Little Chef Recipe Card Holder Craft for Mother's Day

Little Chef Recipe Card Holder Craft for Mother's Day www.daniellesplace.com

What you will need:

Cardstock (Heavy Paper)

Colored Pencils

Scissors

Jumbo Craft Sticks

Spring Clothes Pins

Glue

Paper Cup

Plaster of Paris (Optional)

 

How to Make the Little Chef Recipe Card Holder:

1. Print out the Little Chef Pattern onto card stock (Heavy paper).

2. Color the picture and cut it out.

3. This craft can be made two different ways:

You can just use the pattern and a clothespin glue to the back of the arm, and then glue magnets to the back of the pattern and the clothespin so that the card holder can be attached to a metal surface.

Or you can glue the little chef pattern to a jumbo craft stick or paint stick so that the entire pattern is on the stick, and then glue the spring clothespin behind the little chef's arm so you can't see it from the front.

Place some Plaster of Paris in a paper cup and use tape to keep the little chef on the stick in place while it dries hard.

4. To finish write your favorite recipe on a recipe card and place it on the clothespin. The Recipe Card in this picture was found on the Internet.

2. Cut a piece of clear vinyl a little bigger than the pattern.

Mother's Day Window Cling Craft www.daniellesplace.com

4. Use the black leading to outline the entire picture starting from the inside of the picture working out. Turn the pattern around as you work so you don't mess up the wet leading with your hands.

5. Let the leading dry for a least an hour.

6. Fill in the image using the transparent paint. Don't make it too thick and make sure you don't leave any spaces.

7. You can add designs to the images by dropping different colors of paint onto the surface paint. Use a toothpick to make swirls and lines by touching the tip of the toothpick in the middle of the dot and moving outwards through the background color. The "Mom" window cling on the right was made using this technique.

8. Let the image dry over night and then carefully peel it off the vinyl.

You can use Plaid Gallery Glass Window Cling Paint from Amazon to make these clings.

Foil Tape and Glue Flower Bookmarks for Mom

Mother's Day Craft - Foil Tape and Glue Flower Bookmarks for Mom from www.daniellesplace.com

 

What you will need:

foil tape

Jumbo, 4-inch Paper Clips

Aluminum Foil Tape (3" wide or wider) or Aluminum Foil

Sharpie Fine-Tip Permanent Markers

Flower Sequins (Gemstones) and other Sequins

Low Temp Mini Glue Gun with Lots of Clear Glue Sticks

Scissors

Very Thin Copper Wire (Optional)

 

How to Make the Foil and Glue Bookmarks:

Foil and Glue Flower Bookmark Craft for Mother's Day from www.daniellesplace.com

1. Cut the 3-inch foil tape so it is 6 inches long. Carefully wrinkle up the tape and then flatten it out somewhat. (The wrinkles will give your flowers sparkle.) Fold the piece in half so you have a 3" x 3" folded piece.

2. Draw a flower shape on one side of the tape with a Sharpie Marker. Add color to the petals of the flower with Sharpie Markers, or glue on sequins and gems.

3. Outline the flower using your low temperature glue gun. Follow all the lines you drew.

4. Glue a flower gem in the center of the flower shape.

5. Using your glue gun fill in the flower shape with the glue by squeezing out the glue and then dabbing it with the end of your glue gun. You want the glue to be textured. This will make the flower sparkle. Keep doing this until the entire flower is filled in. The more glue you add the more muted the colors will be.

6. When the glue is dry cut out around the flower with the tape still folded so you have two flower shapes that are exactly alike. Peel off the backing from the flower and stick the flower on the end of a jumbo paper clip. Peel off the back of the matching flower shape and stick it to the back of the glue flower to cover the other side of the paper clip.

7. The flower on the right was made a little differently. First a flower shape was made from very thin wire and glued to a piece of aluminum foil. Then it was outlined with the glue gun. Gems were glued to each petal, and then the petals were filled in with glue. When the glue was dry the foil was ripped away from the flower leaving a pretty, somewhat jagged edge.

We would love to see your glue flowers! Send us a picture and we will publish them here!
