This little girl can cut it!

When Courtney was here last Saturday, we decided to do a little 'project'. Just a couple days before that, Jess had posted about some cute little vintage-looking Christmas boxes that could be printed and assembled. So we printed 3 of them. These 2 are Courtney's, and she cut them out entirely by herself. Just look at that cutting job!! (Click on the pic to see it larger.)

She did nearly as well with her little scissors as I did on mine with a ruler and an exacto knife! She even got right into the corners and made them nice and square! And she's not even 5 years old yet! I was amazed!

Here she looks a bit pleased with herself, too. Or maybe she was just admiring the bright, pretty colors and imagining how they'd look when we were finished.

So... here's how they looked when we finished!

Pretty cute, huh?

They weren't very sturdy, as I didn't use very heavy paper, but they were fun, anyway. And she drew a picture and folded it up to put inside one of hers.

A little crafter-in-the-making, for sure!
