Time for trips to the pool, stops for ice cream, catching up on reading...and yes..
the dreaded, "I'm bored Mom".
So rather then see your kids spend enless time in front on the TV or playing video games...why not suggest a craft!
All week long we have kids craft ideas using our GlueArts adhesives and our Designers creative ideas!
Accent It All Flowers
Designed by: Audrey Pettit
Glue Arts Accent It All Vinyl
Glue Arts Glue Gun and Glue Gun Sticks (optional)
My daughter loves making flowers to decorate her room with. These fun Accent It All flowers may look a bit complicated, but really are quite simple to make. The best part is, with all the fun colors the Accent It All vinyl comes in, you can make a whole rainbow of flowers, in different sizes. Once you learn the easy folding technique, the sky is the limit.
2. Cut a thin strip of vinyl for the flower center. Our piece was about 3/4" thick, but again, it could be any size. Roll the strip into a tube, leaving just about a 1/4" tail at the bottom. Fold the tail back onto the tube and smooth flat. It won't look like much yet, but not to worry.
8. Last step is to cut a rectangular piece of green Accent It All for the flower stem. This can be any size. Ours was approximately 2" x 4". Roll into a tube, and attach it to the flower base using another thin strip of green vinyl.
9. If need be, use the Glue Arts Glue Gun to apply a small drop of glue to the flower center to keep it in place.
10. Cut leaves from green vinyl and wrap around base.
