Anyone else on the great ‘Use It Up’ challenge right now?

I do tend to gift lots of my leftover/retired papers to my smallest sons’ school, but I invariably find that I have more than I’d like a group of 6 year olds to trash, so I try and use it up as much as possible on my own projects.

And this one, designed by my lovely Oliver on a recent school trip, is a great one for a Use It Up project. (for those who live in the East of England, the school trip was to Peterborough Museum, and Oliver absolutely loved it. We are planning a family trip there – it looks great on the website!)

So back to my project. Because I’d modelled mine on Oliver’s pop up toy, I wanted to keep the face/character idea going, and making mine much smaller with a 5 x 5″ (12.5 x 12.5cm) piece of paper and a candy cane, I got away with using our adorable Cookie Cutter stamp and punch set.

Just be careful and make sure your paper is the right way up….

So I hope you like it, and if you have smallies still at school (mine don’t finish until tomorrow afternoon), this is a great treat for them and their class mates.

  1. Cute gifts!!!

  2. Really cute project and one you could do with a class of Moms, or Mums, and their children. I like both versions, Oliver’s and yours.

  3. I really like these! We have a few little ones that visit and I think these would be a perfect little something for them. I’m even going to hang them on the tree and let them pick whichever one they like!

  4. Lisa Sylvia says:

    Very cute project. Oliver should be very proud of himself, he did an amazing job.

  5. Adorable and I love the back story about Oliver. Thanks for sharing the story and project with us.
