A to Z Easy Arts and Crafts Ideas
I was hopping and found this graphic designer blog. I love her designs but for now I have to strictly snub on these because I don’t have a budget for it. I just bought a new domain and self-hosted blog plus the fabulous design from Dress Up your Blog; and I haven’t earned that much to cover my expenses. Whoa!
Good thing Adori Graphics offers free templates. I’ve been eyeing for two free designs but this current design that this blog is wearing wins. What I want with this design is that it has wide space for my posts plus two side bars for my widgets; the space are utilize well. The background is white, good for any pictures that I will post. Plus did you notice the icon besides my URL? The Blogger Icon was change into flower which I really wanted for my other blog.
I super love it!!!
To my old template…..bye.. bye…
My niece was working with his project – a bulletin board for Filipino. What she did is paste a “Pabula” (Fable), handwritten in a bond paper, then pasted on a hot pink cartolina. That’s it! It’s a sore in the eyes honestly.
She’s been asking me to help her with her project for how many days but I was too busy. When I saw it I felt guilty. Mama told me to add some design to at least improve the way it looks.
I admit I’m a little bit demanding with materials if I do a project. But since it’s late at night already, and we only have few materials, then I used the resources that we only have.
I cut the bond paper leaving a few centimeter of the pink cardboard that serve as its border and pasted on a white cardboard. White is universal color; it goes along well with other color.
Then I made several 3D flowers out from the hot pink cardboard and glued in 2 corners of the white cardboard.
I love the simplicity of the outcome!
I know this still needs improvement..
I used recycled notebooks during my high school days. Not that my parents can’t afford, I just opted to used recycled notebook.
My sister, a preschool teacher then, had many used workbooks with no prints at the back of each page. So what I did, I cut the workbooks crosswise, covered with newspaper or old magazine.
I’m not bothered using the recycled notebook. My teachers even appreciated it. If only I knew back then that there’s blogging, then I probably take a pic of it. LOL
Classes had just started. I’m encouraging my nieces to use recycled notebooks. But they hate my idea…. not until they saw my output
So here’s what I did……
Goldilocks Box for the cover:
Not that I’m a big fan of Goldilocks. It’s just that the cakes we usually order are Goldilocks.
Look at the square hole in the middle. I have a pretty idea for this.
At the back of the box, the figure says “RECYCLE”
Few scratch papers from our office…
Size is A4 so I cut into half
And come up with these beautiful recycled notebooks.
I purposely save the hole for the front cover of notebook, so that kids can insert picture.
My niece love it…. and plan to insert Justin Beiber’s pic…. I honestly hate her idea… LOL
Last Christmas my niece requested me [again] to make spoolie dolls for her friends. She’s so demanding, that she want to dress up all. But I was so tired that I insist that they are male Spoolie dolls and do not need dress at all. The very reason actually is that making small dresses for these dolls are very tedious…. and I was running out of time.
They look so cute and it seems each doll has its own character though they just look alike.
Swaying side by side…
“Help I’m drowning!!!!”
The only girl among the spoolie dolls
Here’s my first project using Clayzee polymer clay. This is not an airdry clay, but this one is still unbaked. I still have to wait for my nephew who kept his clay project, because it’s actually a secret… shhh… the name of his crush was stamped on it. LOL… Perhaps tomorrow will be a perfect time for us to bake it since it’s Saturday.
I actually do not know how long should I bake this since there’s no instruction in the packaging of the clay. If you have any idea, please drop a comment, I will really appreciate it.
Two of my nieces was with me when I made this. And they kept on arguing on what letter should I put. Since they both have the same initials I decided to put the VP; as Vanessa Pearl or Venus Pearl. And they both agree with me! (*_*)
Do you have any idea where I can link this for brown? I stumbled once but I forgot the site….
I decided to make a park-theme dish garden.
To compliment with the theme I made a bench out from Makin’s Air Dry Clay; combining two colors to achieve a different shade. I used the bronze bead wire as nails. I made the bench 3 days before Mother’s Day, since I still have to let it dry.
Mama was surprised with the outcome. She totally loves it!
There should be a lamp. But I was running out of time when I made it. Maybe I’ll install the lamp later or perhaps I’ll make another theme park dish garden…
