Craft day

Fun craft project.

Contents include, sparkle butterflies and flowers
sparkle paint, glue and ribbon and tassel.

Finished project
The girls and I decided to do a craft project today, the heat outside has been pretty unbearable.
For Jenny's birthday my in-laws purchased her this craft. In the kit comes the latern, 50 sparkly butterflies and flowers, glitter paint, ribbon and glue.
The project was very easy basically glueing and folding the butterflies wings to make them appear more realistic. There was an origami crane that you could do and attach with the tassel, personal taste but we chose to omit.
This lantern would look so adorable in a nursery , the colors are so soft and pale.
I love doing crafts with my girls, we purchased a 5 drawer push cart last year and everytime I go to the dollar store I purchase a few things to throw in it, great for rainy days.
Now, if i could only get around to scrapbooking...

Love doing crafty things with the kids! Looks great!

LOL at the scrapbooking. I have a friend that talks up a storm about finding the time to do that as well!

You may want to start crafting your hideaway. Jeff should start building it asap. I hear you are Sam's snitch. I feel the winds blowing trouble your way.... buckle up.

That is a GREAT project! It would be fun to do those in my class next fall. If they aren't too expensive.
