Card making with Christmas scraps!!

I found this great idea on Pinterest, it was my New Year's Resolution to join ... but I started a little early! :)
The original idea came from MudPieStudio.

This is a great idea for leftover scrapbook paper, or even wrapping paper.  For these actual cards I shared my NEW stack of designer paper.  My kids (ages 3-8) made a bunch for teachers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins!

Make little tree trunks out of brown paper. Punch out yellow stars (so glad I had a star punch!)

Then cut out various sized strips of paper from a variety of patterned paper!  I separated each stack into a pile and had the kids pick one piece from each stack and go to town with the glue sticks! They had so much fun making them. I got such joy out of sharing MY card-making stuff (I don't do that often) and we had some really cute cards to share with friends and family!  I was so afraid that I was going to end up with a bunch of the same patterns at the end, but they mixed them up very nicely!!

linking up with The CSI Project as a great project for crafting with leftover Christmas items.

So it's past Christmas now, but you might just want to "Pin it" for next year! :)
