UKScrappers asked if any shop owners would be interested in submitting a Christmas project for their homepage.

I asked my daughter, Angie, if she would like to do this and she immediately said yes. As a full time Community Nurse and almost full time carer for her Grandson, Oliver, she would have loads of time wouldn't she. :) Well she came up with this clipboard decorated and called Ollies Christmas Wishlist.

If you would like to make obne here are the instructions, and  i think we have most of the products in our shop:)

Cut paper to size (Crate Paper Snow Day Collection) & mat on Red CS

Paint edges of clipboard with Silver (Adirondack Dabber)

Adhere paper to clipboard

Apply wet glue to clip & cover with Fun Flock

Punch holes through clipboard for ribbon using BigBite

Add title to tag/label & adhere to clip

Stamp & cut out Reindeer (Sizzix Stamp& Die Cut 657780) & adhere

Punch out Snowflakes from Metallic CS & adhere with foam pads

Place 'Wish List' under clip & replace year after year

Merry Christmas Everyone
