Christmas Decorations..

I am challenging my girls to decorate our tree with decorations they've made themselves this year ( with a little of my help, of course!!)..

These are the first decorations we've come up with & I just have to show you them...I love them!! They are so quick & easy to make and look really pretty..
I have added some instructions here.. Please excuse the very very poor pics - I took them on my Iphone!!

1.. Punch out 8 scalloped circles.. 4 plain & 4 patterned paper..2.. Fold each one in half..3.. Glue each one on top of the next, alternating between patterned & plain ones..
4.. Make a large loop at one end of a piece of thread & add 3 glass beads, 1 at the top & 2 to hang at the bottom of the ornament..secure at the end with a knot..
5.. Add some sticky strip to middle of the scallops & then close the scalloped circle around your thread, making sure the last one is glued so it sticks together
DONE!!!Our scalloped punch has got to be our favourite tool at the moment...If you'd like to buy one they are on page 86/87 of the catalogue & if you buy one from us in the next week (before 4th Dec) we'll give you FREE P&P!!!!

Thanks for looking xxx

They are so pretty! I really regret not buying the scalloped circle punch now, I'm gonna have to go to Hobbycraft or something and get one as it's something I really need! Less than a week til the class and I cannot wait!!
