May Flowers Kid's Craft

Friday, May 14, 2010

I am calling this a kid's craft because it is very easy, but even big kids might like to do it. This big pink May flower is cute, but I think we need a design for the frame every month. They can be changed at the beginning of every month.

Here is what you need:
  • a frame ( got this at the dollar store, it is 5" x 7")
  • a piece of scrapbooking paper the size of the frame
  • glitter (for this project, I used black, hot pink, and orange)
  • white adhesive fun foam
  • white craft glue
  • flat paintbrush
  • scissors
  • chalk pencil, not white
  • glue dot or some kind of repositional tape
Try this:
1. Take the frame apart. Glue the scrapbooking paper to the frame backing. Brush glue on frame. Sprinkle black glitter on while glue is wet. Let the glue dry, reassemble the frame.
2. Print out the flower pattern. Adjust it to fit your frame. Trace the pattern lines with chalk pencil. Turn pencil side down on fun foam. Rub the back of the paper, transferring lines to fun foam. Cut out the flower. Transfer the center to fun foam. Cut it out.
3. Remove paper backing and sprinkle glitter over adhesive: pink flower, orange center. Glue the center to the flower. Let dry.

4. Attach the flower to the center of the frame.

Cute! Change the color of your frame and paper if you like. This would be a cute gift for Grandma.

Stay tuned for a June design to change to when May is over.

Glitter on!
