Kids Crafts with Monique

Well we've reached the final day of our Kids Crafts feature and we hope that you've enjoyed the ideas you've seen this past week.

You definitely won't be hearing your kids say that they're bored for a while with all of these great projects to try out!

Today we have designer Monique Liedtke sharing her talents with us.

Animal Art

At first I had a hard time deciding what to create for today, I had so many ideas! The idea I liked best was to create book marks for my 3 kids, but when I asked my 8 year old son for advice he insisted I’d create this animal for him! So of course I gave in and created this animal for him to play with.

Here’s how I did it (very easy!): 

1. Cover a few empty toilet paper rolls with cardstock. 

2. Choose 4 different sheets of patterned paper (I used Imaginisce’s Outdoor Adventure) and cut 4 strips of 6” x 1 ¼ “, depending on the size of your paper rolls of course. 

3. Use “fringe” scissors on all 4 strips to create “hairs” for your animal and adhere to the paper roll. Punch holes in front and back of the paper rolls and use twine to tie the rolls together. Not too tight as the animal needs space to bend.  

4. Use your I-Top tool and medium sized brads (22 mm)  to create the eyes. 

5. Add pupils and feelers and you’re ready.

Supplies: Imaginsce (Outdoor Adventure): patterned paper; Brad daddies (medium). Other supplies: cardstock: Bazzill Basics; pupils/feeler/twine: misc. Tools: I-Top and paper punch: Imaginisce; Tiny Attacher: Tim Holtz; Fringe Scissors: Martha Stewart.

How super fun is this? What a great idea Monique.
My kids would love to create one of these!!

Well we hope that you've enjoyed this past week and we'd love to see your kids crafts so don't forget to share them with us on our Facebook Page.

Have a great weekend!
