How to: wax paper and crayon fall leaves

How to: wax paper and crayon fall leaves
so this last week i decided to quit ignoring the elephant in the room, and acknowledge that fall is... well basically at my door step. the leaves are starting to show a hint of change and with that change came my "NO! NOT YET!" these leaves were made just like you used to make those stain glass windows with wax paper and crayon shavings. you can hang them, you can place them prettily to dress up any surface, and well you can just place them on your windows as well.WHAT YOU WILL NEED: *wax paper.*scissors*iron*towels (so that you don't ruin your ironing board)*paper towels (so you don't ruin your iron) *fall colored crayons that have seen better days *leaf template (right click hit save as and then print off. make sure you make them fit your picture screen so it doesn't cut off any of the leaf. i made mine as a 4 by 7 picture) when you have your two colors shaved on, place the second piece of wax paper on top making a sandwich. cut out your leaves. ahh the life of a crafting mom. enjoy!

Apple playdough recipe with real apples, edible, scented apple paint, glow in the dark window clings and homemade fall spices crayon candles. We can’t wait for full on autumn season! But last week we were pleasantly surprised to find actual fall leaves on the streets Well, they are nothing compared to the rest of the states, but my 4 year old was excited to find red, spotty leaves on the ground.

Paper Filigree Snowflake Gallery I've switched over to using acid free paper and glue to make my paper filigree snowflake ornaments now. I figure there's no sense in putting this much work into something that might fall apart in a few years, and with practice, they're starting to get pretty enough that I'm planning to make quite a few of them. In my search for paper that will hold up over time, I was looking for archival quality paper, but there wasn't much available that wasn't too thick, or too yellow. I visited all sorts of art, craft, scrapbook, and office supply stores in my paper quest, but the pickings were pretty slim for archival paper in shades of silver and white, so I went with mostly acid free paper and will see how it holds up. The pictures don't show it very clearly, but the snowflake above on the right has both white and off white, and it adds an interesting antique look, or at least I thought so until my kids mentioned the old joke about not eating the yellow snow.

say YES! to hoboken: DIY: Homemade Glitter Homemade shimmery glitter is probably the easiest thing you can make and really pretty to look at. Plus, this version is edible and nontoxic for crafting. Supplies: table salt, food coloring and a tupperware container to mix in. A little silver dust used in decorating cakes adds some shimmer-if you’re a shimmer kind of girl-but it’s not completely necessary. how to make a staple-free matchbook notepad. In an effort to use up the damaged & small surplus of 2010 calendars I have on-hand, I've been experimenting with ways to repurpose them. These matchbook notepads were this week's project. They are easy to make .... and adorable ... and completely practical. I'll be making these to drop into my customers' packages as a token of thanks.

Creative Kismet » Blog Archive » little guiding stars Since the new year has started I’ve been trying to think of ways to be more kind to my self. Especially when that nasty gremlins try to creep in and stump me. I remembered this origami star video on You Tube and had to get them involved in my plan. I thought it would be fun to make a whole bunch with kind words and “you are….” phrases inside. I made 60 of them, enough to last me the whole year if I open one a week, plus a few extra just in case.

Kleas: big leaf printing Here's what we made at the preschool this week. It's a project most people are familiar with, but I do want to start documenting our weekly preschool projects here once again. It's been a little rough getting into our handwork this year...we have sixteen new students and of those only one is four years old...the rest are three. And many, a young three. So we've started out slowly...working with beeswax one day a week, drawing another, last week we practiced using scissors. This week we did leaf printing.
