Crafting with Jack

We have had the privilege of having our Grandson Jack stay with us this weekend, although he has chattered so much that he has our ears bleeding it has been a pleasure.

Jack loves to get involved, he likes to work alongside his Granda and he calls him his building buddy (so funny).

The other side to Jack is that he loves to craft with me. I showed a card that he recently coloured and made here which was his first handmade card.

Today we decided to make 3 Christmas cards for his teachers and we decided on winter wellington boots.

Here he is showing just how very clever he is with his finished cards.

And a close up of all of them too.

He loved the snowflake background paper for this one and he also loved the glittery pom-poms, he added glitter glue and stuck everything down onto the card, I helped with the cutting out and the ribbon bows.

Jack Craft3

This one he loved the colours and the addition of the bells that jingle jangle, he even coloured the sole of the boots.

Jack Craft2

This one he loved the Christmas trees and added a line of glitter down each tree and tied the bell onto the green sparkly cord and added the big pom-pom border.

Jack Craft4

I have a feeling that he will be so proud to give his teachers cards that he made himself.

And he certainly SHOULD be proud. They're all gorgeous! I think maybe he's inherited some of your artistic talent, Jak.

They´re absolutely gorgeous all 3 of them Jack, and youdid a fantastic job on all these sweetie. I´m very sure, your teachers will safe these forever, as I bet they don´t get such great handmade cards every year either. They´re really beautiful and well made, and I absolutely LOVE them too, especially the first blue one as that color is my favorite color and I too just love snowflakes, but all 3 are so beautiful. You sure take after your grandma and become a very talented crafter too.
