The best way to give your celebrations your own look is to craft it yourself and there’s no better place to go to for all your handmade festive fripperies than your craft shop. Here we’ve whipped up a range of Scandi-themed decorations and gifting ideas all with products from One Stop Craft Shop to show you how easy it is to create a strong look from just one retailer.
As you can see we’ve wrapped gifts using Handmade Paper in dots and snowflake designs (£2.10 per 38cm x 56cm sheet) and finished them with Anita’s Everyday Spotted Ribbon in Radient Red (90p for 3m roll), all available from the online retailer. We’ve also added a crafty touch with our pressies and decs using decoupage, die-cutting and paper sculpting to create a super Scandi-inspired look.
• Use a die-cutting machine and the Xcut die to make five die-cut shapes using your selected papers.
• Fold along the embossed lines and use the locking tabs to hold each section in place. Slot the five pieces together.
• To make the centre, use the Snow Crystal punch to make a snowflake. Glue in place and finish with a gem.
