Paper Chain People

Paper Chain People
Paper Chain People Craft While putting together these Christmas paper chains, I decided to create several more paper chain templates of people, animals and fun shapes. My kids love making accordion fold paper chains – I guess sometimes the simplest kids crafts can also be the most satisfying! Check out all of the printable crafts on Craft Jr.!

This paper plate porthole has a different version as well, called the paper plate aquarium. When I created this particular project several years ago, I wanted it to look like your were peering through a ship’s porthole.

we like it wild: bottle gardens As much as we love to garden, sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do it all. If there’s a way we can shorten our to-do list, we’ll take it. This week’s project, a no-fuss recycled windowsill herb garden, has knocked watering the plants off our list. Self-watering planters like these aren’t a new idea; we remember our own childhood craft books that taught us how to poke holes through Dixie cups or invert two liter plastic bottles to grow our own little bean garden. This grown-up version is much better looking and works great for small herbs and plants.

molas Molas are a form of reverse applique using many layers of fabric. In a later lesson we will sew simple molas out of layers of felt. In the mean time let's make one out of construction paper so that we can better understand the reverse applique process.  Flowers, birds, fish and suns all work well as mola designs. The top layer is yellow with a bird shaped hole cut out of the middle. Whenever I need to cut a hole out from the middle of a paper, I pinch the paper and make a tiny cut on the fold.

Let's do our part and make some snowflakes for those sweet children and staff! Go HERE for information of where to send yours by January 12th. xo After my blog friend Janette shared this fabulous link to Vintage Junky's easy snowflake tutorials, I couldn't resist. I've been a snowflake-making maniac and loving every minute of it. :) Michelle of Vintage Junky shares how to make 3 different snowflakes...which include folding instructions to turn an 8x11" piece of paper into a square, then into a 6-sided hexagon (very important for the base of the snowflake!) go HERE for those tutorials.

A wider origami basket ⇆ bloomize Have you tried making this basket and found that the handles get in the way? That’s how I feel. Then you could try the following version as it opens up the basket much wider, which I found was possible when I made some extra folds. It’s based on an origami creation by Kazukuni Endo [遠藤和邦]: With a piece of square, fold diagonally on each side to get the creases. Unfold.

art actually: paper sculptures I just have to share the paper sculptures my Kindergarten and 1st graders have been making! They loved learning about abstract art and did such a great job creating an abstract composition! These are 100% out of recycled materials. Cardboard from old boxes and paper scraps out of the scrap bin. These are just a few that I hung up in the hallway. We used my favorite glue to construct these!
