GlueArts Crafts for Kids Day Two!!

We're back!

We've got some more fun crafts for you to create this summer!

Just grab your GlueArts Adhesives, Legos (yes Legos!lol) and you're good to go!

Today Designer Andrea Budjack has a fun way to use all those Legos that we ALL find laying around on the floor. Only instead of stepping on them...you're kids can make a fun pencil holder. Think bigger, different shapes....toothbrush holder...you name it!

And Designer Grace Tolman has not only a great craft idea...but something kids can use and save their money in this summer! Help them make the craft and then work toward saving money for something special!


LEGO Pencil Box
Designed by: Andrea Budjack


Supplies:
Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive
Glue Arts Pro Glide Perma Tac
Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares
Glue Arts UCutIt Foam
My Mind's Eye - cardstock
Pink Paislee - cardstock
Bazzill Basics - paper
Papertrey Ink - Stamp, die cut (butterfly and scallop border), buttons
Sizzix - die cut (circle)
Tsukineko - ink
Really Reasonable Ribbon - twine
My Little Shoebox - alpha stickers
Craft supply - lace, golf pencils, thread
Lego Blocks

Instructions: 
1. Have kids build a pencil holder using lego blocks.

2. Apply Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive to one side of the pencil holder and add lace trim.
3. Die cut one scallop border, distress edges with ink and add Glue Arts UCutIt 3D foam to the back side. Mount onto pencil holder, allow lace to peek out the bottom. Tie twine around holder.
4. Die cut one circle from cardstock, stamp and mount using Glue Arts Perma Tac and UCutIt 3D foam.

5. Die cut and distress edges of two butterflies. Apply Glue Arts Perma Tac to first butterfly and attach to circle, using UCutIt 3D foam to attach the second on top. Tie together two buttons, back with Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares and adhere to butterfly.
6. Add alpa stickers to the front of the holder.

7. Cut papers the length of the pencil, apply Perma Tac and roll pencils to cover.
8. Ready to place on your child's desk and create away!




Monogrammed Jar Coin Bank
Designed by: Grace Tolman

Supplies:
Glue Arts Accent it all (pink and blue)
Glue Arts High Tac
Glue Arts Glue Gun
Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive
Glue Arts U Cut it Foam
Pattern papers- (blue stripe and blue dot) Piggy Tales; (florals) Cosmo Cricket; (stripe) BoBunny
Circle tags- American Crafts
Border punch- Fiskars
Canvas letters- Prima
Ribbon- American Crafts
Pen Markers- (green) American Crafts; (dark yellow) Tombow
Others- Recycled food jars


Instructions:

1. Clean the jars well. 
2. Gather your supplies.
3. Add a decorative border on the Accent it all vinyl sheets. 
4. Do one side first, and then measure how wide you want it to go on the jar then cut the strip to accommodate these measurements. Then punch out the other edge with the same border punch. 
5. Adhere the vinyl strip onto the jar. 
6. Measure the inside of your vinyl strip where the pattern paper will be layered on.
7. Cut the pattern paper according to your measurement. 
8. Adhere the pattern paper strip with the high tac adhesive. 
10. Distress the edge of the circle so the unevenness of a freehand circle won’t be too noticeable. (If child is making this project, make sure you help them with this process as you’ll be working with the blade part of the scissor to distress)
9. Trace your lid onto the pattern paper and cut.

11. Use the Glue Arts ribbon adhesive to add a ribbon trim on the edge of the lid
12. Glue gun the pattern paper circle on the top of the lid. 
13. With some adult help, cut a slit about 1/8” in size on the top of the lid.
***I initially thought that my craft knife will do the job but my lid proved to be thicker that I’d anticipated so I had my husband help me out. He used a chisel and a hammer to create the opening. 


14. Sand down the opening to get rid of the extra metal dust and to smooth out the opening. 
15. Punch out a circle from pattern paper and cover the metal edge tag with it with some high tac. 
16. Add color to the canvas letter with stamp marker and add the monogram to the center of the metal edge tag. 
17. Add some foam adhesive to the back of the tag and adhere to the jar.

  15. I think my son would just about flip a lid if I glued his Legos. he has 5 tupperware containers full. They are so awesome for hours of creativity. However, my son loves to use his very own glue arts gun. Which I have got to paint this summer so it doesn't show the pink which is just NOT for Boys MOM! Great projects.

  36. I love these ideas. My favorite is probably the leggo box. That would even make a cute gift for a male elementary teacher. (These are the hardest to come up with homemade gift ideas for, I think) Thanks for great ideas and a great giveaway! I would love to try gluearts and the vinyl sheets.
