Handbag advent tree

Finally I have finished the last project a different slant on the advent tree. It really was a labour of love as as you can imagine, putting it all together, and trying to come up with different styles for each bag.

Project Eight - A modern Christmas advent tree, which you can perhaps put chocolates in, or small gifts i.e. charms, sweets - whatever you fancy really.
The pot was decorated, filled with sand, the tree was made for us and we just had to paint it and screw hooks into the wood. the bags were also cut out but the time consuming part was scoring, taping, decorating and making up.

Hope you like it.

Liz that is fantastic, just the sort of thing to give a teenage girl instead of the traditional advent calendar. Would love to tackle one but won't have time this year.
