Tissue Paper Flying Fish
Oct 6th, 2012 by Craftylocks

 

I have always thought these looked beautiful, but worried they may be tricky to make … don’t worry – be crafty, they are simple!
You just need to catch yourself a strip of card, some tissue paper sheets and scraps, and some string. Staple the strip of card into a circle.
Make sure your tissue paper is wide enough to go all the way around the circle, and roll a bit over the strip of card and glue into place. Repeat with another shorter piece of tissue.
Trim the tissue paper to the shapes you want and glue on some details like fins and eyes.
Punch four holes evenly around the cardboard strip and tie a piece of string to each hole. Tie all the pieces of string together.
Hook your fish into a tree to catch a wave in the wind or set the children running with the fish flying behind them.

Simple Card Masks
Oct 2nd, 2012 by Craftylocks

 

Another one of the classic, simple paper crafts. Although not new, still a great one to do!

The basic mask shape can be quickly and simply decorated as we did here when we remembered we needed this type of mask for school at the last minute! Or they can be ornately decorated with all manner or beautiful things. We will get around to one of those ornate ones another day.

We made some small changes to the basic masquerade mask shape. I drew the basic shape with rounded ends, onto the black card and then gave it to the children to add shape to the sides.

Then they drew shapes for the glittery bits. We glued and sprinkled glitter just into those shapes. We liked the restraint of the plain black between the glitter – or perhaps we would have been late if we added more glitter!

Once your mask is ready, just add a piece of card for a handle – then you are done and can dash out the door to school or your party!
