Last Minute Ornament

Need a last minute idea for an ornament?

I recently created a mini barn star ornament using a template from the Paper Barn Star class that was taught at Paper Pals. The template that you can get at the store is for three larger sized stars, so I just downsized the smallest one and cut out pieces to create a tree ornament sized star.

And, to make it a fun group project, I made it into a "Memory Star". On the back side of the paper pieces I wrote the year and listed a few different memories from 2010. This may become a fun tradition to create one each year!

If you'd like to make one, stop in to Paper Pals to get some christmas themed paper and the template. It's a fun project that kids and adults alike can work on this holiday season!

Merry Christmas from the Paper Pals Design Team!

Christmas Traditions Accordian Album

I had a truckload of fun creating this Album about some of our family Christmas/December traditions. I did not get them all laid out, so I put some on a list and tucked it in the family photo picture. Each lay-out has a little secret pull-out with journaling on it. I loved using all the paper and embellishments from Paper Pals. They had so many nifty things to choose from. I used leftover scraps from a " day-in-the-life" Christmas book I created to write something in each day for this month and then add pictures later. It was one of the funnest projects ever! I kept the lettering similar to add continuity and tried to keep every thing in sort of a semi square or rectangle in the middle of each page. If you want to get a close up it will be at the Paper Pals store in Pullman!
