First things first.  Have you checked out my 200th Post giveaway yet?? ๐Ÿ™‚ Just leave a comment there to win a handmade card & a surprise gift.

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

  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.

    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

  7. Hi Sudha ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.
