From the looks of the calendar, we’re at the halfway point to Christmas, if you can believe it. What has your family been making so far for the holidays? Have you made anything yet – maybe tried one of our Christmas tree crafts? With gifts to buy and school parties to get ready for, there may not always be a lot of extra time to get in some just-for-fun Christmas making. But don’t worry – you and your children still have plenty of time to craft! And if you’ve got the right supplies to get the job done, you’ll have a merry, merry time.
Today I’ve got a few last-minute craft supplies from Stampin’ Up! that you can use this month and beyond.
While this set is definitely meant for Christmas, it includes such fun and whimsical sayings that it’s one you’ll want to have in your family’s stamping collection. This typographical collection is ideal for cards and gift tags.
I like this kit for a lot of reasons. It’s a project that seems like it was almost meant for families to work on together. Grown-ups can tackle the more challenging part of assembling the wreath for little hands (gluing on the delicate paper leaves), while smaller crafters can work on the seasonal decorations that hang from the center of the wreath.
The kit is paired with the Cheer All Year Photopolymer Stamp Set, leaving you with stamps to use for every season beyond Christmas.
The clear stamps are mounted on an acrylic stamping block and paired with its coordinating diecut shape, so it’s great for beginning stampers.
Using this small multipurpose liquid glue, little hands can add small details, like sequins and glitter, to the stamped papers.
While the paper leaves on the wreath base don’t change from season to season, the decorations in the center do, making this a project your family can work on all year long.
There are two fun Christmas-themed stamps in this set, but more importantly there are a lot of cute winter-minded snowman and penguin stamps here! The small accessory stamps can be used to dress winter friends that will never once share the same outfit.
