My summer holiday officially starts today and I've spent the last few weeks looking for ways to entertain my four year old while I get some sneaky crafting in. Fortunately he's already a handmade convert and fairly skilled with a pair of scissors so we have made some simple paper flowers. It's kind of like the snowflakes you made as children but without the holes cut out.
All you need are some squares of paper. I printed mine double sided using papers from the Dreams Come True CD Rom which you can pick up for the fantastic bargain price of £5.99 at the moment. My son chose some from the Just for Jen download (he does have a penchant for pink and a pritt stick!) and here's what we made:
Being the Mummy, mine are slightly smaller and embellished with some buttons and twine from my stash. Folding them in different ways and varying the cut means you can create lots of different sizes and shapes without the need for a die-cutting machine. I've outlined some of the leftover squares with a white gel pen and used a Kraft card for my base.
We're also going to try making some Christmas decorations and if they turn out well, I may just show them next time! Enjoy your weekend and the rest of the Summer holidays. And don't forget we love to see where your imagination takes you with Funky Hand. Pop a link below or join the fun on the Facebook page.
Happy crafting, love Sammylou xXx
