I am very excited to have been invited to be a part of the Passionately Artistic team. For my first post I have made a little Christmasy hot chocolate holder/ ornament. I made a little trifold card and used the scalloped oval nestie to cut the top then distressed all the edges. To add a little pizazz I punched the edge of some red plaid for the inside pocket and used scalloped ovals to mount the gingerbread men on. I cut out several gingerbread men and decorated them with dimensional paint. I used a wheel for the little strip of gingerbread men and watercolored them, stitched onto a piece of recycled paper to form the slide off closure. I am one of pre teens teachers at our Church and I have about 2o-25 kids. Over half of these precious kids live in very disfunctional homes. I am making one for each of them. Its a little fun something I can do that wont be too costly and I'm hopefully they can hang them up and have for Christmas morning.
