Be Creative week day 1
So, so, sorry this took forever to post. I was wrestling with my internet for the ENTIRE day!
Anyways let's go on with the show, shall we?
The purpose for this special creative week is to share some fun ideas and projects that you can do to kick off your summer. Some of you might still have kids' in school but it won't be long till you can have "lazy days" and what better way to celebrate the beauty of Summer than with some projects, right?
So here's the deal, every day this week, I'll be sharing a project (some with instructions to copy) or ideas. I'd love for you to be inspired by them. If you happen to have the time to make the projects this week, upload it somewhere and share the link here and I'll put your name for a chance to get a rak/prize. Now if you don't have the time but came out with some type of inspiration from here, comment and I'll add your name in the rak too. So basically the more you play along (commenting or playing along with the projects) the more chances you have in getting a prize.
So are you ready???
Here's the first one......
"PLAY" MATCHING GAME
I got this idea from this site. I loved the concept of using your papercrafts supplies to create a fun game that your family, especially the kids, can enjoy. I modified mine from the original. I wanted it to be sturdy enough that it can be played more than once before it falls apart (my kids can be pretty rought on their board games) so I laminated each card with contact paper and cut it out with my pinking shears. The regular decorative edged scissors wasn't doing the trick for me.
The plan was to pick papers that have small and similar patterns that would be easy to match with each other so I picked
, flowers and text papers.
This is a great way to use up those scraps.
I stamped on the other side for balance and unity.
tie with a ribbon to finish off the project.
My kids LOVE using this game. This can also be a good hostess gift.
So there you have it. Easy peasy and something you and your kids' would sure enjoy.
Oh and please spread this fun thing/week that we're doing here at my blog to anybody you know that might be interested. I'm all about sharing ideas.
