Crafting with Kids

My husband and son were off at a Cub Scout cuboree camping trip this weekend, so it was just my daughter and myself.  It was really nice to spend quality time with her.  Yesterday, we made these paper ornaments, they were very easy to make.  My daughter cut and embossed blue metallic card stock using the Blossom 2 dies from Spellbinders.  For each ornament you will need to cut out two of the larger dies (in blue) then one smaller in white.  Before she cut out the white card stock, we printed off some digital stamps from Raindrop Echo designs, colored them in, then cut and embossed them.  She wanted to add a sentiment but we couldn't figure out where to put it, so we printed off a sentiment and attached it to the bottom of the ornament using twine.  I'm so proud of her, she even tied the bows herself.  If you have children, this was a lot of fun and an easy project to do.  I think I may enlist her more often to cut things in my Cuttlebug, I only had to show her once how to make the "correct" sandwich for embossing and cutting.

I think the pink is a neat color choice and I like the layout. Cool use of the blossom die too for the ornaments.
