Christmas is coming up fast! I love this time of year! Hot cocoa and Christmas lights.

I was hoping to have a few journals done for Christmas presents, but that didn’t happen. They will get finished, but they may be a random February gift. Who doesn’t love a random gift in the middle of the year?

This lovely tag was don with a Gelli print tag base like Monday’s was. The background paper is from Tim Holtz and I’m sorry to say, I don’t remember the name of the paper pack.

The ruffle on top is super easy to make!

I machine stitch, with the longest stitch setting, down the middle of scrap homespun fabric. You want to make sure your fabric is at least twice the size of where you want to put it. The ruffles bunch, for lack of a better word, and take more length than flat fabric.

When your done sewing down the middle, separate the thread. You’ll take the top thread and slowly pull. You’ll want to take your time with the pulling, you don’t want to break your thread.

You are also going to want to make sure the ruffles don’t get in a bunch. Flatten out (but not really flatten) the ruffles as you go along. Ruffles are super easy to do. I have a ruffle foot on my sewing machine but have never used it. Enjoy!
