A REDNESDAY CHRISTMAS
I hope you all have the best Christmas ever!
I call this a "tag-oration"; a tag that's a decoration. I save my Christmas cards each year, and this one was screaming "patriotic" to me! So I pulled out some K & Co. patriotic pieces for the bunting, stars, and the circle (which is raised up). The tree on the bottom is a K & Co. 'Clearly Yours' dimensional sticker. The bird holding a Merry Christmas message was cut from my Cath Kidston catalog. I glued it onto card stock and is raised up also. Some extra glitter and a stars hanger, and let the banner ever wave! Carol, I thought of you as I was making this!
It was definitely a tag-full month! They're so much fun to make and make great gifts, too. These next two are for the high school secretaries. They're made on 6" x 6" chipboard pieces. I just love the three kids peeking over the fence!
These two are for the two crossing guards I see every morning and afternoon when I take Jade to her school.
This little snow globe-without-the-snow thing is made from a 1-1/2" high by 1-3/4" wide plastic cover to a hand sanitizer pump bottle. It's for Becky's teacher assistant.
The teachers, secretaries, and crossing guards will also be getting a bag of goodies consisting of brownies with peanut butter chips, white chocolate-dipped pretzel sticks, and a few other little home-made goodies!
In the next few days, Katherine and I will be making Transformer cupcakes for Christmas! LOL!
Katherine wanted to decorate the tree this year. Needless to say, most of my beloved vintage ornaments never made it to the tree! :( But Keroro did! He's the green frog on the top of the tree - a Japanese animation character.
Once again, I wish you all a very merry Christmas, and may you and yours be blessed beyond measure!
