New Year, New Books - and it's time to get crafty. One of our recent finds is BiblioCraft: The Modern Crafter's Guide to Using Library Resources to Jumpstart Creative Projects. It's full of creative DIY's for year-round inspiration and it has kid-friendly projects, too! One of our resident crafters, Ranzel, shows us how.
You Will Need:
Different colored paper (thick card stock)
A Pair of Scissors
A Glue Stick
Measure the size of the house you want and cut it out on heavy paper. We used 6 x 6 inches.
Make a roof to fit over it and glue to the top of your house.
Add details you want like a door, windows and a chimney.
Trim the edges to fit.
Cut a small rectangular piece to fit the back of your house.
Fold it back to make a tab and attach it to the back of your paper house to make it stand.
Cut green triangles and fit them together to make trees. Add other details to your paper town.
Add other houses and buildings and set them up on a paper board. Play and display!
