Each year (and doesnt matter how old they are :P ) I like to scrap a Christmas list for my girls that they can fill out, its a record of what they were thinking and wishing for in a particular year... and they laugh at some of their previous ones (just as they probably will laugh at these later on :lol: )

Sooo using these papers:

BoBunny Noel Joy
Echo Park Times&Seasons Red/Creamreverse side (doesnt show reverse in shop)
Echo Park Times&Seasons Lovely Notables

This is how they've turned out:

The alpha is Echo Park Season's Greetings Element Stickers
Lost and Found Union Square Favorites Trim Red Tinsel
I've mounted the numbers on foam tape and you can decorate the top of the list with ivy or pine if you've got stickers, or cut some out (print off the web etc) and add a couple of red bows :P

On a side note- with the Echo Park Times&Seasons Lovely Notables the numbers go up to six. Cutting out one line across of numbers gave me enough for two lists. (Good if you had many kids to create for!! :P ) Also this would be great for numbers on a december daily....

ALSO - how cool would it be after cutting out a line of numbers to flip the paper over and use as a cheap stencil for a banner with ink/mist!!!

These can be hung on a doorknob or anywhere.....

Show us here if you make up any lists :P

Love the tinsel and other embellishments, Mandy. Our lists lately have been really simple IE: an old envelope or scrap piece of paper :roll: Not really scrap-worthy.

A few years ago I made a cardstock decorated "stocking" for mine to put their wish lists into. I wonder where that's gone....

I'd still scrap those little ole envelopes :P !!

I wish the lists I made as a child/teenager were saved... what fun it would be now to see what I was wishing for when I was little! :biggrin:
