Crafting With Kids + Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello! I will be back for the rest of My Favorite Crafty Things series soon… but in the meantime I wanted to share a few teacher Christmas gifts that I put together with my 4-year-old daughter.

My kids enjoy crafting with me… especially if they get to color. Well today I decided to film some of what we created. These will be teacher gifts for Lila’s awesome teachers. She (age 4) was in charge of coloring and placement – I just followed along!

We used the newly-re-released Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn Merry Christmouse Stamps along with the Lawn Fawn Pizza My Heart Stamps. I figured the pizza images and cheesy mice would be fun teamed up with gift cards to a pizza place. We created a few boxes with the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Treat Box Die (this is awesome) and the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Envelope Die. Both are perfect for holding a gift card!

It is fun to mix and match stamps to make a gift card a bit more personal. And to get your kiddos involved! Don’t have kids? Offer to help out a neighbor mom or family member to make gifts with them.

BLOG HOP

Today’s post is also part of a fun blog hop (with some of my favorite friends) to celebrate the re-release of the Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp Merry Christmouse Stamp Set. This stamp set was release for a limited time last year… but by high demand, it is back!
