Cut Paper Snow Globes
This cute lesson turned into Holiday cards for Miss L's penpal class. First, Miss L took a full body photo of each child in class. Then I brought in some patterned paper that I had already drawn a circle (coffee can lid size)on the back of and each child cut out the circle of the paper they chose, as well as the photo of themselves.
Out of scratch colored paper they made a "stand" for their snow globe. They glued that and the circle onto the front of their card. The only other project requirement was that they had to create something else in the globe with their photo and they had to create it out of detailed cut paper. Ideas were - Santa Claus, deer, Christmas trees, penguins, snowmen, etc. After they glued on their cut paper element and their photo, they were allowed to apply some "3D snow" (white puffy paint I made with shaving cream) and glitter.
These turned out darn cute and were surprisingly easy to make!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
