Charlie Grainger's story
Please take the time to have a look at the story of this little boy who's name is Charlie Grainger. I came across his story while buying some Ben 10 toys for Dylan and notice the money from the sale was going towards funding his trip to America to get Selective Dorsal Rhizothomy procedure. He is a little boy he deserves to have his story heard, with that in mind take a moment please to read it.

Foam Christmas tree
These pretty little decorations are a bit fiddly but are a nice home made touch to any crafters home
I used cookie cutters to draw round because that's what i had to hand and they were the size i wanted
These were cut out of packing foam(i have a lot to hand!)
Cover the shapes in pieces of tissue paper colour of your choice and use watered down PVA glue
A couple of layers of tissue paper make them look better, remember to leave to dry in between.
A voila Little Christmas decorations!

Lovely 3D Noel lettering
OK this is not a quick craft but well worth the effort and once you have mastered the craft knife you can try this with all sorts of words not just Christmas words.
OK you will need Printed lettering of your choice I used Noel
A sharp craft knife
Foam packing in sheets about an inch thick, this is so the letters will stand up
some coloured or patterned paper
Stick the lettering on to the foam
when dry cut out each letter carefully!! Lets make sure we keep our fingers please. The craft knife needs to be really sharp so that you cut through the letters and not have to saw through them.
This is the sort of thing that you will have after the letters have been cut out.
Now draw around the letter on the backside of the paper you want to cover the letters, remember to put the letters face down on the paper and then draw around them, not like i did and wasted half my patterned paper!!!
There you have it have a go you'll be glad you did!
