Rainbows Christmas Workshop: 1st Gomshall, Peaslake and Shere Rainbows

Phew!! What a busy day!! I had a full day of teaching (all steam ahead in preperation for the January exams) and then straight off to 1st Gomshall, Peaslake and Shere Rainbows for a Christmas workshop!!!

It was the girls final meeting before Christmas and so i planned some christmas crafts for them to enjoy! They were all so creative and many of them adapted my original designs which i always love seeing!

It was a real challenge designing projects suitable for 5-7 year olds but i think it went well! All the girls seemed to have lots of fun making a christmas card, a cute little giftbox and some reindeer poop!!! Here's the projects:
First the Raindeer Poop:
A 'Real Red' 'Top Note' created using the 'Big Shot'. I typed the 'Reindeer Poop' label out on the computer and printed it on some 'Very Vanilla' cardstock, stamped the reindeer stamp in 'Soft Suede' ink (from a retired set - although you could use the 'Dasher' stamp from the current catalogue) and glued it on. I popped some chocolate (in this case some chocolate covered honeycomb) into a cellophane bad along with a Reindeer Poop poem (printed on 'Very Vanilla' card) and then stuck the topper on using some super 'Red Sticky Tape') The girls loved this project!!!
Next project was this cute 'Cherry Cobbler' 'Pillow Box' cute out using the 'big shot'. We wrapped some 'Old Olive' 'Satin Ribbon' around the 'Pillow Box'. Next we stamped the cute little penguin from the 'Polar Party' set in 'Basic Black ink. We coloured in his hat and scarf, beak and feet and then punched him out using the 'Scallop Circle Punch'. We stuck this onto the box using some 'Dimensionals'. Finally we popped a chocolate or two in them!!! The girls enjoyed that bit!!!

Final project was a Christmas card!! A 'Very Vanilla' cardbase. The Christmas tree has been made from some 'Old Olive' card that has been ran through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Perfect Pennants Die'. We decorated the tree using lots of stickers (non Stampin' Up!) The trunk was made from a little strip of 'Soft Suede' and the pot was made from some 'Real Red' card. The girls all created very different trees and even decorated their envelopes!!
 All in all we had a very lovely crafty time!!! Do you run a club or group who would like to do some crafting? E-mail me for some details of how to organise a workshop:
