Eat Then Print

Color Craft Corner Print

Make Your Own Foam Tray Prints! 

You see that Craft Corner image above? I just made that with something most people would throw away! You know those foam trays you get in the supermarket, the ones with food shrink wrapped in them? I bet you never thought those would be the perfect thing to use for easy printmaking. Go get one and follow the instructions below and see for yourself. It is really easy and fun, and great for people who have never tried printmaking because of all the time and materials. All you'll need for this is are some basic items you probably already have around the house.

Eraser Stamp Tea Tags

Recently Keby was making her own tea, from herbs she grew in her garden, and she asked me what she should use for the tags on the tea bag strings. I thought since she was making her own special tea, she should have her own special tags!

 

Lately I've really wanted to start making more stamps and prints. So I decided that's how I would do it! With a stamp you can make lots of copies of something easily but they look a lot nicer and more handmade than printing something from a computer. I thought about making a clay stamp like when I made a chinese chop, and I thought that maybe I'd try a foam tray print because it's easier, but then I saw one of Ryan's white rubber erasers he uses while drawing and I knew it would be perfect! 

Seeds of Love - Valentine's Craft

Seeds of love Card

 

 


V
alentine's day is a time to show appreciation for those you love. I love all my friends, and of course I love gardening. I've decided that I'm going to combine my two loves and give away seeds this February 14th! Of course, I won't just hand people a pile of seeds. Instead, I'm going to make everyone a special card to put the seeds in. Because the only thing better than getting a packet of seeds, is getting a packet of seeds and a really nice handmade card!

 

For this craft you'll need:

Construction Paper, Scissors, Glue, a Packet of Seeds.

F.W. Chop!

F.W. Craft Corner Chop

 

 

 

 

We're back from China, but it was such a great trip I can't stop thinking about it! One of the things that I really liked there were Chinese seals, also known as chops. Chops are blocks that have a name or symbol carved into them and can be used to stamp documents. Chops have been used in China for thousands of years as official signatures. Originally, chops were used just by the Emperor to sign official documents, but over time other officials started using it, and now anyone can have their own chop!

 

 

 

 

 

Make an Origami Wombat

 

Origami Wombat instructions

 

Would you like to play momma wombat and have a little wombat to carry around in your pouch (or pocket if you're not a marsupial)? I know it would be much better to have a real wombat but we don't like being pets, so you are going to have to settle for paper.

 

If you don't have origami paper don't worry. You can take any paper you'd like and cut it into a square for this craft (make sure it's a true square with even sides).

H
ave you ever listened to the soft drip drop of rain on your roof? Doesn’t it sometimes sound like a song? And even though I don’t like thunder, when it’s far away, it sounds like a wild drummer. Sometimes a storm can be so musical. Now you can make your own stormy music with a rain stick!
