Crafting with Hannah and Olivia

Last Sunday Hannah and Olivia; two of our granddaughters came over to make some Christmas crafts

While I was making pizza for lunch the girls  made  Christmas trees using  a Styrofoam cone and  Stampin' Up! retired Organza ribbon

 12 year old Hannah made her tree was made using  ribbon in green, pink and cream

Olivia age 10, made her tree using green, blue and hot pink ribbon

After lunch the girls made a hanging snowman. I found the idea in a craft magazine. I made one ahead of time using Stampin' Up! products.
Circles #2 Die and Whisper White card stock for the body
Candy Cane Christmas Designer Fabric for the scarf
Brights Designer Buttons
Tangerine Tango card stock for the nose
Basic Black card stock for the eyes and mouth
Owl Builder punch to make the eyes and mouth
Non Stampin' Up!
Elastic jewelry cord
Glue gun and glue

I cut out two each  of the three circle and applied hot glue to the bottom circle, then the cord, more hot glue and the top circle,
 leaving a space in between the circles

The girls are busy making Christmas ornaments using Stampin' Up! Window Sheets, stamps and coloring the images on the opposite side the image was stamped with Stazon Black Ink.
In the fore ground, you can see Olivia's dangling snowman.

We were trying to finish before Mom and Dad  came to pick them up and forgot to take more photos of their work of art.
It was a fun afternoon. Grammy, me, enjoyed seeing how each of the girls used their imagination and how their projects came out different from each others.

Happy Stampin'
