25. This Christmas I spent some time making special handmade cards for some very special girls. I teach a girl's club class for 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade girls every Friday evening at my church. We have so much fun together and it is always a highlight of my week!
Each week I like to prepare a craft for them to do together. Sometimes, it goes along with our lesson...most of the time, it is just for fun.
So our last class before Christmas vacation, we had a snow storm and had to cancel...leaving me with a winter craft...for no one to do. Well, I got to work and made them personal for each girl and sent them the craft to construct at home. I found this idea in the Family Fun Magazine several years ago. You can find the instructions here. It really would be fun to make any type of make-your-own card...maybe for Valentines Day and fill the bag with items to decorate a card with hearts.
Here are pictures of my handywork.
Cutting out the shapes...I needed a Martha Stewart circle cutter gadget!
I placed each item in a zip bag and then taped the bag to a window card.
Here is the finished product. The girls had fun making them!
It is Friday, and tonight we are talking about Grooming. You know body shapes, face shapes, clothing and cleanliness. My friend, who helps me in class, is a beautician by trade. She will be giving the girls hair makeovers tonight!!! Exciting!
