On the second day of Christmas!

I wanted to make some type of paper-craft Christmas ordiment. When I saw a no mess glitter project on No Time For Flash Cards, I knew I had found the perfect one. Unfortunately we did not experience the no mess promise, but we did have a fun time.
"It is shake 'n glitter and I helped!"

I loved how I didn't have any "educational" intentions with this project but both boys started making designs and ended up making letters.

Having a little fun with the 'ol macro lens

 The basic jist is that you cut out ordainment shapes out of card stock. Then you give them some double sided sticky tape to make their designs. After they apply the tape, you put it in a plastic bag that contains glitter. Presto--you pull out a glittery ordainment.
 Add a hole punch, thread some glittery pipe cleaners, and hang on your tree,
Here is the final product!
P.S. Four laps down! Today I did it a lot faster too. Plus I have found that I have been sleeping better . . .
