Kissing Thaumatrope

Kissing Thaumatrope
A few years ago, I thought that it would be so fun to make Joe a kissing thaumatrope for Valentine's Day. Like so many of my BRILLIANT ideas, I promptly forgot all about it. Until recently, when I saw this thaumatrope-on-a-stick on Made by Joel, and it reminded me that I had to try it. Even though they're not done, I'm showing you my work in progress now, just in case you want to use this idea to make your very own thaumatrope valentines. Are you wondering what I am talking about? On one side it looks like this: On the other side it looks like this: When you spin the stick, it looks like this: Movie magic! I'm making some for my three little Valentinos, too. If you do make your own, please send me a picture! Materials: Paper, cardboard, double-stick tape or glue, round chopstick or kebab stick, photo prints or drawings of kissers in profile.

We had a few technical set backs but produced what we wanted to a high quality by the deadline and worked as a team well.

Ten minute no-sew recycled t-shirt bag! Tutorial time! I got a gig teaching a recycled t-shirt project at the library a few months ago, with a request for a recycled tee bag – the only bags I’d made from tees in the past had required sturdy sewing, and I didn’t want hand-sewing to be the only thing holding the bottom closed in a class version of the bags, so I started brainstorming about some kind of hand-sewing-friendly or no-sew bag idea…. and here’s what I came up with! The simplest version of these bags is great for smaller tees, or the more light-weight kind of girl-tees – just turn the bottom of the shirt into a drawstring and tie it closed! fabriquer un sac en papier Gift bags made from newspaper is a great idea for birthday parties or weddings!
