Teen Christmas Card

This card has been made using one of this weeks 

To make this card I used an A6 base card (used tent fold)
One of Lukes snowflake papers Snowflake 13
A piece of silver mirri card embossed with the cuttlebugs snowflake embossing folder
teen_christmas01 Decoupage sheet
a small pale blue bow
some small blue gems

I printed the snowflake backing paper A5 size and stuck it on the base card and trimmed the edges
In the centre of this I stuck a piece of silver snowflake embossed mirri card
In the centre of the snowflakes I stuck  some small blue gems
The decoupage sheet was cut out and assembled and then stuck to the right hand side of the card
The blue bow was added at the bottom in the centre
Across the top I stuck a small Happy Christmas border peel off

I think this is more suited to a girl teen because of using the gems and Bow

Here is another one I made

Little Christmas Stockings

While here I thought i would show you what the Children have been making this past couple of weeks at Sunday School

Several of these little stockings were made from felt
The Children have sewn and decorated them and each have inside a small mini Chocolate bar
A small bell was added on to the hanger so they jingle as well
These have been made to be sold at the Church Christmas Fair tomorrow
They are usually bought by the families of the Children

Pine Cone Bird Feeders

A good way of using up some pine cones and also a way for the birds to get some food during this awful weather we have been having here lately

I  melted some fat in a container in the microwave 
then Megan added some bird seed and gave it a good stir
She then pushed into all the little compartments of the pine cones
and put on a plate to set
When set we added a ribbon hanger to each one
They will be hung on shrubs and branches in the garden
To enable birds to have a feast

Pine Cone Decorations

Megan and I made use of some left over pine cones from  an autumn walk by turning them into decorations
I sprayed them with a silver lacquer 
Then Megan dabbed them with glue and rolled them in some fake snow  
We attached a ribbon hanger to each of them
