I have been missing creating craft projects.
I get my creative juices flowing with the photography, but I need a little more than that sometimes.
Especially when I am so full of ideas like I have been lately.
I used what I had around the house and we created some cute collage disks.
We have lots of random craft stuff loaded into our craft drawers.
For this project we used: foam stickers, magazines, glue/glue-sticks/hot glue, and pom poms.
My guy had some boxes from work that had these round disk shaped things.
I kept them to use for a project and thought they’d work for this.
They looked plain.
I didn’t want to paint on this particular evening so we decided to collage the inside for some added color.
Miss Rose and I did our collages a little different.
She did her inside one on a paper then glued that to the inside.
It worked both ways.
I pasted the magazine pieces directly to the inside of the disk.
I put the pretty side down, so that you would see that when we turned it over.
It’s a mellow effect, but I really like it.
Afterwards, we hot glued our decorations on.
Miss Rose opted for a simple spiral design using varied items like stickers and pom poms.
I went for a 3 dimensional scene with flowers and butterflies.
I rolled some green paper into flower stems and sealed them with glue.
Then I cut out a bunch of petals and made some blooms.
I don’t have a cool butterfly punch like Meg, so I free-handed mine from magazine scraps.
Then I was ready to hot glue some pretty stuff.
As I was putting it together, I decided I wanted a butterfly overload for mine and added some more.
I just folded the butterflies in half and put a stripe of glue down the middle to make them appear to be flying. Cool huh?
I made the flowers pop a little by stacking different levels of craft foam squares underneath them.
I promptly hung them in the dining room.
It needed some more color.
Hugs and stuff,
