Quick - Easy-Cute and for the kids.

This week's blogger's challenge is to use punches or diecuts.  Well this is perfect since I have a Mommy and Me class at my church tomorrow and I wanted another quick and easy idea.  The kids range from 4-10.  Big gap.  We are making the photo holder and desktop calendar from this post and then I thought we could make these too.  The sayings are too cute.



Here is a picture of one in my son's book.




In case you can't read the sayings here they are...

If your a bookworm, we are made for each other.  apple
Lemon help you keep your place.  lemon
Berry yourself in books. Reading is sweet.  strawberry
Orange you glad you are reading this book?  orange--not shown.

Stamps: Tart and Tangy
Paper: Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: yoyo yellow
Other: markers, gazzle cutter for bookmarks, circle punches, computer for words.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend.  I know I will.

I have to believe that every single child who gets to do this will love it! And then to have something of their own in their books -- reading is the best, after stamping, of course!
