Christmas out of the box!

 Every Christmas I usually teach a workshop that involves Christmassy stuff. This year I got to teach it in my own classroom, and what comes out of what I show,and teach and what my pupils make , never ceases to make me smile. It is what makes teaching for me one of life's greatest pleasures. Thank you girls, you amazed me yet again!
This year I decided to use Tim's configuration boxes, but with a slightly different view on them. Take an individual box out of the box, ink it, paint, it, add a roof, chimneys,  baubles, angels, and a sweet snowman, lots of snow, and glitter, an Idea-ology tree, and a lamp, and you can create "Christmas out of the box". Here is a couple of views of mine.. (it was really hard to photograph it well) with more to come in another post....

 


 and here are the girls creating a great big creative mess!

 I loved this "village" of all of their creations.

Have a creative day today, and if you are passing us, pop in a and have a coffee with me.. this week I will be in the shop, as Mal is doing a bit of his own creating at our home!
