Crafting talent ...

...  I promised some pictures of what our Cubs and Scouts made last night - so here they are.


Cards made by our Cubs (aged between 8 - 10)  - sorry it's not the best photo in the world!!
The card was reasonably simple - a collage Christmas Tree.  They started with a plain triangle onto which they glued stripes of paper - all types, colours and patterns.  The excess paper was cut away and then they added some bling using a glue pen to trace lines on the tree.  The tree was dipped into some glitter - and hey presto - tinsel lines!!  Finally they punched out a star (which was/was not) glittered and glued this to the top of the tree.  And they added a greeting and wrote inside the card. 


Cards and Plunge Candles made by our Scouts (aged 10½ - 14)
The Scouts also made some plunge candles.  This was great fun and the resulting candles were amazing - they look so much better in real-life.

We all had a brilliant evening.  That;s all for this evening.  I must go and play in my craftroom - lots of cards and tags to make. 

On a totally unrelated subject - Strictly Come Dancing!!  What a fab show tonight - I want Pamela to win because she's so amazing, but I also want Kara and/or Scott to win.  Kathryn wants Matt and Aliona to go through to the final - I think Kathryn wants to be Aliona!!  Oh well, we'll have to wait and see what tomorrow brings. 

See you tomorrow.

Isn't it brilliant how different the cards are? All individual & I think your tinsel was probably very messy & no-one will have escaped the glitter....... even us ancient crafters of 50 can be found with sticky squares glued to our slippers at times........never mind glitter in the bathroom.
Hope you've had a good play.......
