Easy DIY Card ideas, Love Bug Finger Print Card, perfect for Valentines Day, Mothers day ideas, Kids Craft Ideas, Handmade CardsStart by painting your child’s finger with a thin-medium coat of paint. Quickly press it down on the paper to create a finger print.  You can do them all the same color or mix it up as seen in the photo above. Start with the lighter color so you do not have to clean the finger off as mush between prints.

Allow the paint to dry. Then use the sharpie marker to draw faces, arms and legs on them.  Layer on scrapbook paper or cardstock to create a custom card.

Football Juice Boxes~Football Party Idea

This weekend is the big game!  Whether you are hosting a party, going to a party, or planning on just tuning in at home, this idea will have even the littlest football fans feeling the football spirit!  Or, maybe you aren’t watching the game at all, but are planning a sports themed party for a kid in your life.  These would be perfect for that!  A decoration that is useful and inexpensive!

You will need:

Brown paper (I used normal weight scrapbook paper but construction paper or card stock would also work)

White paper (Scraps work nicely)

Scissors and glue or tape

Juice boxes

Begin by cutting your paper into three strips.  Now fold around your juice box creasing with your fingers as you get to an edge.

Tape or glue the paper to the box.  I would recommend this, because otherwise the paper could slide off and then you will have a juice box accident on your floor.  So, unless you are going to have the child take off the football paper before drinking, do yourself a favor and attach it to the box.

Once you have covered the juice box, you can cut off the end of your strip of paper.  If you used paper with a white side like I did, you can use those scraps for the white accents.  If not, grab a piece of printer paper or some scraps.  Cut some thin strips.  You will want one longer one and a few shorter ones.  Attach them on to resemble the laces or threads.  This would work great on boxes of crackers too.  It would take more paper, but would make your party set up look great!

Valentines day Craft ideas, no sew Bow tie shirt for kids, fast and easy low cost and super cute!

No Sew Bow-tie Valentine’s Shirt

This could be made for a boy or a girl, but this cute little number is for my handsome kindergartner.  This shirt is a simple project and can be made by almost any skill level. My little guy is going to love this “fancy tee”, watch out girls he is dressed to impress.

Supplies:

  • T shirt
  • Polka dot fabric – fat quarter cut is more than enough.
  • Red fabric – I just used some scraps that I had
  • No sew adhesive – found in fabric departments, I’ve even seen it in Walmart
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Iron
  • Scissors
 Valentines day Craft ideas, no sew Bow tie shirt for kids, fast and easy low cost and super cute!
Directions:
  1. Start by getting your bow-tie shape. Since I’m one for symmetry I simply did this by folding my piece of paper in half and drawing half of a bow-tie then cutting it out. It took a few tries to get the size and shape I wanted.
  2. Once you have your bow-tie, do the same thing for your heart shape.
  3. Following the instructions from your no sew adhesive, adhere your fabric to the adhesive using your iron -medium heat and no steam
  4. Do this for the polka dot fabric and the red fabric
  5. Using your bow-tie template trace onto the polka dot fabric and cut out
  6. Cut out a small strip to wrap around the center of the bow-tie as well
  7. Do the same for the heart template and the red fabric.
  8. Peel off your adhesive’s paper backing for the bow-tie and the strip.
  9. Wrap the strip around the center of the bow tie, making sure that the ends are on the back side. Place it on your T shirt where you want it to lay and use your iron to adhere it to the shirt.
  10. (Again, follow the instructions from your adhesive for temperature and time)
  11. Once the bow-tie is secure,  place the heart where you want it to lay and iron on.
  12. Finished!
