CHRISTMAS TREE POP-UP CARD


We were planning to do a Pop - up Christmas tree card and everybody was so excited! It is easy for 8 to 10 year old children but we helped our little ones to make them too! They would require help in cutting and placing the card and the rest was a lot of fun -adding the glittery stuff et al.

This lovely Christmas pop up card idea came up from a card I came across- Please view 'Pop -Up card Christmas present' at http://inspirationforhome.blogspot.in/2011/12/handmade-christmas-card-craft-ideas.html.

So this is how we made ours.













We used 3d liners in gold and silver for the text 'Merry Christmas' and to make those tiny dots and stars!

Enjoy making these cards and have fun :) Happy Holidays!

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.



I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!
