She has shown awesome tutorial for creating paper bows...it is easy and very well described.
Having already tried paper bags, this was the definitely immediate thing to try.
So, Here is my take on the paper bows:
This is a real simple craft which is done using the shavings of pencils.
It is a good activity to do with little older kids who can handle the delicate pencil shavings.
I guess, almost all of us would have done it during our childhood days.
It is simple, easy to make, & with minimal craft supplies. You just need a cardstock, glue, some colourful pencils and a sharpener.
Here is our attempt.
I saw this sometime ago in one of the MAD sort of shows in one of the kid's channels...
The random fonts and sizes of letters gives it a very different kind of look.
I liked the work...and hence decided to give it a try.
So it started with cutting different letters from different newspapers. And then sticking them randomly on a sheet of cardstock.
We also created two cards for father's day..that is today. :-)
I am thinking about using this word art sheet for some other project..like may be a pen holder..any suggestions from the talented vrafters are always welcome...:-)
