Countdown to Christmas - Day 14

Quick post today with an easy idea for Christmas ornament that will look great on your tree and isn't messy!

This ornament is one I taught for my Mommy & Me Christmas Class.  The kids loved the washi tape and were able to practice their handwriting on the back of the stick.  Some even got some knot tying skills in but not many - that's where the mommies came in! 

Besides the creativity shown by the kids on which side of the paper they used and how they stacked them on the stick, you can either use dimensionals to mount them or glue so it can be done with any kind of paper or adhesive you have on hand.  If you don't have washi tape, you can have them draw on the paper or use other colors.

  • Cardstock/DSP: This Christmas Specialty DSP (3 x 3/4, 2 1/2 x 3/4, 2 x 3/4, 1 1/2 x 3/4)
  • Ink: None
  • Stamp Set: None
  • Accessories: Popsicle Stick, Crop-a-dile, Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine, Candy Cane Washi Tape, Dimensionals or Adhesive 
I'm going to teach this to Callie's class and have them use watercolor paper.  They can paint on the strips and then mount them when they have dried to have a one of kind ornament or a tree that they can frame like I did with one of Callie's below!  The background in my frame is a 4 x 6 piece of Real Red that I ran through the Big Shot using the Falling Snow TIEF.
