Crafting for Christmas

I am beginning to think about and organize for
Christmas.  Today, I made a few gifts for one of my granddaughters.  She is young and is learning to sew.  I had some old sewing supplies lying around and decided to spruce up a few of them for her.

I picked three wallpapers that looked nice together.  I cut them to fit over the items neatly.  I covered each piece of paper with packing tape while it was still flat.  Then I formed them around the items and taped them again.  I cut designs and initials as well. 

The pinking sheers were my mother’s, so they will be a great keepsake for her as she grows up.  The small thimble was mine as a child. 

It was a fun craft and hopefully, she will enjoy these for years to come.
