Introducing…Cookie Cute!

Cookie Cute Gift Wrap

While it may still be a little early for Christmas, hopefully you’ll forgive me this post.Since I started making gift wrap, I’ve really wanted to have festive gift wrap but that’s not really very profitable so I spent a good while thinking of a design that was festive but still useable for the rest of the year. The colour scheme was pretty key to that – it’s wintry rather than Christmassy, and gingerbread men are good all year round!

As previously mentioned, the design is called Cookie Cute and features a cute gingerbread couple, plus a gingerbread Bunny, Panda and Bear. There’s also some happy little hearts and stars to add a bit of colour. I hope you like it!

In the shop now is wrapping paper, gift wrap sets and badge sets, plus some Christmas cards in a much more festive colour scheme – once you add that green it just screams Christmas.

I also made a hanging ornament sewing pattern featuring my cute cookie, which is in Spoonflower’s contest this week. I would love to make it into the top ten this time around so PLEASE VOTE FOR ME HERE if you can. In return, I promise not to mention Christmas again until November. Deal?
