Christmas #BostikBlogger Crafts

| 27 Comments

This is our third month as a #BostikBlogger and we have received another great box full of craft goodies. We were keen to get started on some Christmas crafts.

I wanted to make a special card for my Nana and Grandad, and chose a foam Christmas Tree shape to glue some jewels on to, and I drew on some tinsel with the fab glitter pens that we were sent. The ‘fine and wide glue pen’ is a great glue pen, with two different size nozzles each squeezing out clear glue.

We then glued my Christmas Tree on to a piece of folded red card. What do you think?

Next, I wanted to make a present for my biggest sister MeeMee, who is away at University, and I miss her very much. Mummy had a Kilner jar that I could use. Mummy helped me, and cut out a red felt circle for the lid. I glued on a silver heart which I chose especially for her.

We then glued some pretty ribbon which I chose, around the jar, using glu dots from an earlier #BostikBlogger craft box we had been sent. Mummy wrote on a little fabric leaf , and cut a hole in the end of it to make a tag which we tied on to the jar with a glittery red pipe cleaner. I then filled it with sweeties! Isn’t it a lovely present for MeeMee?

In our craft box there were some blank cards, and we have wanted to make reindeer handprint cards for ages, so this is what we did!

Mummy mixed green and red paint, then added blue which made a really dark brown. We added yellow paint to make it lighter. I pressed my hand into the paint, and the onto the card. After the paint dried, we drew black eyes on him, and stuck on a glittery red pom pom nose.

TIP – if you are planning on making these hand print cards with a three year old like me, have lots of practise runs on non important paper first. And Mummy – asking me not to wiggle or move my fingers means, guess what? I will wiggle and move them 😉 After a few tries and Mummy’s face turning the same colour as Rudolph’s nose, here is our finished card. I am sorry, there are no other photos recording this experience!

  11. Well those sure are some fun craft ideas. We don’t do a ton of crafting in this house because I’m just not very good at it. But I think my kids would love making the reindeer handprints. Surely I couldn’t mess that one up.
