Day 2 of Crafting to Christmas


On day 2 of Crafting to Christmas Virginia decided to decorate the back of her christmas ball with tissue paper, construction paper, foam, and of course glitter. The girl is all about some glitter lately. I had planned to make ballerina snowflakes today, but Virginia decided to put that off for another day.

Today she wanted to make home made Christmas cards. I got the idea from Dily-Dali Art blog. We used plain printing paper and I let Virginia stamp her finger onto our rainbow stamp pad. Next she stamped the paper. We used glitter glue for the wire and made the card look like christmas lights. Then we wrote Merry Christmas in the middle. Next I pulled out my laminating machine and decided to test if it would laminate fabric. I cut out the card and laid it on the fabric and ran it though the laminating machine. 


The fabric went though the laminating machine just fine. But next time I believe I will use card stock for the paper. And the glitter glue was not the best idea to use for the wire of the christmas lights. Once though the laminating machine the glitter glue kind of disappeared or just got moved around the card. So next time we will just use a pen. Same for the Merry Christmas I believe I will write with a pen or color pencil for round two. 

We got a late start today on our cards so we only got half way though the start of the second Christmas card. We plan to finish the second card up in the morning. So watch for the final picture of card two tomorrow. And the second version of the christmas card will also be shown tomorrow as well. Virginia is loving the Crafting to Christmas. Each morning she is waking up and asking me what craft we are doing today. I believe this may be a nice tradition to add each year.
