Please have snow… and presents under the tree Floral Art Design


Wire a Tiny Twig Treasure Trunk for small Christmas gifts


Pine needles, pine cones and ripped flax to decorate the twig gift box

Add a few ice pellet beads, a bow and a crystal star

Twig Christmas treasure Trunk.

in this moment...

Weave ribbon through the twigs

Oh yes, there is nothing like the present of being present

Have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas everyone!

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
