Kids Make - Christmas Note Books, an Ideal Gift - Articles Surfing
Little notebooks are so handy to jot down messages, phone numbers, shopping lists and appointments. Little note pads can be kept in handbags, or next tot he telephone, on a desk, in school bags and all other sorts of places. Being this useful, a nice note book would make a great Christmas for Mum, Dad, your sister or Granny, Your Auntie, Uncle, the neighbours, your teacher or friend and anyone who may need to jot things down from time to time.
Buy a small, soft covered note pad, don't spend too much because it's going to be re-vamped.
To make the Rudolf note book, start off by using a grey piece card to cut out two identical antlers. Stick these out from the top of the note pad so that they hang off the top of the pad. Next cover the front cover of he pad in brown paper, covering the bottoms of the antlers. This creates Rudolf face. Stick on two white ovals for eyes. Use a felt tip pen to draw on some pupils. Cut out a large circle from some red paper. You guessed it! That's Rudolf's nose. Stick it down towards the bottom of the pad. You can stick some red glitter to Rudolf's nose to make it shiny.
To make the Christmas tree note book, First cover the front of the note pad in green paper. Field a piece of green card (the same size as the notebook) in half vertically and cut out a Christmas tree shape. Stick sequins to the Christmas tree and sprinkle on some glitter if you wish. Stick to the Christmas tree to the note pad with a line of glue down the fold of the Christmas tree, so that it stands out slightly from the pad. To Finnish it off, cut out a star and stick it to the top of the Christmas tree.
Remember, not to use too much glue. You don't want to stick all the note pad pages together.
When you get started you will have lots more ideas of other delightful Christmas designs that you can apply to a note pad. Your friends and family will love one of these cute little stocking fillers, gone on why not make a couple.
