Christmas Craft for Santa's Cookies

Cookies-for santaHere's an idea to involve your "littles" in preparation for Santa's visit! 

How about leaving Santa's cookies in a personalized bag? The little ones can color the Santa from the Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle and you can do the rest! I think it's a fun alternative for cookies on a plate!

Let's take a look at the how-to video!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • You will need two pieces of Poppy Parade CS cut at 6" x 6".
  • Score at 1-1/2" on three side of three sides of each piece.
  • The designer paper is cut just for the front at 2-3/4" x 4-1/4".
  • You will need a piece of Shimmery White CS cut at 4" x 5" to stamp Santa.
  • Cut the "Santa" letters from scrap Sparkle Glimmer paper.

Here are the supplies for the Santa Cookie Box:

Product List

Have the little ones color the Santa before adhering to the box.  Use Watercolor Pencils or crayons for the coloring.  Maybe this will start a tradition with your children and grandchildren.  Let me know if you try this...I will be waiting to hear from you!

Need To Make a Get Well Card?

Don't you love the Distinktive images that give you shading and texture with just one ink then stamp motion?  Or, as you will see in the video, you can "stamp off" so that your ink is not so dark and get varying shades of the same color.

Let's take a look!

Let's Dress Up Your Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving-napkin-rings-and-placecardsYou can easily dress up your Thanksgiving table with supplies from you craft room. 

In the photo above, you can see three examples of napkin rings.  The 2019 Gather Together Bundle and the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper are highlighted here.  Use any combination of leaves, sentiments, and images to make beautiful napkin rings.

If you do not have use for napkin rings, use these elements to create place cards such as the one in the upper right of the photo.

For the napkin rings, cut a piece of designer paper to 1" x 8".  Add elements using inks and card stocks to complement the designer paper.

For the place card, cut the designer paper 3" x 4".  Fold in half at 2".  Use a label punch with a light neutral card stock for a space to write the names of your guests.  Add leaves or stamped images in the upper left corner to make it fancy.  You can make these ahead of time and store them easily.

Your paper crafting supplies can serve you well for home decór and party planning.  Try this idea for your Thanksgiving table to surprise and delight your family and friends.
