Cleaning the craft area

I'm actively "nesting" before the baby comes in a little over a week. I started on my craft room today. I found an envelope with five of these elves that I pieced together last Christmas. I decided to make some quick Christmas cards. I think I need about 7 more cards to have enough for my list, so I'll post more as I make them.

Thanksgiving card

I haven't crafted anything over the last couple weeks. Not feeling the best and it hurts like crazy to sit for too long.

3D Christmas Tree Fun

These are super easy to make and you can do it with a number of the evergreen trees available in Design Space. I cut out 4 trees at about 4" x 5" each. I attached a score line down the center of the trees so I could use my scoring tool and save time folding them. I cut the stars at about an inch. My daughter is going to help me decorate them for our mantel for Christmas. 

I used some small glue dots to ad the tiny buttons and bakers twine to this one. I'll share more pictures later when we get more decorated.

Cards for the troops project

I'm super happy that I got back all of the cards that I sent with my daughter to school. Several of the elementary school classes helped color and write on the inside of the Christmas cards. All of the drawings are pictures that I made and have posted on my other blog

Here is the card that my daughter, Meghan did.

Some of the kids really did some awesome work on these cards.

120 cards ready to go.

I spent time today writing in the ones that I made using my Cricut. This has been such a fun and rewarding project. It was so great to get the kids involved with this and to have the teachers follow through.
