Feeling Festive with Tando

It's a Christmassy theme this week over at the Tando Challenge blog and my contribution is a jolly sleigh stuffed with sweet treats. I hope you will join in for your chance to win some yummy Tando goodies! Now that's a Christmas treat!

I covered the Tando sleigh in patterned paper before edging it with paint and glitter.

I don't have a lot of Xmas stash so I reused some seasonal decorations instead on this piece. Along the sides I added mini tinsel (from Homebase) and along the top edge some icicles cut from a Christmas garland. The bells (on the rear edge) and mini stockings (inside) are also tree decorations (from Poundland too, so very cheap and merry!).

For my focal point, a Tando snowflake is covered with gesso that's been sprinkled with holographic glitter whilst wet. The runners have a tough of faux snow.

I felt my sleigh should have a licence plate on the back and here the Tando bookplates came in perfectly! I finished the embellishment with glitter brads and a mini bow.

Inside the sleigh I've tucked tasty treats! My candy canes are inside part of a kitchen roll tube covered in matching pattered paper, to make them stand up neatly.

I used these lovely Tando goodies (oh and one final note before I go - don't be daunted by the flat packed sleigh - it's super easy to put together!)

Thanks for stopping by and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
