The 12 Days of Christmas

A Musical Game and a Gift

Part 1

In my family, music is a big deal in that we all love to sing. So, as part of our Christmas Day fun I have an idea for a musical game my family can all participate in.

12 Days of Christmas tags
In this post, I will share half of the artwork I am creating.

Everyone knows the song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas". Here are my Cricut-made versions of the first six days.

In the next post I will explain how the artwork will be used.

Day 1:     A Partridge in a Pear Tree

I did some research to find out what a these various birds really look like. Partridges are typically white with black and grey markings, and red crowns.

My partridge is a little big for the tree, but I did that on purpose. HE is the star of the show!

Day 2:     Two Turtle Doves

Turtle doves are native to Africa, Asia and Europe. In total, by the end of the song the recipient will have been given 22 turtle doves.

Perhaps because of Biblical references (especially the well-known verse from the Song of Songs), its mournful voice, and the fact that it forms strong pair bonds, Turtle Doves have become emblems of devoted love. 

3 French hens gift tag

Day 3:     Three French Hens

French hens are mostly white with brown, yellow and orange around their collars.
4 calling birds gift tag

Day 4:     Four Calling Birds

Also known as "colley birds" which are blackbirds

5 Golden rings gift tag

Day 5:     Five Golden Rings

6 geese a-laying gift tag

Day 6:     Six Geese A-Laying

Soon to come... days 7 to 12. Each one takes longer to make than the previous number because of the extra cuts needed.

Stay Tuned for part 2
