creative make and take...

saturday was SO fun...
 
i had such a nice group of girls at my house for a get together to make things... supplies and tasty treats were provided... they just had to show up and be ready to create!
 
it was so much fun gathering all of the supplies needed to complete the projects and setting up the different stations for the girls to work at...
 
this was the bunting station... i lovthese colors together... 
they're so cheery! 
 
the second project for the night was this christmas tree canvas... the girls had felt and fabrics and trims to choose from to make their canvas their very own...
 
{this is the sample canvas that i made up}
 
and there was wrapping in a jar... which was one of my favorite parts of the night... i love to make gift tags, to hand stamp and to go through baubles and trims and put them all together to make something cute...
this neat, old storage piece had a bunch of ribbons, trims, bottle brush trees, deer, gift tags, bakers twine, ball fringe, to and from stamps...
craft stickers, patterned card stock, paper doilies...
 washi tape, letter stampers, etc. to choose from...
and tiny clothespins to add to their tags... some left them natural and some glittered them...
{this is the jar that i put together for marina's teacher... i'm going to tuck in a gift card, and some other little things for her... love the idea of making something so cute out of a recycled container}
 
everyone got to take home this merry and bright printable...
{you can find it here}
 
the night started off kind of quiet with everyone very focused on their projects...
it was fun to see what each girl chose to use from what was provided...
busy at work...
 
and in the end... they made some really cute things unique to them :)
i really enjoy having get togethers at our home... it was such a nice night for all of us to just relax, meet some new friends and make some cute things... can't go wrong with that...

i already can't wait to have another night like this... we might even have to break out the sewing machine :)

nice job, girls!

what are your favorite types of projects to make?
