Christmas Project 1

Hopefully, every Wednesday  I will be able to show you some designs I came up with for Christmas!  Believe or not my boys have already been listening to Christmas music and have already asked to put their trees in their rooms!  This very easy project I came up with from inspiration from the Oriental Trading catalog.

You will need:  Black and Red Sharpies, Rhinestone Gems, Oval and Scalloped punches, Gumball Green ribbon, Brown sugar or Basic Gray, whisper White, Blushing Bride CS.

I ran the BSCS through the big shot and used the largest Apothecary framelit.  Punched out the Scalloped Oval in White then the oval in Blushing Bride.  Glued them together and cut them in half.  Then glued them for ears.  Colored 2 of the smaller gems in black then the larger in red, for the eyes and nose and made 6 little lines on the CS for whiskers.  I used the scoring board to find the center and lined to 2 Points up scored 3 lines 1/2 inch apart then using the trimmer cut skits in it to slide the candy cane through, to look like its tail.  I made a tiny little bow at the top and adhered with a glue dot!

I know the first graders will enjoy this!  Hope you’ll make some too!   You can also use it for a present topper, a decoration for a card or Gift Card!  Enjoy!
