DB Christmas Boxes

For a few years now, I have been making Christmas decorations, and selling them to raise money for Save the Children. This year, I decided to create a 'Christmas Box', which will contain a selection of vintage style textile decorations, embellished with beautiful velvet ribbons, buttons, cabochons and bells. 

I started my little production line a few weeks ago, designing Christmas bells, elves boots, stockings, hearts and the very popular White Winter Doves from last year. They are all filled with natural Kapok (for those who don't know what Kapok is, It's what was used to stuff teddy bears etc, before the invention of polyfibre, and is completely natural), which is cured with my essential oil blends 'White Winter' and 'Mulled Wine'.

 I have sourced lambswool, tweeds, vintage fabrics and herringbone wool to make these, and last week, sampled a few and photographed via instagram.

Since then, I have had so many people emailing to reserve one or more, so thank you everyone for your support.

As well as decorations, I've decided to include a few pretty handmade cards, and some tea lights in our candle scents. 

The boxes cost just £10 each plus £2 P&P, and ALL profits go to Save the Children.

I am only taking reservations for now, by emailing  DelphiBurling 
Please include your name and address and your twitter or IG ID, if you have one. I will be later emailing with payment details when the boxes are ready to be sent out mid November.
I'll also be selling them via etsy.

Here are some pictures of what you might get in your christmas box....

White Winter Dove. Scented, felted wool trimmed with mink velvet ribbon and silver bell.
Vintage Christmas tree heart scented with 'Mulled Wine' oil blend and trimmed with vintage style cabochons, glitter ribbon and bells

Lambswool tweed heart filled with scented kapok and trimmed with red and cream velvet ribbons and bow, and faux diamante


These will all be available to buy separately too. Details coming soon.......
I have approx 30 Christmas boxes left, so please reserve one and support Save the Children this Christmas.

Have a great Sunday.
