They are 3 nephews and 1 niece along with 4 boy second cousins and 2 girl second cousins (My cousins kids!)
So thats 10 children that I need to give a christmas gift too and of which I like to "make" them something special each year. Now two of them are under 1 so they didn't keep a kit as such just part of it.
Past gifts have been:
Family Summer Fun Buckets - Just add water! (water bombs, water guns, etc)
Individual Treasure Boxes for keeping speacial things in
Canvas with name and photo on it
So I had been
Thats when little people are brought in to help with the gluing!
Liam holding onto the tin while I apply the glue
Roughed up a bit
Held together waiting for the glue to dry
I also roughed them up a bit with sandpaper to help the glue and paper adhere together.
I had already measured the tins before gluin and cut some black paper to wrap around the tins, they are slightly longer than the paper I had so I needed to add a little bit onto the end.
Double sided tape used to add the extra.
Once that was done I "banded" them all in different colours along with co-ordinating lids and attached a front label
All banded and waiting for the front label
I also used stickers to write there name on the lids.
Close up of the label. - I am still on the look out for larger ice cream themed stickers to add to the label as I think therse are too small - not worried if I don't as I am sure the kids don't care.
Pictured is 100's & 1000's, mini M&Ms, Baking jelly beans, Chocolate Hail, and some other sprinkles
I couldn't resist there cellophane bags and filled them up with mini marshmallows!
Now every ice Cream Sundae needs a special bowl to be enjoyed in don't they:
This size one was for my cousins children and they are in this blue, green and a pink one.
These ones are for my nephews - all blue ones
The all also got a spoon with there name engraved on them
The larger dishes got the longer dessert spoons and the smaller ones just a normal teapsoon.
I then hunted thru my other
Here they are already and waiting for there label - JUST ADD ICE CREAM!!!!
