Skates in Christmas & Winter Decorating & Free French Script Skate Image


Glittered Up Skate
Skates are a popular motif these days.  Many of us are using them in our Christmas and winter decorating and crafts. Are you? These are some of my favorite inspirations pictures.  I can't decide between them. I want to try them all!

 I really liked the glittered up skates but wasn't ready to commit. I decided to make a  cut out pair of skates and glitter them up instead. Cheap. Cheerful. Fun. I used heavy white paper and cardboard from a cereal box because it was what I had at hand. Foam core would work great. The less I spent the better, since I wanted them to be disposable.


I am going to try a pair cut from brown paper - I'll let you know how they turn out.


 Here is how I am using  my glittered up paper skates.



I made a French script version also. I think these would make nice tags.



Every gift which is give, even though it be small, is in reality great if it is given with affection.
