Hi, Arielle back with a fun little activity for the whole family! My kids love their elves and after seeing ideas on Pinterest and finding this fun example on Ms. Chiddos blog, I decided to make a template and have a little holiday fun!

Supplies:

  • Your digital kit – I used Deena Rutter’s Jolly Holiday Papers
  • The template below (Pick up the freebie here: Archive. I added the filled template so that you could clip papers to it in Photoshop.)
  • Adhesive, I used ATG tape and glue
  • Ribbon, buttons and cotton balls
  • Scissors
  • A picture of your pretty face!

Step 1 – Start by setting up your document to print. The templates are 8 1/2″ x 11″, and 300 dpi. You can either print out the outlined template to layer over your patterned papers for trimming out the pieces or use the filled template to layer and clip your papers.

Step 2 – The hat measures almost 4″ wide, so size your picture accordingly. When you take the photo, try to pull your hair back, so your face will be easier to cut out.

Step 3 – Print everything out and trim out the pieces. You’ll also need 2 long rectangles for your legs. I just used leftover white paper from the page I cut apart.

Step 4 – Now for the fun – assemble! Add buttons, ribbon, glitter, cotton balls – whatever you like! Have fun and personalize!

As you can see – my two kiddies had a ton of fun picking out their papers and accessories for their elves, it was a lot of fun for the whole family! If you get a chance to make these, I would love for you to come leave a link here on this post – I would LOVE to see them! Have fun and I hope you have a VERY CRAFTY and MERRY Christmas! God bless you and your family this wonderful season!
