I updated my palm tree look by using the stem from a Marvy Luchida Large Flower Pot Craft Punchas the tree trunk.
I used the flower pot part of the punch to make the sand pail. Make a “doughnut” with graduated circle punches to make the handle. I used a EK Success Egg Punch (1/2”) and the handle from a Punch Bunch Basket Punch to make the shovel.
For the sand castle I again used the egg punch to make the doorway and windows. To make the towers I used a small tag punch, trimming the top of the tag and then using the egg punch to make the arrow slots. For the flag I cut down a Stampin’ Up Bitty Banner Punch out down.
Here are the really cute mini sunglasses punch art I designed for my Stampin’ Up Owl Builder Punches that I decked out for the beach because what self-respecting owl would be seen dead at the beach NOT wearing some shades?
THANKS SO MUCH FOR TAKING A LOOK!
My Stampin’ Up Owl Builder Punches All Decked Out For Summer!
I promise to share how I made their sunglasses (from 4 letter “D” punch outs) soon and I’ve already shared the beach ball punch art. This one is made in the same way – only the heart and the circle punches I used were smaller.
Thanks for taking a look – let me know what you think. And why not share your summer clad owls with me.
This brightly colored beach ball punch art can be used on a great summer vacation scrapbook page or a birthday card for a summer birthday!!!
This garland designed for the kiddies to complete came about this past Sunday when I was drafted volunteered to help out during the Extended Care Session for preschoolers (a.k.a. Children’s Church) and had to come up with an emergency patriotic craft project for the Fourth of July. I quickly came up with a project using items from our craft closet that takes about 20 minutes to complete.
The lesson to go along with this craft focused on the yellow ribbon symbolizing remembering our soldiers, the flag symbolizing our freedom, and the “God Bless America” & other religious “die cuts” our freedom of religion. We talked about children in other countries who could not attend church at all or those who did so with the possibility of being arrested.
This would be a great kid’s rainy day craft project for any patriotic holiday or an easy patriotic holiday decoration by varying the paper and foam die cuts used (i.e.; George Washington or Abraham Lincoln silhouette, stars, etc.).
You can also make this as long as you want. I choose to keep it short due to time constraints and to prevent tangling as the children carried it home.
