Kids’ DIY Christmas by  Buffy Cooper

Children love to give gifts that they’ve made. How many of us have proudly worn a macaroni necklace created by one of our favorite children? This project will show you how to help your child create a gift that is useful and lasting. Best of all, children will learn a little about science and gardening. Fun and cheerful tags using the Here’s to Cheers bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Holiday Catalog complete the gifts, and they’re packaged in the 6” x 12” Gusseted Cellophane Bags. Use the leftover bags to create a cute wreath to hang on your front door. Children will be proud that they helped with décor and gift giving this season. This would make a fun class for older elementary or middle school children, or for children and parents.

“Basket of Wishes” Scraplings

basket-of-wishes-scraplings-sp

There are several interpretations of “scraplings”, and in this tutorial a scrapling is a card (or tag or any other creation) that gets its start from a scrap of cardstock or paper . . . or both!  Although the cards in this tutorial get their start from full sizes of cardstock and are presented with exact measurements, the intention is that you will feel inspired to create cards and tags of all shapes and sizes from your stash of scraps.  When you need to create a quick card but the scraps all seem too small, think outside the box and use them to create a non-standard sized card.  The good news is that scraplings should fit any size (mailable) envelope that you have on hand, and the recipient will enjoy the odd size/shape of the card!  This tutorial includes instructions for making a pocket holder that has been custom-designed to perfectly hold the set of “scraplings”.  Another thing to love about this tutorial is that it features one set of designer paper and (mostly) one stamp set.
