Today I went to my favourite shop again and spent the day making Christmus stuff.
This morning we made Christmas cards and this afternoon we made decorations..
All the Christmas messages on the cards came off one sheet of 12 x 12 paper which meant there was no stamping involved.
These cards were quick and simple to make and the idea was to show us just how easy it is to make your own simple Christmas cards.
The ornaments were made from a kit with all the craft wood pieces for all 3 ornaments included in the kit.
The first thing we did was to paint the embellishments that went on the baubles and the back of the baubles as well.
Next we put Gesso on the unpainted side of the baubles and covered them with the papers.
When these dried we used a foam distressing pad to make the edges look aged.
We then assembled the embellishment pieces and glued them together and when these dried we glued them to the baubles.
The last thing to do was to tie the ribbon through the small holes at the top of the bauble.
