The holiday getaway season is below and it is a good time to locate a Xmas-themed job to operate on. I’ve obtained one particular for you, and I’m calling it The Twelve Pages of Christmas.

I typically save tags from Xmas presents, items of very wrapping paper, or greeting cards. I have bought a huge envelope filled with these issues, waiting around for an option to use them. Wouldn’t it be nice to pull them out and use them to collages some holiday break-themed pages?

This is what I was imagining when I set together The Twelve Pages of Xmas

The plan is to use 3 sheets of paper, folded in fourths, to develop 12 webpages of a gluebook. After your 12 webpages are assembled, there is a collage assignment for each individual web page. Here is webpage a single, so you get the notion:

My sample paper was wrapping paper from final yr 😉

The gluebook internet pages are not that large (about the size of a passport) so it is much better to maintain the assemblage less complicated by employing just a couple features. I have kept my paper picks to 3 parts. You can constantly embellish afterward with some rubber stamping or other little paper items.

A kit to get you begun, or Do-it-yourself

For $15, I am offering a downloadable package that contains the blank gluebook internet pages with the assignments labeled at the bottom, a sheet of wonderful tags (have you received some vibrant ribbons at property?), and some tear sheets for decorating your handles. It provides you every thing you need to have to get started suitable absent, creating and filling your 12 webpages of Christmas collages. You will also get obtain to a brief 10-minute video to go around everything.

You are also welcome to make a gluebook employing your have resources and holiday getaway-themed ephemera with no the kit. I will be executing a YouTube livestream on December 6th at 9am, where I will show you how to construct the gluebook using everyday paper. I will also supply all 12 assignments at that time so that you can total the collages making use of all of your very own objects. Right after the livestream, I will submit the recording on-line for any individual who skipped it.

Doesn’t that audio like pleasurable? It is time to get your holiday paper scraps! I have assigned the hashtag #mm12webpages for this undertaking. When individuals start off posting their creations, you will be capable to discover them conveniently on YouTube or Instagram.
