Sezonski Konfeti Shakers: vještom Avanture Posted by jude on Friday, November 4, 2011 · 21 Comments I have to confess, that I wasn’t sure what to call these – they’re not quite sun-catchers, and not really snow-globes, so I decided on Confetti Shakers in the absence of any other ideas. These were born when I accidentally discovered, in one of those ‘Eureka’ moments that you have now and then, that the lid of a Pringles tube, fits exactly onto the lid of a tub of cottage cheese from Tesco (I think other products have the same lids too, mine just happened to be cottage cheese!) This is an activity which you can make as simple or as complex as you like – you don’t have to use cut-out detail (which can be tricky for younger children), but instead just draw a picture, or even use a family photo, or cut-out an image from an old Christmas Card. The following instructions are for the seasonal shakers that I made, but can of course be adapted for your own project: You will need 1. 2. 3. 4. Black tree on orange paper 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.

Felt Quiet Book: Phase One | Craft It Bake It A lovely example, sadly not mine… After the rush of Christmas and the overwhelming possibilities of things to make, January leaves me feeling a little lack luster and lost for ideas. I’m keen to keep my crafty habits up, after all, what else is there to do on my lunch hour? Therefore a new project is in order. Luckily for me quite a few family friends are “With Child” and ready to pop so to speak. After some serious research (Pinterest) I have decided on a Felt Quiet book for baby Number Bell. I’m thinking this will give me a great opportunity to use up lots of spare felt and fabric, experiment with colours, ribbons, buttons, everything..but without the need for a sewing machine, or any real skill.. So far I know baby bell is a boy, but just incase I think I’ll go with a unsex idea. the rest of today will most be planning. usually I’m the sort to rush in and regret later. How hard can it be right? Have you made a quiet book? Watch this space! Like this: Like Loading...
Mozaik ukrase s CD + video tutorial I've been itching to make holiday crafts all year and I'm so excited to share my first one. For this week's DIY project, I'm making some sparkly ornaments made out of something that I'm sure we all have tons of at home: CDs. Check out the video tutorial below! When you cut them into small pieces, they're a great alternative to mosaic tiles with an added touch of shine. P.S. Materials: • Glass ornament (I got a pack of 4 on sale at Michaels for $2!) • CDs (choose ones that are silver underneath and not blue/purple. • Ribbon • Scissors Steps: • Cut CDs into various small shapes and sizes. • Glue a small dot onto the ornament and press a piece of mosaic on top with the shiny side facing up. • Continue gluing until the entire ornament is covered. • Place some ribbon inside the ornament. You're done!

A Year of Quiet Book Pages 2013 In 2013 I felt like I always had at least 2 sewing projects going at all time. With Jax turning 3 back in February, my quiet book projects grew with him. For our annual beach trip, I sewed him a large fire station quiet book. I also began a massive project to sew the whole world! With a new year beginning, it’s fun to look back on the pages I made and shared with you, as I did in 2012 and 2011.

tutoCubesTissusBB Fold your ribbon in half, center and pin to one side of a fabric square. Lay another fabric square on top and sew down the side with 1/4 inch seam. Press seam open. (you can also machine baste your ribbon in place first, as I did on the green square, below) Repeat with the remaining 2 squares and 2 pieces of ribbon until you've got 4 pieces in a row with 3 ribbons sewn in. On the first and last square, fold fabric over to the wrong side 1/4 inch and press. With right sides together and 1/4 inch seam, sew the chenille squares to the square in position C. Now you need to start sewing sides together to form the block. Continue sewing each side to the chenille squares in the same way. Here's what you'll have when you've sewn up all the sides, except the last side where you folded over 1/4 inch. Turn your block right side out.... and fill. Pull the last 2 sides together, match where you folded the fabric, and pin. So cute! Have fun!
MamaVonTeacher: DIY Interactive Books... Here's a little project that I've been working on lately: DIY interactive books out of cheap discount store sticker books. I love sticker books, but the problem with sticker books is that they can only be 'restuck' so many times with a classroom full of preschool students; they about destroyed one of these 're-usable' sticker books in one a day! They did, however, have a great time with the book before annihilating it. Here's a farm themed sticker book that I purchased a while ago at the dollar store: First, I took out the sticker pages and placed the stickers on a piece of white cardstock. Then I did a little surgery and took the book apart - this one just had a couple of staples in the middle that I needed to pull out. With all my pieces in hand, I went to the laminator and carefully sent all the pieces through - be sure to leave enough space around them to have a bit of laminating all around so that the stickers are sealed inside. And for expressive language: 1.
Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows: The Quiet Book Round-up! All right! You've made it! I've subjected you to a million days of quiet book pages, and it is finally the end. Today I'm going to post all the pages, from beginning to end, so you can get a sense of how the whole book flows. So, without further ado, the quiet book! The lion page: The barn and farm animals finger puppets page: The apple tree and the dinosaur: The car page: The ladybug and the flowers: Mr. and Mrs. The weaving page: And the back! So here's some technical how-I-did it: For the base of each page, I used the standard 9x12 felt sheets. Added in May: I finally got around to finishing the loops. This was a really fun project and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking about making one! To download the entire Quiet Book template, click here or on the picture:
Pulcini e gallinelle | Creatività attack Nell’aria si sentono i primi profumi di primavera, e la Pasqua si avvicina, vediamo come decorare la nostra scuola o propria dimora con materiali di recupero. Tirate fuori piatti di carta e plastica, ritagli di cartoncino, spago, colla, pinzatrice, bottoni e mettiamoci all’opera. Il procedimento è intuitivo, i piatti possono essere lasciati integri, piegati o tagliati;si aggiungono i particolari dei colori preferiti e si gioca sulle espressioni dei nostri simpatici pennuti. Le ali e la codina sono strisce di carta colorata tagliata con le forbici zighettate! Possono essere appesi, appoggiati vicino alle finestre o creare un angolo dedicato a loro con tubi di cartone rivestiti (carta igienica, alluminio, scottex)…carini vero? Spero sia un buon suggerimento per tutte le insegnanti ed educatori che mi seguono, e anche per tutti quelli che trovano il tempo di lasciarsi andare ad un attacco di creatività (mamme comprese)! Alla prossima! Mi piace: Mi piace Caricamento...
