Countdown to Christmas - Day 18

I've mentioned often that I'm a big fan of thank you notes.  I think telling someone thank you for hosting a gathering, for a gift, for that perfect word or gesture when it was most needed, for being kind -- I just don't think you can say thank you enough.

I try really hard on this with my children.  Now that Callie is sounding out words and writing, there is no reason she can't say thank you with a short message.  This year at kid camp, we designed this project together featuring the Seasonal Decorative Masks.  We taped off a tree on the template using painter's tape.  Then I drew lines on it so she could line up the cardstock.  We sponged the tree shape onto the Whisper White cardstock and then adhered it to the folded Crumb Cake card.

The kids also used the "Thank You" and "You're the Best" sayings from the All Things Thanks stamp set, coming soon in the 2017 Occasions catalog.  I then took all my extra Paper Pumpkin sequins and random sequins and had them adhere them to the tree with glue dots.  They punched out a gold star out of glimmer paper and viola - a handmade holiday thank you that they had lots of fun doing!
