Sharing is caring!

First things first.  Have you checked out my 200th Post giveaway yet?? πŸ™‚ Just leave a comment there to win a handmade card & a surprise gift.

I sooo loved the idea of this month’s artsy-craftsy that I had to make a few crafts too! I’m brimming with amazing ideas but don’t have the time to make all of them. But here’s one I’m sure U’ll love to do. This is not for younger kids.. mostly for Mommies who want to make something for their kid.

  1. Take a printout of the Alphabet on a sheet of paper. For beginners Times Roman is an easier font to cut.
  2. Trace it onto the patterned paper & thermocol & cut along the edges.
  3. Color the Thermocol a bright orange along the edges. Leave the top & bottom bare.
  4. Form a bow with the satin ribbon and stick it in between the patterned paper & thermocol.
  5. Embellish with Stickers.

    Creative skills are definitely appreciable!!

    no offense but why cant crafts make use of non-earth harming materials…buying a sheet of thermocol for Crafts? I mean for any craft ideas for that matter…unable to get myself to say ..yeyey!!!

    We all know that thermocol is a petro product and never bio degrades and eventually gets into the food chain :(…this piece is not going to exist in use for ever right. Sorry about mentioning the other side of appreciating crafts and arts

  3. @Nitya: Thank you. Pink is my daughter’s fav color.

  6. Hi Sudha πŸ™‚ I totally get what u are saying. But U don’t need to buy most stuff that I have mentioned. Most are packaging stuff that we tend to just throw away. Instead reuse and make amazing crafts that u and ur kid would love.
    Just for u .. (n of course myself too) Next month I’ll try to incorporate many crafts that reduce/ reuse & recycle.
