Well, as always..weekends tend to make me disappear from the online world. I assure you that I am putting my time to good use though ;) Day 3 of the 12 days of Christmas Crafting and I am sad to say that I have no finished the Advent Calendar. Instead, I took the weekend to do some fun crafts with my son :)
Day 3 - Ornament
Isn't that adorable??
I used the freezer paper trick for ours. I just cut a piece of freezer paper down to 8.5x11 and ironed a piece of fabric to the shiny side. Then I positioned it in my printer so it printed on the fabric itself. I have the HP print/scan/copy machine so I put his drawing in the scanner and let him hit the copy button and watch his drawing get printed out on the fabric. he loves pulling his image off the freezer paper...it comes off so easily.
Now for the REALLY fun part. I let him help me sew it together!! He was in heaven :)
And to remember what it was that he had told me his picture was, I added it to the ribbon for hanging...
on the other side of the ribbon...
Easy-peasy! and Booger Bear loved doing it :)
