Although we have been keeping up with our ornaments at home, I lost track of the days and forgot to post them on the 20th on December. Here are the ornaments from days 16 - 20.

It's Christmas time and we are sending gifts to Lillian's teachers at school. A little thank you for everything they do.
I decided to alter some Maya Road tins. Here are the finished projects.
Of course each tin was filled with goodies.
Lillian spent a day with me on Thanksgiving break and made the gift bags for each teacher also.

This one Lilli designed all on her own.
I discovered later, that the fingerprints in the middle were done with my lipstick.
This was my favorite ornament this week. I love to make crafts from foam sheets.

My plan is to show the ornaments Lillian has been making every 5 days. However, this one was so much fun I took pictures to show a tutorial.
Think Snow Shaker Box.
We started with the plastic case that was left after opening some brads. I used the chipboard piece to measure for the cardstock she will need.
After I cut the cardstock. Lillian stamped a snowman border and Think Snow saying with black ink.
When she was finished with that step, she set it aside for later. I showed her how to apply the alcohol inks without using a handle.
She used them to add color to the back and side panels.
On a second piece of cardstock she wrote her name, the year, and the age she is now. (Her idea)
Next she used a glue stick to attach the cardstock pieces to the front and back of the chipboard piece that came in the case.
She used the back of a stamp to smooth the paper out, after she attached it. (Again, her idea)
Before she lined the case with her cardstock, she added some chalk for the snow. She used a q-tip to apply it in different colors.
Then she used a glitter pen to draw attention to the snowmen.
Once that was done, she added a small amount of ivory Flower Soft to the inset in the plastic container.
She laid the cardstock piece on top of that and I applied clear glue around the edges and closed the lid. I helped with this part because we didn't want the Flower Soft to come around to the back side of the ornament. (Liili took this picture for me.)
Here is a picture of Lilli with her finished "shaker" ornament.
