Kids just love playing outside so why not let it snow in the classroom too! I made these classroom bulletin board decorations for a friend of mind who teaches Grade 2 students. At the same time the Cricut Cardz Challenge this week is to create something using the letter "S" and any cartridge. I certainly made lots of "S" objects - snowman, snowflakes, snow, skater, sled and students.
I cut most of the images from my Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge. There are a lot of fun images to choose from. The snowflakes were cut using Martha Stewart's snowflake punch. I pressed the snowflakes in VersaMark ink and then sprinkled them with Stampin Stuff Winter Wonderland opaque glitter which I set using a heat embossing tool.
The mittens were made a bit larger and I cut these from the Designer's Calendar cartridge. In the classroom, students can earn a mitten each time they do something nice for someone else. It's hard to keep students motivated the month before Christmas and every little bit of fun to keep them on track is helpful. I know they will love them.
Why not head over to Cardz TV with Mary and enter your creation into the Cricut Cardz Challenge. Don't forget - it has to be something beginning with the letter "S" and using any cartridge. So go have some fun!
