Names Cards

In my class we made Name Cards. This was to help us know more about us. I used colored pencils and a piece of white paper. But you can do much more with them. You could use them as place mats or name tags and put them on your desk. If you can think of any other ways to use these Name Cards please write them in the comments.

New Clipboard

I had so much fun making my first clipboard that I thought of making another clipboard. But this time I made it for someone. I just gave her the clipboard today. I made the clipboard the same way that I had for the first clipboard. I made a draft, but this clipboard was much more difficult than my first one. I also added some ribbon. I only used 3 kinds of ribbon. On the right is what it looked like when it was all done.

Silly Bandz Sunprint

To all the people that know about Silly Bandz this craft is for you. Okay. Me and my mom stumbled upon  this kit. It was called Sunprint Kit. Now if you have Silly Bandz then pick some of your favorite ones. Now that you have done that, you will take your kit. In the kit there is a acrylic sheet. Then you will find a piece of cardboard. You will cut the piece of cardboard the same size as the acrylic sheet. There is also a blue sunprint piece of paper in the kit. Next you will take cardboard and lay in on the ground. You will take the kit and get the blue sunprint paper and put the paper on the cardboard. You will make sure that the blue side of the paper is facing the ceiling before you put the paper on the cardboard. Now that you've done that you will put your Silly bandz on that paper. Then you will take the acrylic sheet and put it on top of the other stuff. The acrylic sheet will have a sticky piece of paper on both sides of the acrylic sheet so make sure that you take it off. Now that you've done that you will take it outside and leave it out there for a minute to 5 minutes. After you go get it, you will take the paper and run it under some water for a minute. Then you will place it on a table or a counter. Lay it flat on the ground to dry and you are done.   The Silly Bandz leave a print on the paper after you take them off the paper.

This week I made clipboards. All we got were some clipboards. (You can just us old ones that you have at home.) But back onto the list we got clipboards, scrapbook paper, glue stick, Mod Podge and a foam paint brash. It took me about 2 days but I bet if I worked harder it could have taken me 1 day.

Step 1
The first thing I did was draw what I wanted it to look like. After I did that I would mark where the main piece of paper would go.

Step 2
It would take a while to cut the pieces of paper just the right size.

Step 3
Then I would quickly lay the pieces of paper on the clipboard.

Step 4
I would then take the pieces of paper of the clipboard and glue the pieces on the clipboard.

Step 5
Use a sand block and sand the edges of the clipboard to make it so that the paper and the clipboard are smooth and together. (You have to sand down, not up. If you go up, it pulls the paper off the clipboard.)

Step 6
I would wait awhile before you put on 1 or 2 layers of Mod Podge. I put 2 layers of Mod Podge on the clipboard.

Step 7
You will wait about 10 to 15 minutes in between each painted layer of Mod Podge.
