Children's Christmas Class

I promise I'm almost at the end of my Christmas items! I keep finding "just one more" that I haven't blogged! These were two items made at children's Christmas class, where I had some delightfully well mannered girls for a morning of creative fun. The first item was a double milk carton holder & yes, before you ask, the cartons did contain treats!

The one's the girls made had a lot more glitter on it than I put on mine and were secured at the top using tiny clips e.g. mini library clips, rather than punching the holes and fastening with string (faster way for them to access the treats!). Each side of the milk carton had a different image on it and all of the edges were sponged to add the "extra" finishing touch to them.

Stamps: Christmas Classics & Forest Friends
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Real Red
Card Stock: Jolly Holiday DSP, Real Red, Whisper White & Old Olive.
Accessories: Crop-a-dile, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, 2 way glue pen, SNAIL, Big Shot, Lots of Tags die, hemp twine, mini library clips, 1 1/4 circle punch.

The second project for the morning was another treat holder - this time a hanging snowman ornament. Very cute and refillable, with a  tab on the back hidden by this hat! What I don't think you can see from my photography is that there is a hole at the top of his hat to tread a gold cord through to enable hanging it from the Christmas tree. It held approximately half a pack of standard size Tic Tac's, but you could use mini marshmallows or other small white lollies (sweets/candy).

Card Stock: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie & Old Olive.
Accessories: Crop-a-dile, Dazzling Diamonds glitter (on holly berries), 2 way glue pen, SNAIL, 1 1/4 circle punch, 1 3/4 circle punch, treat cup, 2 step Bird Punch, Word Window Punch, Small Tag Punch.
