Christmas Crafting with Tiger Items

Last week I happened to go into our local Tiger store and I spotted some lovely Christmas ornaments which I bought not really knowing what we were going to do with them.  But as  it happened my daughter ended up under getting sick so so she decided to use the ornaments in some easy Christmas crafting activities.  So was really not feeling that good so she kept it very simple but I must admit the cards that both kids ended up making are very effective.

We used some glitter paint that we also bought from Tiger and our Sharpies together with a few crafting jewels and some card that we had at home.

With the ornaments she first started my using the glitter paint by itself but then we decided that it was more effective to add the glitter paint over an already coloured item – so the kids first coloured in with their Sharpies and then added the glitter paint on top.

You do need to let the glitter paint dry properly – we actually left ours overnight to make sure we did not smudge all the extra details the kids added in.

My son also add some crafting jewels that I had onto a few of his ornaments.

For the Cards we just started off by glueing some of the ornaments that the kids had decorated directly onto cards.

With the Christmas Bauble card we cut up and glued some satin ribbon as the string on which the baubles are hanging.

My son also liked the idea of using some corrugated card that I had and he even decided that he could use the ornaments which had not been decorated.

And just for fun we also used a piece of card on which we had bled some tissue paper (if you have not done this before my kids love it – bleeding tissue paper).  The bleeding tissue paper normally ends up with a very pretty pattern so we choose to use plain ornaments on top of it.
