Do It Yourself Christmas
This Christmas was very different in many ways of course.
We decided to celebrate it in our own way, just a nice lunch together with some presents and (dreadful, but fun) poems.
However to make it a bit more fun, we decided that the presents should be self-made!
We had a quick ‘lottery’ and I ended up with my sister, Lanny.
Lanny is a very busy lady but she loves relaxing through countryside walks, making jigsaw puzzles and taking care of her cats.
The last two gave me an idea and I began to collect old cardboard…
I made a simple drawing of a kind of cat and began to cut it out.
Next came little cardboard supports.
If I just had to construct it myself it would have been dead easy but the trick was to make a building kit of a paper cat!
At the local supermarket I found some flowery gift paper, perfect.
Luckily Lanny had given me some glue which I needed for the outsides of the cat…
I put it together a few times jut to see if it held together and it did!
Almost forgot the cat’s whiskers!
Christmas lunch was a success, we had a good time together and I helped Lanny a bit with putting the cat together.
She was very pleased with the result and it now has suitable place of honor in her living room!
