Crafting with kids and the Paper Maniac!


Paper:  red and green Bindakote high gloss paper, white
Accessories:  buttons, hemp twine, grosgrain ribbon, black kaiser pearls, stickles

Hello!  This week at the Paper Maniac, the focus is on crafts for kids.  The PM store offers many kits that are great for kids and crafting.  I was looking at all of the fabulous buttons from the PM store and decided to make a snowman out of buttons.  My son loves to use my cuttlebug, so he decided we should make an ornament.  He picked the colors, and it was his idea to add the black kaiser pearls for the eyes.  He wanted to use glitter for the snow, but since mom is not into glitter all over the house for months, we decided stickles was a safe and less-messy route!  He got a little help from mom when it came to the bow on top, but otherwise did it all himself!  I think this would be cute as a gift tag or an ornamanet.  Make sure to check out the PM blog for more great ideas for crafting with your kids!
