Rachel makes ... Christmas name cards

We have been inundated with Christmas cards, over 200 at the last count, we are very lucky and feel very loved.  The trouble is we only have room to hang about 150 around the house.  We don't worry though; every year I let Rachel pick her favourite ones and make christmasy pictures out of them.  This year however she's taken her creativity one step further, she's made .....

Christmas lunch name cards.

Here are her step by step instructions to making them.

1. You need to choose a nice picture on a Christmas card

2. Cut the picture out from the card, you can have some background round it if you want

3. Take the back of the card and fold it in half to be the stand, if you've cut the back of your card then just use some paper

4. Take the picture and Sellotape it to the stand so that the picture is nice and tall

5. Cut little pieces of paper for the name labels

6. Write the name of the person coming to Christmas lunch on the little pieces of paper

7. Sellotape the name label to the stand

8. There you go you've finished

9. Repeat steps 1 to 8 for every person coming to Christmas lunch

10. You (the child) need to lay them out on the table so all the adults know where to sit.

Here are the ones I made.

Have fun making yours.
