Getting Creative

  • Today your kid drew a heart on a tiny scrap of paper and gifted it to you. Tomorrow he brings home a small sketch of a house. A week later you have collected an array of little bits and scraps of your little one's masterpieces and they're all over the house!

    Here's an interesting way you can document all those works of art which are too small to frame or display!

    Today we're going to make a Scrap Book Page out of a little kid's Tiny Works of Art!

    It's simple and not at all messy!

    Things you'll need are:

    1. Chart paper the size of your proposed scrap book page

    2. Another few chart papers of complementing colours

    3. Scissors & Punch

    4. Double sided tape

    5. Decorative stickers

    Punch holes in your 1st chart paper so as to be able to create a file of many such pages later which becomes a full scrap book

    Place the art work on the chart paper accommodating all the drawings you would like to display on that page.

    TIP: When scrapbooking, never leave all your photos/drawings the same size or the same shape. Feel free to cut out shapes along the edges of the drawings. This gives your scrap book depth and makes it much more artistic!

    So cut around some of the drawings and place them on another coloured chart paper creating fun borders.

    Now rearrange the cut drawings on the page. 

    When you're happy with the arrangement, slide all the drawings off the page in that order before sticking them onto the page.

    add some more colour and dimension to your page by randomly cutting out a piece of coloured chart paper and sticking it somewhere on the page so that this colour too shows through the gaps between drawings.

    Bring the drawings back on and stick them in the arrangement you had decided on.

    You're almost done!

    Use the stickers or some glitter to decorate page!

    Voila!

    Share the Love! :)

  • THINGS TO DO WITH YOUR KID'S ART! - Greeting Card

    How fun it is to intertwine one arty activity with another! Today let's talk about making greeting cards from art that your kid has already made!

    From a kid's painting on paper comes a beautiful card for Dad!

    Once again, it's simple and not at all messy!

    Things you'll need are:

    1. 1 chart paper that matches with the card colours

    2. Scissors

    3. Double sided tape

    4. Decorative letters/glitter pens

    Place the artwork on a matching coloured chart paper and cut to size, leaving a half inch border all around.

    You then want to paste the double sided tape onto the back of the artwork and keep it ready.

    Stick only one half of the artwork down onto the chart paper.

    After this is done, fold the chart paper to make the card. Then stick the other half of the artwork down onto the chart paper to ensure no bubbles or creases in the paper!

    You're almost done!

    Use the letters or glitter pens to address the card to "Dad"!

    Voila!

  • Things to do with your kid's art! - Paper Frame

    It's every mom's dilemma - 'where should I keep my kid's art?' But one thing's for sure, you DEFINITELY want to keep it. It's those little drawings, paintings and scrawled out letters that steal your heart every time.

    So why not put your kid's art to some good use.

    Don't be afraid to get creative!

    Today we're going to make a Paper Frame out of a little kid's Cut Out Work!

    It's simple and not at all messy!

    Things you'll need are:

    1. 2 different coloured chart papers

    2. Scissors

    3. Double sided tape

    4. Decorative letters

    Place the cut out work on a matching coloured chart paper and cut to size, leaving a one inch border all around.

    Cut the second chart paper to a size larger than the first. An inch larger on all sides should do fine.

    Stick the cut out work on the first chart paper and then that onto the second chart paper.

    You're almost done!

    Use the letters to decorate or name your paper frame before hanging it up in your home!

    Voila!
