Faery Ink's December Facebook Challenge- Gifts

Good afternoon and welcome to my DT post for the new Facebook challenge from Faery Ink. This month the challenge is to make a gift or gift packaging. You could create something as a Christmas gift, a gift tag, decorate a gift bag, but it doesn't have to be a Christmas related project either, as long as you use an image from Faery Ink on it.

I used the gorgeous Gabbie Art Nouveau Fae for my project as she is just stunning and was perfect for my project. I decorated an MDF media board from That Craft Place to use as a freestanding calendar. I was inspired by something similar I saw in a local gift shop, which had a message on one side and some butterflies on the other. I wanted to create my own version of course, so asked Danny at That Craft Place to cut me some of these media boards and they are just perfect. is the front of my calendar. She has been coloured in purples as this will be a gift for my fabulous friend Michele, who loves all things purple.

And here is the reverse side with the calendar on it. I changed my mind about where to put the actual calendar so now have a gap, which I think I might add Michele's name to instead.

This calendar is also for
