Christmas In July Project

Sharing a trash~formation project with you.....Turning an old metal serving tray into a Christmas tray for Santa's milk and cookies. I started with old magazines and books that you can cut up......searched for and cut out small Christmas related pictures.....clip, clip, clip. I then began the tedious task of cutting out the pictures, making each a separate picture...snip, snip, snip! You gotta have good eyes for this and a lot of patience. It's never to early to get started on those Christmas projects and the shopping. I do my shopping all throughout the year using a list of pratical things from which my daughter provides to me for her and her husband. It makes shopping so much easier and you can spread the expense over 10 or so months. It also gives you time to search for the item and get the best price. Be watching for my completed Christmas in July Project. I also sell this item at craft shows.......Happy shopping and crafting!
