Christmas project with a helping hand...

My eldest daughter came home from school on Friday and informed me that I had to make her a Christmas box before Monday morning. Say what?!?!?! After a few phone calls to other mothers to confirm this was actually the case, we went shopping for supplies. But I refused to do the whole thing myself as it was meant to be a school project. So I covered a large silver box in Kaisercraft papers, and added some twill ribbon around the top of the lid, to make it easier for little hands to grip it. I then cut out about 20 or so Chritsmas trees for my daughter to adhere to the box at a later date. I supplied her with pearls, rhinestones, alpha stickers, kindy glitz, photos and double sided tape. I then sent the box and all the supplies to school with her, so she could finish her projest in the classroom. Anyway, today the box came home finished (so I could photograph it). It goes back to the school tomorrow.

Here's a side view of the box. Malayla stuck on all these trees by herself, and decorate them with bling. Did I mention how happy she is with her box? She had a huge grin on her face when she showed it to me. It was just the sweetest thing to see her so happy with her handy-work.

Well, at least this is one Christmas project completed. My wreath is still waiting...(-:
