at my


grandfather’s house. That’s the thing about Christmas, it stirs up memories in all of us and this book will help you reminisce about old traditions and start new ones that will last a lifetime and beyond.


If you need some inspiration for presents for your loved ones, turn to ‘Gifts’. I would love it if someone made me the winter throw and the fur-lined baby boots are adorable.


Finally, Clare helps you get ready for Christmas lunch in


‘Table


Decorations’. Embroider a table runner or make crackers and paper napkin rings to bring a handmade touch to your traditional festive feast. As Clare says: “There is no better time to get creative than at Christmas. Trimming the tree, decking the hall, setting up the Christmas dinner table - all present wonderful opportunities to get crafty and create a sparkling, warm and welcoming festive home.” So break out the craft supplies and prepare for a beautiful handmade celebration.
